    Default Garmin Quest

    Hi Guys

    Anybody know how many maps I can load to my Quest? I would like to have the SA Street map, West and Norh Cape and Eastern Cape on but it only always loads two maps. Any ideas on how to overcome this?

    Thanks

    Morne,

    Are you talking about the T4A maps in addition to SA SM Vers. 1?

    If so, you probably have loaded them all on, the QuestSA has 243Mb available memory for maps, the SA Street Version 1 consumes about 85Mb, and T4A about half of that.

    But you might only see SASMV1 & only ONE of the T4A if you look under "Map Info". But don't worry, they're all there!

    Hi Family Dog

    I have the same prob with my quest - when loading SA Streetmaps and the 2, maybe 3 T4A maps I'll need for a trip, on Map info I can only see SA Streetmaps and 1 T4A map. Are you sure theyre all there? Have to check later ... Another thing, whenever I add a map, it erases previous map sets. Does this mean everytime I wish to update, I need to copy ALL maps i want on the unit, and cannot add just one to the current set?

    Cheers
    So much to see, so little time...

    Hi Brennain,

    Yep, they will all be there! The T4A Maps are displayed as separate images which is why you will only see one, but all those that you originally selected will be there.

    It's a hassle, but you will have to reload all the Mapsets simultaneously from Mapsource, as your original Mapsets will be over-written when uploading additional mapsets.

    Remember to disable T4A (or the Garmin map) when you wish to use the alternate mapset. You can do this under "Map Info", simply remove the tick in the appropriate box.

    Reynard, I am under the impression that the Streetpilot can not do track logging, so it won't be the ideal tool for the off-roader. It sounds like good value if you only need an on-road navigating GPS.

    HiFi Corp also had the Quest for quite a good price the last time I looked (think it was R5200 or thereabouts).

    Gerrit thanks for the headsup. I'm going to buy the guy's Garmin V for track logging T4A. I don't need anything zoom-zoom.
