GPS & Digital Data Discussion / combining Garmin maps
« on: June 24, 2011, 11:58:00 am »
I have a Legend unit and I have paid Garmin to download the Rails-to-Trails maps for the Eastern half of the United States.  I have not downloaded them yet since I am waiting for my SD cards to arrive from Amazon but I was wondering; these two different maps cover the Eastern half of the US, essentially from the Mississippi to the East coast.  Is there a way to combine the files into one map so I can plan an extended route across both sections using one SD card and not have to worry about carrying a second card and all the technical stuff about splitting the route?  Or am I just being weird? ???

My new toy should arrive in the next few hours according to UPS.  I've tracked in online and Amazon shipped it yesterday and it's out for delivery today.  I'm pretty psyched.  I'm replacing my Magellan CrossOver that is still a great unit, but I have two of them, one for the card and one for my bike (motorcycle) but my new Garmin should work for all my modes of transportation including hiking.  I already have a 4GB micro SD card from an older cell phone that should work.  (I know the Garmin won't address the entire card, but hey, it's cheaper than buying an new one since this one is just laying around unused.)  I already have a RAM mounting system for my previous Magellan so I only needed the RAM mount for the Garmin and I found that on sale for $4.44.  Pretty darn cheap if'n you ask me.  I grabbed that one when I saw it.

I am ready to add some maps and was thinking about the entire 49 states in the US road map for $59 or all of North America for $79.  Then I was thinking about the section of topos that include all of Kentucky.  Does anyone have any advice for which maps to buy?

Edit:  My new GPS has arrived and I still hope to get some advice from some of y'all that are more experienced that me.  Installed my batteries and turned it on at 12:55 pm.  I have ordered the DVD for the City Navigator of North America.
