    .img file

    I just purchased micro 2 GB SD card and loaded the .img file into the SD card but my edge 705 can't seem to read it? I followed the manual on P34 but doesn't seem to go any further. In the manual there's no instruction on how to instruct/option the GPS to read the SD card.

    Is there only one type of SD card, maybe the Edge 705 doesn't recognized this type of SD card?

    I notice in Garmin GPS folder there is a basemap.img file, is this the map.

    Also, I have mapsource and I can't seem to load the .img file there

    You are probably trying to load maps that are not indexed correctly. Try this tutorial at GPS File Depot (there is also a tutorial on loading maps from MapSource).

    What maps are the image file from? Only Garmin maps or the maps at GPS File Depot will work correctly if installed via MapSource correctly. Can you view them in MapSource on your desktop?
