    Multiple sets of maps on my Extrex Vista hcx

    I have a Garmin Extrex Vista HCx. Can I load two different sets of maps onto the unit? Maybe by using two different memory cards and swithcing the card in the GPS unit when I want to change maps? Will that work?

    Thanks.

    You can use multiple memory cards, but there is no problem loading multiple maps on your gps if you start with maps on the computer and a blank card (not a good idea to try to put maps on a preloaded card). Using mapsource, just highlight the different maps you would like to transfer. On the gps, from the map page, hit the menu button and this brings a dialog box, one option is to "setup map". Click this and hit menu again, and you will have the option to show or hide all your different maps on your gps. I currently have 9 mapsets on my card, works very nice.

    Hopefully I've done an ok job explaining this.
    I'm looking forward to regretting this.......

    Aha! Thanks. That's exactly what I was trying to do.
