I downloaded the current All_in_one_Garmin_map for EUROPE = the file gmapsupp.img to my PC and transferred it to my Garmin etrex Vista Hcx. I cannot find either a way nor a file to transfer the similar map to Garmin BaseCamp. Who can help?

Thank you for your answer. Sorry, I have to correct my description of my question, because I didn't transfer it to my Garmin etrex yet. Now, after the successful transfer to the PC, I tried it to do. But it didn't work: because I got the fault indication that the file (6,49 GB) ist too big for the device (extern memory card 16 GB). Is there another way to get this large EU-file into Garmin BaseCamp for routing or for the transfer of parts/sections from the EU-file to the device?

Thank you for your help. I tested the first suggestion anc copied some files into a new folder "osmmap", e.c. 70013010.img, 70013011.img, 70013042 as well as osmmap.img, osmmap.mdx, osmmap.tbd and osmmap_mdr.img. Than I started BaseCamp. But BaseCamp don't identify "osmmap". Did I forget sth.? To your second suggestion: I installed gmaptool.eu. The first try didn't work; I should read some informations about using the program first. gw tuzzilinga

I also have the same device and on a Windows PC I connected the device via USB with the device in mas storage mode (set-up, interface,usb mass storage). Then in Basecamp click device and receive from device. I think when I first did it the OSM map and the base map were there to transfer. I also found when I connected a NUVI 1310t the road map could be used on my PC but only while the NUVI was connected. I have just retried it and you will also have to click maps, map product and hopefully you will have one or two to choose from.

You can either download the parts of which the map is assembled here or split the gmapsupp.img with gmaptool.eu.
Though I never tried Basecamp the split map worked like charm with QLandkarteGT or Mapsource. With the two latter programs I could create gmapsupp.img's of the parts of the map I needed.
