Can't install Maps on PC for BaseCamp with new Zumo XT firmware 5.90

Post by GeorgeStevens »

Since installing the brand new firmware 5.90 to the Zumo XT the option to install City Navigator maps also on PC for usage with BaseCamp seem's to be gone - only a fresh installation on the unit itself is possible. The whole map administration has been changed and a installation of the maps to quickly access them with BaseCamp without connection of the Zumo XT to the pc is not possible any more.

If this is a bug (some time ago this problem already appeared after a Garmin Express update!), please fix this quickly - but if this is meant to be so, this is i complete no-go for planning some routes on the pc. Even that the Zumo XT has a lot faster access to his onboard maps than the units before, this is no way for working quick and reliable on pre-planned routes. The maps have to be on the pc for this - please change this back...

No point asking that here as we have nothing to do with Garmin. If you look through the threads here you'll see this is a known issue and some work arounds are posted. Any queries please post in those threads so we don't have yet another one running. Thanks
