Perhaps a stupid question from someone who has had a number of years experience with Garmin.
But how do you actually copy the map-set (and make it work) to a USB drive?

Edit: I would like to plan for a trip to the States, as well as having a similar Europe map available.

Thanks

No such thing as a stupid question ;)

Copy the map file, will end in .img, to a folder named Garmin either on a card or stick.

Hi Sussamb

Thanks very much for the info. I hoped it might be that easy, but usually things are not as easy as it appears! :D
