    Sorry for the techo-idiocy.
    the updated map would be "compressed gmapsupp.img"....

    how do you transfer maps to your device? via Mapsource or via copy-paste?

    download the compressed gmasupp.img to your pc. unzip the file and transfer this to the sd card of your garmin device. make sure to back up the original one.

    Copy-paste it to your device. Be sure to first backup the original gmapsupp.img in your device....

    ^ straight from nuvi ... iirc, its on settings/map/info, you would see check marks on enabled maps, uncheck/check the map you want to disable/enable

    As previously mentioned on this thread, RoadGuide overrides OSM so make sure to switch from one over to another depending on which location has better POI's.

    Here's how I do it: the OSM file is loaded in the gps' internal memory and I placed the Roadguide file in an SD card. If I want to use Roadguide I leave the SD card inserted. If I want OSM I just pull out the SD card.
