    Apparently the Basecamp 4.70 upgrade for Windows does not work correctly. There have been multiple reports at GPSFileDepot that the new version of MapInstall included in this package cannot send maps to the GPS. If you are getting a message to upgrade Basecamp, you might want to skip this version.

    If you're having problems transferring maps and have recently upgraded Garmin's software, you can downgrade to an older version here: http://www.gawisp.com/perry/mapsource/

    Alternately, you can use Garmin's older Mapsource software.
