    I downloaded some new Baja California Maps into my Garmin 378 (on a garmin data card). It said it was successful both on my computer and on my GPS but I cannot find the maps on the GPS.
    When I go into MAP information, there are no Baja Maps.

    HELP!

    They are MapSource maps or Garmin approved?

    Garmin approved. A friend used the same one in his 276.

    Basically the same unit as mine.

    Baja Expeditioner map is the name of them.

    If I remember correctly when I put maps on my fathers Streetpilot....once I downloaded them, I had to go into the map settings and check off the maps I wanted enabled. I think they disable them by default so the maps load up quicker

    EDIT just reread the post....I've run into the map not showing up as well, I did a full reset of the gps

    Did you check in your pocket? :flipoff2:

    Yeah, that is exactly what i thought but no luck. I had that problem too, i checked all the boxes and whammo they worked.

    Try completey erasing the data card, loading the maps again

    Oh, AND DONT TAKE THE MEMORY CARD OUT OF THE UNIT! :D
