for the first time I am using a GPS like this I got yesterday.
The Garmin etrex 20.
Bought it on Amazon and it came with a basemap of only China (everything outside of the borders of China is blue/Ocean)
I live in Japan though and would like to have a map of that country.
So I got the Japan OSM, put the gmapsupp into the “Garmin” folder in the SD card and installed it in basecamp mapinstall.
when I now open the “map” menu in the etrex20 I still am in the middle of the “ocean”.
So I go into settings → map and tried to figure out what I can do.
Disabled all maps and wanted to enable the OSM map but when I press “enable” it says I have to change to “automotive mode”
to get it to work.
Easy, I change the setting to “automotive mode”, go back and press enable on the map…but it says the same thing again
even though the mode is activated (for whatever reason)
I checked on the “map” option again but am still in the ocean and only see china.
I also have other maps and none work
