There are some trails on version 1.73 that I would like to have.  However, I uploaded some waypoints to my Oregon 450, using the 1.72.  Do these waypoints still work with my new mapset?  Will I have to upload them again?  Should I rename 1.73 so that I have both 1.72 and 1.73 on my GPS, as suggested in the FAQ?  How do users normally manage this?  Thanks.

Waypoints are stored completely separately from mapsets in your GPS memory, so you will not overwrite them when you update your maps. I would recommend overwriting your maps and keeping only the most recent version of Northwest Trails loaded.

Thanks.  I am really impressed with the completeness of this mapset.  We were down in Oregon last week.  I was hiking on the Humbug trail.  It is a dinky little trail, so I was surprised to find it on NW Trails.  The trail number is wrong, but that is a minor point.  We are going to Baker Lake next month, and I plan to use NW Trails to guide us across the lake to the Noisy Creek campground on the east side of the lake.
