Hello, I am new to using a GPS device and a total rookie. I'm thinking I should of just bought a device with maps installed but decided I will give it a shot to learn.   I'm basically confused as to how to install the maps on my device. Do I need to install on an SD mini or does my onboard memory have enough space to handle the maps. Is there just one map or many?  I downloaded the program no problem but don't understand the file structure.  Do I need Map Manager or Base Camp from Garmin?  When I plug in the Garmin device it creates a drive - do I just drag and drop all the files installed by Northwest Topos onto the device? Basically I am looking for step by step instructions. ie.Download  Garmin Base Camp, turn GPS on plug into PC.  Real simple instructions.  Any help is much appreciated.  Thanks in advance
