    Bought and downloaded a map from Garmin. Now what?

    So, I bought a map from Garmin, which had to be downloaded directly onto the device. Now what? Can I copy it from the device for safe-keeping on my computer?

    I found the process to be very frustrating, as there was no option at all to save to computer, and I got some very unhelpful 'error' messages about a file with the same name already existing on the device. Do all Garmin maps have the same file name? If so, it is truly absurd!
