    Garmin 510 Custom Maps?

    Any one figured out how to get the custom maps to work in the 510? I followed the Google Earth directions and placed the KMZ file in the "CustomMaps" directory, however the device rejects this file. Can anyone post a link to instructions or list them here?

    is there a "new files" folder? On the 800, you have to put new files there or it ignores them

    Maps?

    Use gpx or tcx files (not kml).

    Note that if you plan on following the route on the 510, you're likely to hit a bug where it drops data points on your trip, shorting you of mileage. \

    This bug hit me a few weeks ago and the guys in the Garmin Connect forums tracked it down. https://forums.garmin.com/showthread...-other-10-73mi
