Where has my map (tiles) gone?

a)I tend to use mapsource for selecting tiles and then send them to my Etrex 30

but upon inspection of the etrex 30 I notice all I see is the following


Should I create a garmin folder as hitherto the workflow I had for each ride consists of the above (a) and it seems to work.

Any  guidance appreciated

That's normal for BaseCamp, it doesn't actually show all of the folders on the Etrex. And its only lists maps on the Etrex if they are specifically set as visible for Basecamp.

If you look in My Computer, you can see what files and folders are actually on the Etrex. Though it doesn't really matter anyway, you can just use Basecamp for loading everything, and it will put it in the right place.
