Garmin Edge 520 – reinstall factory base map?
« on: March 27, 2018, 10:48:22 am »
Is there a way to reinstall the original base map on an Edge 520 that had its memory overwritten with an open-source map for an area that is no longer of interest? As I understand it, the map file is called gmapbmap.img.

And a related question: when this device is connected as an external storage device to my Mac, the latter says it has 4.82 GB of “available” storage space. I understood the Garmin Edge 520 had barely 100 MB of storage space so this confuses me. Is it something to do with the MS-DOS (FAT16) format?

I still don’t know why the reported space is so large, but I found a base map (albeit perhaps a slightly outdated version, not that it matters) here. It works.
