    garmin 62s

    Hi i have just purchased a garmin 62s second hand off trade me.
    it turned up and was in good condition like was said so very happy.

    The main reason i am starting this thread is i need help, it came with topo maps on sd
    and the problem i have is i cannot get it to show me the contour lines on the maps.

    this is one of the main reasons i bought this.

    can anyone help explain what i need to do to show these lines?
    Thanks

    got me stuffed if your topo is enabled then you should have contour lines. i cant find any other setting that would effect the contour lines.

    Hi just a quick update, when i went hunting today with a mate i borrowed his sd card with topo maps on it, i inserted it but still no lines.
    I then adjusted the shaded relief and disabled a fiew other maps had a general play and the lines then came up!!
    I have no idea what i did exactly because i had only done things i had previously tried.
    I then inserted my sd card and everything worked exactly the way it should!?

    So on the down side i don't how i fixed it
    On the up side its now fixed and working
    Josh, mucko and Scouser like this.

    Go to Garmin site support and download a manual.
    The GPSs have functions that the quickstart guide doesnt cover.
    Cheers
