    Hi everyone. I'm planning a trip from Vancouver Island to the Yukon in July. I have Backroads Mapbooks data cards for B.C., Yukon and Alberta. They have a capacity of app 7.5 GB and have app 4.8 GB free space. I have several routes and waypoints that I've saved via my Garmin GPSMAP 66i and Garmin BaseCamp. I'm wondering if I can use the Backroads data in my Garmin DriveSmart 65, and how I'd go about accessing the waypoints and routes. Thanx in advance for any directions.

    Any Routes and Waypoints that are visible in Garmin Basecamp can be sent to your Drivesmart 65 by connecting it to the computer running Basecamp, highlighting the Routes / Waypoints and 'send'ing them to the 65

    It should be possible to use the Backroads Mapbook maps on the 65 by inserting the microSD card into your Drivesmart 65
