The two that are hardwired to the bike went dark on me somewhere near Cannon Falls last night. This is the first time I've have a Garmin unit fail, though in reality it prolly wasn't the units themselves but a fuse or wiring failure upstream. The Nuvi's weren't intended as back ups (I just wanted to enter the tag waypoint.), but they turned out to be good to have along.

But for this historical marker, I'm not sure anyone really cares whether or not Wasioja exists.

In particular, I build the map file for my garmin with this website.

Select the tiles you want (can be time consuming) then it renders them all together in one large easy to install file.

Open source is for IT geeks.

I found that location in basecamp in but a moment or two.

No doubt I'm wrong to be using basecamp.

You can use any maps you like in Basecamp. I'm on a Mac, but choose from whatever you have installed under the Maps menu.

Enough chatter about maps, where's our new tag? Are we going to have to wait 23.9999 hours for a scooter tag in NE?
