Loss of Mapsource detail

Edit: 10 minutes after posting: Found it! Had 'Show GPS Map Detail' turned off. Duh. Thanks for looking anyway.

Got a 2610, and Mapsource City Navigator Europe V8. About 18 months old, I think.

Opened Mapsource today for the first time for a few weeks, to find that I cannot get the level of detail on maps that I could get previously. No matter what zoom I apply (100 miles, 5 miles, 200ft etc etc) or what level of detail I specify (low, medium, highest etc), small roads simply do not appear. Small settlements - such as the village where I live! - appear as named dots in the middle of void, where previously the various small roads leading to the settlements appeared.

I've checked various Preferences and settings, and don't think I've done anything stupid. An ever present possibility though....

Any ideas, please?

Pretty soon I knew the tune,
And we sat and sang under the Moon

Sounds like you're looking at your base map set that comes with the system by default, and not at the map set you pay extra money for.

But that's all I got, don't know how that could've happened.

EZ to do.

I had that happen to me once! Been doing this a long time but it only takes one brain fart to screw things up.

I have an older riding friend who is fairly new to GPS and not overly computer wise call twice with a similar problem. His MapSource maps on his computer showed absolutely no detail, only a grid nothing more. I thought about it a little and suggested he zoom out a lot like to the 100mi scale. Sure enough he was centered in the middle of the Pacific Ocean!
