Help viewing maps in Garmin Nuvi 550

I have run into a problem viewing maps in my garmin nuvi . I suspect I am doing something stupid here but can't seem to figure it out. I have an sd card installed where I have stored additional maps. I created a folder on the card to keep my disabled maps and I move the map I want to use into the gpx folder on the sd card. I just changed maps to my backroads map and put it in the gpx folder and have the file named gsuppmap. When I go to the map info page on the device I am only seeing the base North american roads map and not seeing the backroads map that is on the sd card.

Any ideas ?

Leaving for a trip in a couple of days so I am desperate.

I figured it out , stupid as I expected. I moved the gmapsupp file to the gpx folder on the sd card not the root directory where it needs to be to be recognized by the nuvi.
