I am having trouble getting pocket queries to load on my Colorado 300 using my Mac. Does anyone have advice on which program to use and how it is done?

I don't have a mac so I can't say with 100% accuracy, but on a PC with the Colorado/Oregon series it is basically a drag and drop type thing. Basically I save the .GPX files on my PC where I can find them, then open the Garmin folder on the GPS, then the GPX folder within the Garmin folder and drag the GPX files over to that folder. The only other thing I can think of is if you have the "spanner" mode going on the GPS, where it asks you what you want to do with the USB device, I can't remember the exact question, I just know that to get it to see the GPS as a "drive" with folders you answer Yes on the GPS. I would think it is similar for a Mac, but I don't know for sure. You might look on Garmin's website as far GPX files and Mac's for additional help.
