Something happened to my Geocaching profile on my Montana. It refused to display roads from any map. Possibly caused by an OSM map crash. Even the CN North America map would not display.

Creating a new profile while in Geocaching profile didn't help nor did a call to Garmin help line.

Maps are fine in all other profile, and I rebuilt a Geocaching profile from my Automotive profile.

I got a copy of Seamusblu's Geocaching profile, and it works just fine.

Haven't tracked down the exact error in the Geocaching.gpf file yet, but I know I can, just have to spend some time on it.

Bottom line:
Back up your profiles folder. You can create a folder on your Garmin, or drop a backup on the hard drive of your comp. or put it on a thumb drive. It will save time if something happens to one of your profiles.

I'd say back up your whole machine really. This applies to all GPSr's that attach as external HD.

I've been a computer programmer for 35 years. I'd say backups have saved my job about a half dozen times, and saved me smaller hassles many times. This is good advice for any digital device, including your GPS, SmartPhone, and computer.
