My eTrex Legend HCx shows the "description" field in the "Setup map" menu where you can select individual map tiles. I set it like this in the template.args file: [...] mapname: 10000058 description: OSM_Berlin_W input-file: 10000058.osm.gz mapname: 10000059 description: OSM_Berlin_O input-file: 10000059.osm.gz [...] In the "Setup map" menu, where you can select the different maps according to the family-ID and/or the basemap, it shows the family-name. I haven't found the area name or the series name anywhere in this unit. I copy the whole gmapsupp.img using an SD card reader.
