I might be on to something...

I'll just say what happened with your maps that I downloaded today.

1. Copied gmapsupp_mkgmap.img to an SD card and put it in my eTrex 30: 
didn't work.

2. Copied gmapsupp_mapsource.img to SD card: also didn't work !?

3. Disabled the map (the mapsource generated one)

3a. Tried to search with the map disabled - crashed. (don't suppose
this is relevent but mentioned for completeness).

4. Enabled the map (the mapsource generated one) - now works!

So it seems like there is some memory or caching of previous maps
which is fixed by disabling & enabling the map.

When I was trying the mkgmap maps, I was also messing about disabling
and enabling the basemaps and I suspect that was why it was eventually

I'm about to investigate further with mkgmap map now.
