    Bought and used my first one this spring (Wisconsin), helped me kill a public-land gobbler near a poorly marked boundary. Very impressed. Bought the Wyoming chip since

    I'm really looking forward to using mine this year. So I have a question.

    Do I just put the chip into my laptop and it will just load the maps in to a file that I can open? Or do I need to download drivers from the website first?

    I have the same question. I was trying to look at my WY chip on my laptop but truthfully I was worried I would do something wrong and erase the chip or something so I didnt try it anymore.

    Just download Garmin base camp. Then insert your chip. Then (when the chip is in the computer) every time you open basecamp, your data/map is right there. And you can also toggle between your map, and Google earth. Click "view" in Garmin BC and at the bottom of that menu click Google earth. It will automatically flip over to Google earth and zoom to where you are on your onyx map at the time.

    Also, onyx has a good video showing you how to make a way point in Google earth, and transfer it over to your chip/map. Kmz files they're called. Fun stuff!!
