Ah ok, you didn't download the .img file directly then.  I'll have a go with that.

Edit:  Done that but it still doesn't give me the NZ Topo Addon ... was that got through this site or another?

Thanks for sending me the file you were using.  I've loaded it to my Etrex 20 and PC and I now get contours etc showing on both my PC and on my Etrex 20, so the question is why aren't you seeing contours on your Etrex 20?  Is it possible you have too many maps loaded so have exceeded the map segments limit?  If you have a lot of maps loaded try removing some to see if that makes any difference.

That is highly likely.  I have a large SD card and it holds ever map I have ever had including Birdseye and Kompass tiles.  I will try that

Well I stripped out a Gig or two of maps until there was only the NZ files and the gmapsupp file left and still no contours etc.

Wonder if there's a setting on your etrex somewhere.  Anyway too late now, enjoy your trip.  When you're back I could send you my file that displays ok on mine to see what happens
