I'm not so sure if the Nuvi's can accept the huge 8GB SDHC cards. It works fine with the usual 1-2GB microSD or SD cards. Digital Mall selling only RM15 per pc!

Memory size is only 1 aspect of it - processor speed is the other. I know someone who have tried to load the entire globe Bluecharts + lots of country maps and his GPSr just hang .. too much to load. Don't try too load too many maps on a single card to prevent this kind of problem.

IMHO, it is better to use smaller capacity SD cards to load omaps and swap cards for different countries. SD cards are cheap so it is not a matter of cost for these cards. If you want to combine maps, it makes sense if these maps are ones that you can drive a car across borders. If across an ocean or across long distances then it makes sense to use a different SD card.

Bro sokemei27, as a newbie, you are expected to read our wiki section under thread newbie pitstop for a grasp of GPS knowledge and how things work. Then proceed to our General References for application specific knowledge.

Our download section is here : http://www.malsingmaps.com/portal/downloads.php

Yes, even my Nuvi 200 can accept 8GB SDHC cards. Then again it is not the size but practicality that counts. It is better to have several smaller cards to swap for different maps or different countries than one big one. I apply the same philosophy for my camera. Instead of one big card, I use many smaller ones (not too small but a practical 2GB size). If the big card gets lost or spoilt, everything goes. But if I lose one small card, I only lose a part and not all.

In my n200 i use 2GB SD card and inside the card has 8 different country of maps and in my n255W i uses 4GB SDHC card and inside the card has close to 9 different country of maps now.

Whenever i go across the border, i just switch the maps by copy and paste.

Sometimes i bring n200 for travel, load 4GB card to in, it still workable.

Cheers!

Err... Can copy and paste with Nuvi itself???

For me, I went dig out some old memory cards... Currently I got 1 x 32MB and 3 x 128MB... I'm also using personal edition maps... MSM+JW or MFM+JW, depending on where I'm going to... The 32MB one is used to store the MSM NT map...

Btw, Nuvi can also use MMC card... :mrgreen:

I used to do this, but the one issue is you need access to a lappy to do this.

Yes, this can be overcome by pre-planning trips but it is the time you forget and you need it, is when you ... ](*,) :ko: so for me it is now smaller cards with individual maps in it :thumbsup:

yup is pre-planning, i have my lappy go together with me for business trip so just copy and paste it!

Different people has different way of using it.. I use my method and travel across country many times and i find no issue provided that pre-planning is executed!

Well i might implement your method too in future - who knows? people change!
