    Yes you can. I have used 4gig in the 300 series without issue and can't speak for larger sizes cards.

    Maximum Map Size On SD Card

    Does anyone know the maximum map size or number of map files that will work on a SD card. I have a 4gb card that I've had the whole of CN Europe on and CN North America at seperate times and I've tried them combined in Mapsource and also GMaptool but when it transfers as one image it doesn't show up in map info on my device. This is on a Nuvi 360. Total map size according to Mapsource is 3173.8 MB consisting of 437 maps. Is this overdoing it a bit or is there something else I'm doing wrong?
    Any help or advice appreciated.

    i think you will have to put two .img files on your sd card and rename them to gmapsupp.img then select that file from your unit

    I read somewhere that 2Gb is the largest file size supported by the OS.

    Re: Maximum Map Size On SD Card

    Thanks to both of you for your replies. I just made a map image from half of Europe and half of North America and it works fine so I think it's got to be something to do with the size of the file. Probably just trying to be too greedy.
    Regards

    Re: Maximum Map Size On SD Card

    Do you have the latest firmware on your nuvi 360?
    A firmware update may allow the use of files up to 4GB.

    I've used MapSource to create gmapsupp.img files that are a little under 4GB and contain several mapsets.
    They work fine with an 8GB SD card when used with my nuvi 775T, nuvi 255W.
    The same gmapsupp.img file worked fine with a 4GB microSD card when used with my eTrex vista HCx.

    It is to do with the FAT. Cards formated FAT16 have a maximum filesize of 2Gb. Cards formated FAT32 have a maximum filesize of just under 4Gb.

    Re: Maximum Map Size On SD Card

    Thanks again for your replies. I believe I have the latest firmware Version 5.20 and I've done as suggested and reformatted the card to Fat 32 but it still doesn't see a large map file.
    I'll just have to use different SD cards which isn't a problem.
    Regards

    On my 60csx the number of map segments can not be greater than 2025 if the map is built with mapsource. Also no larger than 4 gigs. Also you came put two different maps on the same sd card you must select witch one to use in you units settings menu.
