    Definitely! Class 6 SHDC cards will work with any device smoothly with no lag.

    Of course your bootloader must be version 5.5012 or higher for SHDC cards to be read. Recommended for GO models are bootloader versions: 5.5229, 5.5256 or 5.5259

    Having tried various navcores with a 530, I would recommend navcore SE 9004.1804 with a bootloader of 5.5229.
    It recognises all SD cards and all functions of the 950 model work also.
    I also use it on my 730 as well with no problems.

    macapaca,
    bass junkie says in his first post that he wants to load truck maps on his GO devices, so he'll need a truck navcore, the latest to my knowledge being the one he tried, 8.396.

    bass junkie, you could also try the other truck navcores: 8.395, 8.393, 8.392, 8.391 and 8.390

    Sorry to all for missing the point, or for any wrong advise.
