            Oregon, 8gb sd card, and map segments

            Hi all,

            I've just gotten myself an 8gb card for my Oregon 550, however the unit refuses to see anything on the card - I've made the \Garmin subfolder and checked that it's formatted as Fat32, and none of my files are greater than 4gb (the largest is 1.3). Any ideas ?

            Also, assuming I do manage to get this working, or have to get a 4gb card, I've a question about map segments. I've read this on another thread ... "You only have to make sure that the amount of all maptiles (interior and sd-memory together) does not exceed 3500."

            Can I make sure that the amount doesn't exceed 3500 simply by disabling and enabling maps as required through Setup, or will I have to actually delete files or rename them to something other than .img ? I'm guessing disabling them will work. Also, I'm sure this is a newbie question, but just how do I find how many maptiles the maps have ?

            Thanks in advance for any tips, this is a wonderful forum for this sort of info, I've learned loads so far !

              I can confirm that an 8Gb micro SDHC card works on my Oregon 400.

              Do you have the latest software/firmware for the gps?

              Have you used the windows 'safely remove hardware', or at least wait a couple of minutes after copying files to the card before disconnectiong?

                  My 550T will shut down/crash from time to time without obvious reason. I don't know if there is any hardware issue. I assume it's because I loaded the city navigator North America 2014.30 downloaded from here. Anyone has similar issue?

                    camera bug with V6.40, while taking a picture, quickly press review button(before the new picture popup), then return to the camera mode from review. The camera will be disabled and you cannot go back to the main menu.
