Greetings,

How much memory in a ScanDisk can I add to my nuvi 750. I want to buy map
updates. The Garmin site warns that if there is not enough memory in the
unit only partial maps updates will be loaded.

Thanks in advance for you help and support.

Leigh

I *think* you're asking "how big a memory card should I buy for my
Nüvi?"

For most Nüvi models, Garmin supports cards up to 4GB. (That's specific
wording that means if 8GB doesn't work, they won't help you make it
work, not that it necessarily WON'T work.) Since 4 GB cards don't cost
a whole lot more than 2GB cards or 1GB cards, you might want to start
with a 4GB one. You can always fill up extra space with MP3s...

Not sure where you are getting your "4G" info -

I think the entire subject of SDcards has been discussed in previous
threads.
First - anything about 2GB must be SDHC....
Then... you should be ok up to 16GB as per the Garmin FAQ.

Here's a FAQ from the Garmin website support area -
---
Question: What is the largest Secure Digital (SD) card recommended for my
nuvi or zumo?
Answer:
As long as your nuvi or zumo has the latest version of software, it will be
compatible with all SD and SDHC datacards. While SDHC datacards are
available in a variety of storage sizes and speeds, we only recommend using
a maximum of 16GB SDHC cards.

To download the latest unit software visit our website:
www.garmin.com/webupdater

Note: Depending on the model of your nuvi or zumo it may use either a full
size SD card or a microSD card. If you are not sure which your nuvi
requires, please refer to its documentation.

Congratulations. Your looking stuff up is more current than my memory.

Actually, there are non HC cards at 4GB. This might be useful to owners
of older gear...

Compare these two:
http://www.flash-memory-store.com/qm...-150x-4gb.html
http://www.flash-memory-store.com/4g...e-digital.html

Or read the first paragraph of this:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sd_cards

The first pair just came from my first Google hit; no endorsement or
lack of endorsement of the store is intended.

yeah - there are -
but they are incompatible with everything else in the current tech world,
which is why I would never mention they even existed - or probably ever see
them for sale -

I have a couple lying around, IIRC, and they worked OK for me in
standard devices (cameras, reader).

OTOH, I have switched to SDHC even at 4 GB, so I guess we're really not
far from agreement :-)

Leigh-

Do they mean memory like a ScanDisk, or memory like RAM?

Probably memory like a SanDisk SD or SDHC card...

Fred,

I beleive that they are refering to the total memory in the unit both RAM
and a ScanDisk.
