I don't have any mp3's loaded on my Nuvi 880, however, I have an 8gb micro SDHC card with my mp3's loaded on to it.
Here's my problem:
When I search by "Artist", I'm getting dual listings for some of the artists, on the card, in the list. For example, I have 28 "Warren Hill" songs on the card and when I search, by Artist for "Warren Hill", I'm getting 2 listings for "Warren Hill", one with 25 songs in one list and one with 3 songs in the other list. All 28 mp3's are in the "same" folder, so I can't understand why I'm getting 2 listings for this artist???
With the 4gb SDHC card on my Nuvi 670, I'm not getting the "dual" artist listings when I search by "artist".
Any help or advice you can offer, will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks for your time.

Just a wild guess here Tailspin. Have you checked the ID3 tags for the tunes showing up as duplicates? Occassionally people will rip mp3's and list the artist both in the song title and in the "artist" section. On a display that can produce a double listing of the artist along with the title of the song. Maybe it's producing a double hit with your search too.
Most mp3 software allows you to check and edit the id3 tags.
For me it ended up being different "Composer" tags for the different songs. If there are any differences in the tags that could be the problem.
For me it's always the ID3 tags. You need to check that the information is identical (other than the track name!) otherwise mp3 players assume it's a diferent album.
