Magellan SD card


I have a Magellan Roadmate 1200....all of the maps and POI are on a 1 GB SD card....the card has reached can I transfer that data to a 2GB SD card that I order to free up space for more POI's?
Unfortunately, simply copy - n - paste to the new card does not work...Roadmate does not recognize the new card??????

Hidden files

I use Linux' "xcopy" when I copy items off devices. Copy and paste does not always pick up hidden file. So, if there is a Windows equivalent of "xcopy" why don't you give that a try?

Or you could try calling Magellan customer service to see if there is a workaround. There may be a hardware limitation on the device.

Another Way

Assuming that your GPS recognizes 2GB SD card, you might want to try disk cloning software such as Norton Ghost, Acronis TrueImage etc. to clone the 2 cards. There's a free cloning software at It's called DriveImage XML.

Note: I've never cloned flash disks. Cloning software works well on hard disks. I'm assuming that cloning software works on flash disks but I may be wrong. Worth a shot though especially if it's free.
