1. Some devices will not be able to read a file that is larger than 2GBs but are able to read an SD card larger than 2GBs. For more info see http://www.poi-factory.com/node/42561
2 Currently MapSource and MapInstall will only allow you to send a maximum of 4GB of map data at a time. This means that although there is no limit to the number of map segments a device can receive or read, you may still only send up to 4GB of data at any one time.
