Largest size of SD Card for Nuvi 200

 

What is the largest size SD card that will work with my Nuvi 200?

There has been some debate

There has been some debate about that, but I tried a 4GB in my C530 and it seemed to work. But definitely a 2GB or less will.

According to the Garmin KB, the maximum card sizes are: 2xx Series 2GB, 350 2GB, 360 and 370 4GB, 6xx Series 4GB.

BTW, a professional, friendly Garmin tech advised purchase of basic, plain vanilla, cards since the more expensive, faster cards perform no differently "in the unit."

I use a 2GB in my nuvi 660, and with the available internal storage, it seems I have plenty of elbow room.

Cheers.

I have used very little of

I have used very little of my 2GB space on the SD card and I keep everything Garmin related on there. I guess you may fill up using the garmin as your main mp3 player.

In the unit is the key here..I bought one of the SD-HD cards and the transfer rate is faster from the PC to the Card..So when I transfer Music etc to the card it is much faster...but you are right in the unit there is no difference..besides that I can take the card out and use it directly in my camera..

In a card reader or in the nuvi? The tech was clear that there was no advantage whatsoever using the nuvi as the reader/writer.

BTW, HD just means you got a big one. Within the HD class there are faster and not-so-fast products. Is your point that big cards are faster than not-so-big cards?

I believe he was talking about transferring POIs to the SD card

I believe he was taling about transferring the POIS to the SD card. Once the SD card is placed in the GPSr, there is no difference between high speed and low speed cards for normal GPSr usage. However, if you have a lot of POIs to load onto your SD card, it is faster with a high speed card to do the transfer (i.e. POI Loader to Card reader rather than POI loader to SD card in GPSr through USB). Of course, it might depend upon the connection to the Card Reader (USB 1 or 2).

Yes, so if one uses the GPS unit to write data via USB, there is no advantage to "fast" cards. One needs to be using hardware other the GPS & card to benefit from the more expensive media.
