Install New Map Updates COMPLETELY on SD Card - c530

 

Hi, Can you install ALL the new maps on the SD card? I wonder if you could. They say that you will have to put the 48 states in the unit and then put Canada and the Provinces on the SD card. What would happen if you just put everything on the SD card? This way u can still leave the older maps that came with the c530 on it and if need be switch back and forth. Hmmmm...I wonder if this can be done. Has anyone attempted this? Thanks!

maps on the SD card

Should be no reason you can't.Don't they sale them like that on sd cards? Garmin tech did tell me on a past email using a sd card along with data stored on the unit will slow the gps down some and advised me against that.

SD cards are not for updates

I think the SD cards, like Europe, say they are not for map updates, but for adding supplemental maps. I remember reading that when I was deciding whether to get Europe on DVD or SD.

Do you need the old out dated map?

I don't know but I would think you would not want the old outdated map!
