There was some debate regarding the maximum storage capacity for the SD and MicroSD expansion cards.

If you have a nuvi or zumo series, you may use up to a 16GB disk. The StreetPilot series have a maximum capacity of 2GB.

There are 2 types of MicroSD cards :
    MicroSD : has a 2G capacity limit
    MicroSD HC (High Capacity) : from 4G up to 16G

A MicroSD HC device can use both types.

A MicroSD device in not compatible with the MicroSD HC format

Read your unit's documentation.

If it calls for MicroSD don't go for MicroSD HC.

Post SD cards top out at 2GB

An SD-HD card can be larger, but the old "SD" card spec stops at 2GB. If your gizmo says "SD cards" that means 2GB maximum unless you luck out. If the gizmo says "SD-HD" then you should be OK for the larger capacity cards.

Garmin states that Nuvis can take up to 16 gb cards. Whatever you do, do not try to format the card beforehand, particularly if you have a Mac. I tried and the card would not work until I put it in a Canon digital camera. It worked fine after that when I used it with my Nuvi 760.

I use a 1460 and it has no limit in the micro SDHC capacity. Currently I'm using a 4GB card and works like a charm. I highly recommend the 14xx series nuvi.

I'm using a 16GB micro SDHC in my Zumo 660 without problem, but I understand it's important to use a fast memory card if you go for higher capacities or the machines hang. Mines a class 6.

Post Using a 32 gb Class 10 card in Zumo 660...     
Reply with quote

I am using a Sandisk 16gb Class 4 card... Seems to be just fine since I have almost completely loaded it with music and have used it 4 years now... I am hoping to put in a 32 gb Class 10 card and try it because it will be faster. I truly like the variety of tunes on a long road trip...

Has anyone tried a 32 gb card in their Zumo 660 ?

Just tried installing a 32 gb HD card in my Zuma 660, loaded it with 20 gb music mp3's and it took forever to find a song and would not even play it. Put back in my 16 gb hd card with 15 gb music , now works great

As long as the automotive device has the latest version of software, the device can use the maximum card size.
