There are limits on the capacity of SD / Micro SD (SDHC) cards as well as in the number of map tiles for use in the device:
The unit is reading from the memory card up to 4GB of map files. Is the map bigger than 4GB the unit cannot read the maps. Any further capacity on the SD card, depending on the device, can be used for other maps, pictures, MP3 files and track logs. If the map on the memory card contains more than 2025 map tiles, the device cannot read the data, even if the map size is less than 4GB.
