    Default Can I put bluecharts on GPSMAP 440?

    I tryed to put a sdcard that had some bluecharts that previousely work on my Oregon to the GPSMAP 440 but its not displaying the charts.
    Have someone been able to succesfully put bluecharts in a sdcard for the GPSMAP 440?
    I guess that its not a issue of the sdcard size because its only 2 gb big and that is the permitted size for the 440.

    I believe it should work.

    You said you used "blucharts" and I'm not sure the 440 will support more than ONE canrt on a card.

    It may also require only a SINGL chart/map at a time and that the chart be named and placed as...
    x:/garmin/gmapsupp.img
    How is you card set up ?

    Have you unlocked the map with the "gimgunlock.exe" tool ?

    I also find it hard to believe the 2gig is the MAX size the 440 will accept. Some charts are well over 3gig in size.

    Which firmware does it run?
    I read [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]:
    Changes made from version 5.30 to 5.40:
    ◦Added support for BlueChart g2 and g2 Vision version 11.5.

    Probably newer ones too
