    Default Multiple map files on microSD for zumo 220

    Is the zumo 220 capable of recognising multiple map files on a microSD and if so, would that be in the folder Garmin or in the folder Map?

    Probably, because it has .System in it's internal file structure doesn't it? So i don't think you're stuck with just gmapsupp.img in SD's Garmin folder and can use 'any_name'.img in Map root folder on it.

    zumo220 is closely related hardware to nuvi5x0 [5x0 is just w/o BT] but i'm not gonna convert my [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] to validate your not wanting to bother to try it yourself [nuvi500 itself doesn't have .System]...

    They're a fairly resourceful lot in NZ usually.

    Cheers, mate. The unit is not mine but from a friend in the US who is not very computer savvy. I might as well do it right the first time, rather than asking him to change the folder name.

    Yeah i figured that but was looking for a serious bite back. I guess you've found a bottle of Phenergan left over from when your kids were little so feeling quite mellow then ..... You've disappointed me [again]

    If no one else replies to confirm it, let me know and i'll covert the 500 if you like to be sure but i think the presence of .System would be a good indication. Also in zumo fw there's reference 'NMaps' which isn't in nuvi 500 [search in hex for 4E * 4D * 61 * 70 * 73 * [where * is wildcard], or plain text search N.M.a.p.s.]. Get him to print and fax you a copy of his GarminDevice.xml if he can't use email [haha]. If you think he can handle it get him to open it and search for <Name>NMaps</Name><File><Specification><Identifier>IMG</Identifier></Specification><Location><Path>Map</Path>, or even just 'NMaps'. It's not in the 500's xml of course but should be in 220's.
