    If you want a fully functional chart it's not possible, there is a way to split a Bc for Mapsource and then send parts to your sd, but you will loose some important features.

    Better to get smaller Bluecharts on different cards:

    Did you verify this?

    Normally a device that accepts 4 GB cards also will recognice 8 GB cards!

    The above information is correct. If your device can use a 4GB card, it can use an 8GB also. Before firmware Version 3.20 [since withdrawn], your 520 was limited to a 2GB SD card formatted in FAT16 [even so, like other Garmin units limited by FAT16, it would have been possible to format a 4GB card to FAT16 to use an image up to the then limit of 2GiB-1byte]. Since V3.20 it has a [theoretical] limit of 8GB card FAT32 and can use >4GiB image file. In fact your unit can probably see an under 4GiB file on even a 32GB SDHC proved the tile limit isn't exceeded [Garmin doesn't make image files that do exceed either the tile or size limit].

    This is in the official changelog from Garmin to V4.00: Added support for SDHC cards, which have capacities greater than 2GB.

    My sincere advice is to not torture yourself tying to reverse engineer this large image so you can then make a smaller image to fit on a 4GB card. Small flash memory costs less than a dollar per gigabyte these days, best just buy an 8GB card 'coz you'll spend that for headache remedies otherwise.
