    Ok, it's maybe nit-picking to point it out again, but most devices can in fact use a card LARGER than what the Garmin guidelines say, however the formatting is crucial as is the number of maps and for outdoor units the number of tiles loaded. Even some of the most recent models like nuviCam need to have SDXC cards reformatted to FAT32. VIRB range are the only units that i'm aware of for sure that can use exFAT presently. From the middle link above:
    SD or SDXC (eXtended Capacity, which is standard for 64GB) cards must be formatted as FAT32.
    The more map info the device has to load the longer the boot time. Large image files [up to the 4GiB limit] with many tiles may have slower drawing times when they're in use. Total tile limits and map FIDs limits are easily exceeded, the first particularly so for Outdoor devices which have varying tile [map segment] limits:
    Code:

    Perversely Automotive devices have no such tile number limits. Interesting that Garmin doesn't have that restriction for the devices less likely to be affected by it.

    Oregon 6x0 has a maximum tile number of ~4000, but this includes tiles in preloaded maps so in the 't' models the OEM Topo on-board will reduce that potentially to ~3500 according to Garmin.

    In the real world a 16GB map card is more than sufficient for most units whether outdoor, auto or marine. Therefore much of the above info is more interesting than useful, but it is useful for troubleshooting when using a large card.

    Default how to separate raster and vectorial part of an .img ?

    @ Mapperoni in post #9, I am wondering if it is possible to export from these maps, the raster part to jnx, and the vectorial part to vectorial and routable img. Maybe it's possible with MPC ?

    Why would you want to convert these maps to jnx?
    You could delete the vectorial part and use City Navigator instead but then you will not be able to use both at the same time, which is a nice feature.
    I think these maps are just fine as they are, the only downside is the very low jpg quality with lots of artefacts.

    It's just for activate-deactivate the raster side, and see all the country seamlessly. This way, vector layer above raster are just fine.

    Thanks so much for this collection, before this i was manually converting my memory map file to JNX which was very time consuming!

    Sorry if this is a simple question, but I'm new to all this and still getting to grips with a GPS device too.

    Is it as simple as extracting all the files from the RAR archives, dragging them to a micro SD and placing them in my Garmin GPS device?

    Will they just work as is or is there more to this?

    Thanks in advance.

    In that case, this is a good place to start: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    The South Scotland map extends from Prestwick airport (South of Glasgow) to North of Stonehaven.
    The North Scotland map is for all parts North of that, with no overlap.
