    @magic999. Sorry, but your comment makes absolutely no sense to me.

    Ron, maybe you'd find it easier to just dust off that old intel PC you spoke of earlier.

    Provided the [so called] 4 GB card is less than 4096 MiB [it will be under 4000MiB, ~3.9GiB] Windows will allow it to be formatted in FAT16 [it just calls it FAT in the drop-down]. A partition size of more that 2GB is only a problem if used for MS-DOS booting.

    Right click the drive>Format>File System>FAT.

    All 2 GB cards are factory formatted to FAT16, so you won't need to reformat a newly purchased card. 4 GB to 32 GB are FAT32, 64GB and over are exFAT. All can be reformatted to other FATs using either the built-in Windows tool or other free 3rd party software such as EaseUS. My personal opinion is that RMPrepUSB is best used for the internal flash memory of all Garmin devices and any cards used in them for absolute compatibility with the Garmin OS.

    It will be easier for you to use GMAPTool in Windows too, because the win version has a GUI.

    If you are at all uncomfortable about proceeding further with this there's no problem. Someone else may volunteer to test maybe. It's firstly going to involve making a RAW copy of your original CF card data on [preferably] another 2 GB card and testing that in the bike before combining the images. We could maybe try with the 4 GB card formatted to FAT but may have to create a 2GB partition on it to mimic a 2GB card. If that copy CF works normally, we'll then use it for combining the original non-NT and small NT images for further testing. All this is very untested and only based on 'pie-in-the-sky' theory but won't directly involve your original card.

    Let me know if you're willing to go ahead or not.

    Neil, I'm willing. Just bear with me...

    I fired up the old WinXP box, as you suggested. I now have GMAPTool installed. Tried reformatting the 4GB card on the WinXP box- right-click/Format, drop-down only lists FAT32 and exFAT as choices. No FAT16. Tried reformatting anyway, got FAT32, as expected. So...

    I checked the 1GB cards... one formatted as FAT32; the second as FAT16. Stuck the 4GB card in again, and XP reported 831MB free and FAT as the format. So I went for it... I hit format. When done, it was 4GB and FAT16! Weird, or what. When I checked the options again, FAT16 is not there... only FAT32 and exFAT.

    So, now I have a 4GB card formatted to FAT16, and GMAPTool on the WinXP box.

    My next step is to make a copy of the Garmin card. You mentioned RAW copy... any particular method in doing that?

    Try with Roadkil's RAW Copy:

    I haven't used it with dissimilar sized drives before, so i don't know how that will go. If you have a problem, we'll have to create a 2GB partition, but one step at a time.

    Hello Neil, I'm still at it. Just getting my WinXP set up again. Now I'm connected to the internet, and installing the programs I need. Getting all sorts of messages saying my stuff is outdated (XP is 12 years old and no longer supported by MS!).

    Lol, sorry to force you back to the IT stone age. Truthfully, I loved XP with a passion [other than the 64 bit version, it truly sucked for practical purposes]. Skipped Vista, liked 7 and am now a fully-fledged card-carrying fanatical supporter of Win 8.1. I sometimes boot into XP and 7 for fun to remind me how good 8 really is .... Take your time buddy [you might need it].

    You could just try a direct copy of the data onto the other card, but i doubt it'll work because of the possible block-write protection on the original CF as discussed [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]. I'm not even sure making a RAW copy will overcome that problem. This is another good free utility if Roadkil's RAW Copy doesn't do the job:

    Just noticed this thread. It is now 11:30 PM and I'm headed for bed but just installed 2015.2 in my 2006 gl1800. All unlocked. will check more in the morning. I will reread what you are asking for Neil and see if I can help in the morning.

    loaded a 2gb card with 157 maps using mapsource. Had to leave out a couple due to memory limits. Hope this is of help for now.

    I'm sorry but I may not be able to help. If you remember I bricked my original nav unit. So I don't have a garmin/honda licensed mapset to play with in the new unit. I do have the original mapset for the old unit and will see if I can do anything with that.

    Also the POIs do show up on the map and you can locate POIs near you by using the near option in the POI menu. You just can't do a search for POI.

    Again if I can be of help would be glad to.

    @jinxxxxxx, we've got a couple of things going here I think. I finally got another 2GB card yesterday to experiment with...they are hard to get, at least a a decent cost since nobody makes them anymore.

    My current map set on my '06 Wing is 2013.30. I was able to unlock the map set I have and loaded another 2GB card with it. Of course, no POI search, and the map set is outdated. But I'm still trying to locate a newer set.

    links to the 2015.2 maps are posts on this board. I used then last night to update the maps on my 06. FYI i am anal about using the locked maps and generating the keys. Don't ask why I don't use the unlocked maps because I can't answer that. But the 2015.2 maps on this site should work in your 06.
