    I use a program called mapselect.exe:
    Allows you to select and rename multiple maps. Disadvantage is that you need a Windows PC to run the program. Id doesnt run on the Garmin device. TomTom has a much cleaner solution: you just select one of many maps stored.

    What is simpler than put your anyname.img in a folder named Map in sd? Every nuvi produced since 2011 accept this
    In outdoors:SD/Garmin/anyname.img.

    Why do you need rename multiple maps on device? In any case you upload map with PC help. This program only for those who do not rename maps itself with keyboard - it's just a manager. In Garmin device you only check or uncheck a special box against map name then - what may be cleaner and easier???

    What Garmin model you have?

    In my Etrex 30 I can have as many map images I want, as long as its a garmin image with img extension. it's not necessary to name them gmapsupp.img, you can use descriptive name as long as you keep an img extension

    @mbibt
    True .. but only up to certain points which most users probably won't encounter. Firstly, the individual *.img files need to be under 4GiB to satisfy the FAT32 file size limit (for FAT 16 that's 2Gib minus 1 byte). Then there is the amount of individual tiles that the unit can handle, in old models that's 2025, but new units can handle in excess of 4000 tiles. Neither the 4GiB or tile limitations are likely to be reached by most users with 'normal' maps.

    The big stopper is usually the amount of individual MapIds which i think is around 16 or thereabouts. So if you were to load up a big card, say 32GiB, with lots of different small maps then not all will be seen by the unit.

    @IGNATRON
    Point taken. A lot of the earlier info is quite misleading [wrong or simply out of date]. When i get time i'll do a summary for current situation for the common devices' usage of maps on SD/microSD and put a link in Post #1.

    When threads get as long as this one, i find it helpful to read the first page or so, skip to the last page and then work forwards & backwards until you get the relevant info [a bit like building a bridge, but hopefully you can stop before you meet in the middle, lol!]. Thanks for your constructive comment.
