    Default Multiple maps on microSD for nuvi 50?

    Is it possible to store multiple maps (without the use of the 'join' feature in GMapTool) on microSD for use in a nüvi 50 like it is done on (for instance) nüvi 1xxx? I have not been able to find this info in the tutorial section.

    As for the gmap3d.img files for those maps... do they also work from the SD:\Map folder, or do they go into the SD:\Garmin folder? If more than one map has a gmap3d.img file, can I rename those too?

    On my nüvi 1490 I can only get the gmap3d.img file to work from the SD:\Garmin folder, not the SD:\Map folder, hence the question.

    Sorry, you are right. I was mixed up with the JCV files. Those I can only get to work when I put them in the \Garmin\JCV folder, not in the \Map\JCV folder... Does that apply to the nüvi 50 as well? Sorry for the confusion.

    Yes you are correct.
