Hi - I'm having problems getting my eTrex Vista HCx (with 3.10 firmware) to recognise maps on a 4Gb SDHC card (by Crucial), I thought the latest firmware supported cards over 2Gb? Or am I mistaken? The map itself is only around 200Mb BTW. Thanks

Okay, I contacted Garmin customer support and got this reply:

Quote:
I'm afraid the SDHC card's are not compatible with the etrex series of
handheld GPS. The software update from 2.80-3.00 was to add support for
maps greater than 2 GB. However if you wish to use a larger card with
the unit the card will need to be a standard 4GB SD card and not an SDHC
card. You should be able to use a 2GB card with the unit as this should
be sufficient however a larger card may cause the unit to slow in
general operation, therefore I recommend no larger than a 4GB card.


So basically my 4Gb SDHC card won't work, can you even still get non-SDHC 4GB cards? I think I have a non-SDHC 2Gb card kicking about somewhere, will give that a go...
