Loading 128mb worth of maps on a Meridian.....

Recommended Posts

Is this a pretty straight forward procedure with a Meridian? I seem to remember some problems being discussed some time ago with cards of this size. These will be the street maps, not Topo. Does the Magellan software facilitate address searches and point of interest search like the Garmin Metroguide? Thanks.

There does not seem to be any problem with the size of the card...people are reporting using up to 256MB with no problem. Problems *do* seem to enter if using too large a file. Thales advises holding the size of the file down to either 32MB or 64...can't remember which. Searches for streets or POI are quicker and easier with smaller files, too.


You probably need to edit the mapsend.ini file to allow a larger file size...my recollection is that the default is 16MB.


I'm not familiar with MetroGuide, so I'm not sure what to say about facilitated searches...you can do them reasonably easily in MapSend Topo and on the Meridian. Do you want to know something more specific?



Often wrong but seldom in doubt
