I have a chance to purchase a 128MB card at the Futre Shop here in Canada for $49.99.

What do you guys think would be a better idea.

Two 128's with Metro Guide CanadaV4 (MAP TOOLS)on one and North American City Navigator V5(MAPTOOLS) on the other.

Or one 256MB card and install both Metro Guide CanadaV4 & North American City Navigator V5, (MAP TOOLS)?

Sandisk 256 MB Compact Flash Card is on sale for $64.99.

go for broke, bigger is better. One less item to carry and keep track of. Got a 2 GB myself, did not want to be bothered to set up a trip everytime to travel.

GL03.
Did you leave all your Routes in the program?
Also do you have ALL your MAP TOOLING done and left on the 2610.

Then you can just plunk in whatever city, address, or state you want to go too.

I'm just starting to get this thing figured out.

I don't see how you are going to do this. I haver a 512 MB card and it will not come close to holding all the USA maps, in fact it takes almost 2 GIG. to hold the complete Navigator V5. Maybe I am not understanding your question, but get as much memory as you can. :wink:

It looks like you should have at least 512mb.
Tonight I tried loading the east coast for my friend who is a trucker and it was over 380mb.
We finally got it down too 116mb.
I had to cut out a lot of the map tooling.
So in the next few days I have to find a good buy on a couple of 512mb or larger Compact Disks.

The more I play with this 2610, the more it amazes me. :D

I found a couple of 1mb cards.
I have never bought or looked into ebay so am a little timid and confused as what to do.
Just may have to investigate a little more.

Don,
After checking every possibilty I decided to bite the bullet and
bought a 2gig FC. Loaded all the states and Canada on it, just
waiting for the weather to break so I can use it.
