Question about Magellan Meridian Platinum GPS Receiver
Does the sd card size matter? Do I format the sd card as fat or fat? 32. I have tried many sd cards from 64 md to 128 md. Is the file type an .img file?
You do not need to screw with an SD card, they are formated to take whatever data you send to them, but in your case check by reading the card to see what is on it BEFORE you put it in the GPS. It may have junk files on it, thus there is no room, unless of course you try to load to much data, THERE IS A LIMIT, suggest you read the GPS manual, and see what the limit of the size of the card is for that GPS, yes there is a limit!

Start up a computer with
Windows XP, Vista, or Windows 7. Insert the SD card into an external memory
card reader or into the computer's built in card reader. If it the first time a
SD card has been inserted into the computer, Windows will recognize the SD card
and automatically install drivers to read the memory card.
Go to the computer
view by clicking on the windows start menu icon in the bottom right corner of
the computer. In Windows 7 and Vista click "Computer". In Windows XP

Right click on the

the drive will appear. Click on "Format" to bring up the formatting
Select the type of
formatting (also known as file system format). In Windows XP or Vista there are
several choices including FAT, FAT 32, and NTFS. In Windows 7 there is an added
choice called exFAT formatting. This is an improved FAT formatting type with improved
meta data capabilities. Choose the formatting type, name if the drive if
desired, check or uncheck the "quick format" option, and press the
"Start" button. When the SD card format is
complete Windows will provide a notification.
