Hi, I have just received my DVD from OctaPC & would like to know how to transfer data from the DVD to either the 760 or sd card or both? Do you transfer all the data or just select what you may need? Thanks in advance, reddust (SMS your phone number & I will call you back, 0421 008505)

If you send info to your 760 you will wipe its memory. Send to an SD card, 4 gig is fine. Just double check the options of where you are sending to before you send. You will need map source to transfer the info.. Michael

" If you send info to your 760 you will wipe its memory. " No it won't

when sending maps eg: gmapsupp.img it will only overwrite any other gmapsupp.img in the unit

Hi Michael, a question if you don't mind. I also have a 901 Eee PC and run an external H/D, every thing work ok after copying the maps to it, but when I copied the maps to a SD card I cannot get it to move automatically to the next map, any ideas please?
