I have purchased a nuvi 3760 that has a memory slot for a micro SD card.

I have shonky maps and a couple of others on my old nuvi 760 SD card..normal size.

How do I get these onto this damn little card?.........?

Thanks in advance

Hi Bungarra

Ok copy all the data from the big card to a directory on your computer. Then I assume you got the adapter with the micro card that makes it the same size as your old card...you just copy all the data back to your new card. If not then put the new micro card into the nuvi and and connect it to the computer via the cord and then copy the directory that way.
I bought the 3760 the other day. Nice.

Regards

Peter

I have the Nuvi 750 and I use TOPO maps on a SD card. To access TOPO once in the SD card slot I go to MENU/tools / Settings / maps and then select Map info and select the map program I wish to use.
Hope this helps you out.

Hi

Understand how to access the maps on the device or the card in the device..

it is how to get data from the big SD to a small one..however I now understand that it is the adapter I need as neither the desktop nor my laptop has a tiny spot for the micro SD

cheers

If you have a USB "dongle" for Telstra Optus etc. they usually have a micro slot, use that and you don't need a converter.

When plugged in it appears as another drive on your computer.

Hope this helps

You will need an adapter that can take the micro SD card.

Copy the contents of the SD card to your PC, then SD card adapter

Thanks all for the advice...seems like it is the adapter I need.

next question I have Tracks 4Australia on the 760...note on the garmin...not the card....

can I get this off the 760 and onto a card? so as to use on the 3760?

Thanks

Hi Bungarra

Apologies in advance if this is a half arsed answer, but do you have Map Source? You can plug in the old Garmin use Transfer->Receive from Device, then plug in your new unit and Send To Device. I'm assuming this would work between devices, I've had to zap and replace maps on my 500 a few times. BTW have you got Basecamp? It's well worth the $'s.

Cheers

Believe it or not you can also buy Ebay kits that enable you to cut your SD card down to Micro SD card size.
