Transfering Garmin SD map to unit?

I searched and couldn't find exactly what I was looking for so I apologize if this is 205...


I have a Montana 650T, I purchased the City Navigator NT on a micro SD card. Is there a way to transfer/unlock the CN maps to the units memory so I can put a larger SD card in the unit for other files and pictures??

The code is locked to the Card which is why you can move the µSD Card between devices.

You realize you can't upgrade or buy Lifetime Updates for the download (or sd) versions? I think of all the options, DVD, SD, Download, the download is the least desirable.

IMHO.

Yeah I am aware of that.....I'm not that stressed about it. Would have gone DVD but I didn't have time to wait for it to be shipped. Its all good....
