    What are the options for these: SD Card for Zumo 220 Central America & South America. I am headed back to Central America in January and would like a detailed card. The Garmin Card only has Costa Rica and Panama. I already have a Mexico Card. Thanks!

    Look at Bici maps.
    They are offering the Mexico/ Central America
    download at a good price.
    I used the Mexico maps from them on a two month ride
    last year.
    They worked fine, with decent auto routing.

    A question about the Garmin South America NT download to the SD card
    in my Nuvi 550.

    Garmins site says ; Minimum Requirements

    The download process requires you to install the free Garmin Communicator Plugin on your computer so we can communicate with your device. Note: The download is installed directly to your device or microSD/SD card and is not accessible on the computer.

    So does that mean that I will not be able to build routes in Mapsource on my computer and download them them to the GPS ?

    YES, that IS what they mean. If you want Maps on your computer, buy the DVD. If you need/want to move your maps from GPS to GPS then buy the µSD Card version and then use BaseCamp. With your GPS connected, BaseCamp will use the maps on your GPS.

    Cheers,
