    No card onboard

    Ordered a new battery (it is dead)

    Having a time trying to figure out if there is a way to update the maps.

    Interfacing with Garmin webpage I was able to update the firmware but not the maps

    Can I load the latest maps on a card and does anyone know the biggest/cheapest card it will take?

    Thanks in advance

    Same unit I currently have.
    Garmin does not support this unit anymore as far as upgrading the pre-installed maps.
    You can get a memory stick for your unit, available online, the largest one you can get is a 512 megabyte.
    This GPS does not take the more common style SD memory cards. That being said with the 512mb memory stick you can still load maps your choice on there.
