Hook the Nuvi up to your Computer via USB, then Sync one song from Windows Media player to the SD Card on the Nuvi (it will show up as "Nuvi Memory Card" in WMP) You only need to sync one song and it can already be on the card. This will create the link your Nuvi needs to see the Music. Once you disconnect all your SD music will be available.

I`d like to use the mp3 on my GPS but don`t know how to put music or pics on


You need a standard SD digital memory card (not the newer HC high capacity cards as Magellan does not guarantee compatibility although I did get one to work that was a micro SD card with the full SD adapter). You will need to put your mp3 music files from your PC onto the SD card just as you would your mp3 player; insert the SD card into an SD slot on your computer, laptop or USB adapter and copy the files to the card. After files are saved, put the card into the slot on the right side of the Maestro and then refer to the User Manual (http://www.magellangps.com/support/product.asp) page 64 to see how to play the music. You can play through radio speakers or by using headphones/ear buds with a USB connector.

How do you download music to your gps


You do not download music to the GPS, put music files onto a SD card and then put that card into the GPS. You have to remove the Map SD card to do this so you cannot play music and use the GPS at the same time.

Device not reading sd card loaded music


try putting sd card back into a pc and check that the write protection is turned off. also if it has a write protection switch on the side of it it will need to be off. failing this. you may need to check what format the sd card was formatted in . it will need to be ntfs formatt not fat32. if it is fat32 ,save whats on it re format to ntfs then reload your files. try again.. cheers Phixxer.

Cant get an SD card to play music


Some devices have a maximum 2 GB SD-Card size limit; do these cards you use exceed that size?

Will not let me listen to music stored on sd card


Hi, how dit you format the SD card. It should be formatted as Fat32 before you store music on it. If the card does not showup in the browser there is an issue with the format. In some instances the card could be incompatible with the zumo. So format it first (Fat32), copy some mp3 files to it (id use 128 kbps mp3's to start off with) plug it in and see what happens. If nothing, try a different brand/size card. I use 4GB SDHC card made bij sandisk without issues.
