You will need to know what card it was. Some TomToms use SD memory cards, but you don't give a model (it may well say somewhere near the slot and certainly will do so in the manual).

If it's an SD card or a simlar generic type then is a reliable and good value place to shop for one, or amazon have them also.

How to install a new memory card into a sealed case of a garmin1350

You don't have to open the case. There's a slot in the left side of the unit into which the microSD card fits.

I lost my manual and was curious about the slot on the left side. Looks like a memory chip of some sort can go in there. What is this for? Also when I'm entering in a street address or a point of...

The slot is for a microSD memory card (or an SD card on some models). To add a space between words, press the on-screen key that looks like a sideways square bracket (or underscore with two vertical tabs). It is to the right of the M (at least on the English version of the keypad).

The memory card will let you store more POI and routes than the internal memory can support. Then when full, you can just put in another microSD card for more memory.

The manuals for the Garmin nuvi 205w are available here: .

I hope this helps.

Tomtom Go 500 won't see memory card - big red cross over memory card on screen. Have tried reflowing solder joints on card slot. Have tried cleaning card slot.

Have you tried reformatting your memory card? Does your computer recognize your card if you plug in the card directly to your computer? You can also try a different memory card if the other solution doesn't work. REFORMATTING WILL ERASE THE CONTENTS OF CARD JUST SO YOU KNOW!

I just bought a Garmin 1300, and want to increase its memory with a new card I also purchased. How must I proceed to extract the card that is already in the GPS? I am afraid of doing the wrong thing and...

Usually when you buy a garmin satnav it comes without a memory card. The data is all stored in the internal memory rather than a card. If there's a card in the memory slot press it inwards until it clicks and it will come out. Push in your new card until it clicks.

How instal maps on sd memori card for garmin nuvi 250


Insert the memory card into the memory card slot on Garmin Nuvi 250 GPS device. The memory card slot is located on the left side of the device. Push the card in until it clicks. (If you inserted a memory card that already has pre-installed maps and files, there is no further action required. The device will access the new maps based on the address you enter.)

Connect the Garmin GPS to the computer using the USB cable. The mini-USB connector will need to be inserted into the rear of the Nuvi 250; the larger end is inserted into the computer's USB port.

Locate the computer file that you want to download to the Garmin memory card. The Nuvi 250 is capable of reading JPEG formatted images and GPX formatted Waypoints and other mapping-related files. Right-click on it. Select "Copy."

Select the "Computer" folder from the computer's desktop Start menu. Double-click on the "Removable Disk" drive that represents the Garmin Nuvi.

Right-click in an empty space within the drive and select "Paste." The files have now downloaded to the memory card and will be accessible through the Nuvi 250 menu options.

Good Luck, and do rate the solution if got help

Memory card, how does it work and what for?

The SD card slot is there to allow you to expand the memory of your unit so you can play more music files or store more pictures.

It can also be used to add additional map files to your Nuvi. Like if you wanted a map of France, etc.

There is only so much memory on your Nuvi. The SD card slot allows you to expand the memory.

Your Garmin GPS has an SD card slot. You can use this slot to insert a removeable SD memory card into the unit SD memory cards for used for storage by many portable devices. The most common useage for the GPS is to view pictures taken by a digital camera (which also uses an SD card) with the GPS's picture viewer function.

I am not sure what the ads you are referring to are. Where are you seeing the ads? On the GPS screen? After inserting a SD card into the GPS?

Memory card

Does your computer have a memory card slot? You will need to write\download your music to this card using hardware that can write to the card. Many computers sold today have small slits in the front of the computer for just this purpose. Sliding the card in to the appropriate slot allows the user to write data, songs, onto the card for use elsewhere.

If your computer does not have a card reader\writer, be sure that the Disney device itself can't act as a writer by using a usb cable. If the device does not have a usb port to attach to your computer, you might also consider an external card writer like this one:

Otherwise, you will need to find someone with a card writer to place your music on the card for use in the Disney device.

Tom tom 520 memory card

tt520 do use a specific file format so it is possible that removing any info on the disk first will help, if this is possible do it through a computers card reader then you can see what is on the card and if you want to format it.
