Why cant I download my waypoint data to a 2 GB SD card. My Global map 5000c does not recognise the 2GB SD card. Do I need MMC/SD. Can I place the sd card in the slot beside the chart card ?. Thanks
You can place the SD card into the slot beside the chart card.
With the SD card in the GlobalMap unit by itself (take the chart card out), press MENU twice and
choose BROWSE FILES. Does the unit indicate that an SD card is
present? If yes, the card is working fine in that slot. Try the same thing in the other slot. If it only recognizes the SD card in one of the slots, the other slot is bad and probably won't work with any card. If the card is recognized in the BROWSE FILES menu, but the data that is on the card is not working, there could be compatibility issues with the data and the GlobalMap 5000.
Make sure the GlobalMap 5000 has the latest software update from
http://www.lowrance.com/en/Products/Legacy-Products/GlobalMap-5000C/Downloads/GlobalMap-5000C-Software-Update-180/. You might need to get a different, smaller capacity card since your 2GB is not working.
If the 2GB SD card still isn't recognized in the BROWSE FILES menu after the update, the GlobalMap 5000 is not going to work with that 2GB card. You will want to get a different card. I suggest 1GB and smaller.
If this doesn't help, please let me know some more details. Is the 2GB SD card recognized in the BROWSE FILES menu. What are you seeing that makes you determine it does not recognize this card? What files are currently on this card? What kind of card is it (brand, model).
