As per 1st post. >>

Garmin Nuvi 1300 & 1400 series
No limit to the number of map files. File extension needs to be .img and should be placed under the Map folder.

Garmin Nuvi 200, 600, 700 series + nuvifone G60
Internal memory (the device itself) - gmapoem.img, gmapprom.img, gmapprom1.img, gmapsupp.img
SD or microSD card - gmapsupp.img

As stated by bro alyem, older series can only contain one map in SD card while newer models can contain multiple maps up to limit of memory.

For older series, you can use multiple SD cards to contain different map sets. Lower capacity SD card cheap, so this is one way to save internal memory.

Bingo :thumbsup:

For older series, you can store multiple maps but each time you want to switch maps you have to find a lappy to switch names as the older series uses only one dedicated map file name for maps in SD card ie.. gmapsupp.img ... very inconvenient :thumbsdown:

So better to use separate SD card.
