bro minthiam,

If you are asking about the Papago R5800, then it is in the wrong thread! This is the 'Garmin' thread. Having said that, you can put as many maps as you like, provided that they are in seperate folders under \Maps. Each folder would have 27 files.

Bro Zamad, I think he meant for his GMXT Symbian S60 in his Nokia5800.

Bro Minthiam, use GMapTool to combine maps, so that 1 x GMAPSUPP.IMG (or GMAPPROM.IMG or GMAPSUP2.IMG) can contain more than 1 mapset. Please search the forum for its usage.

Oh! #-o Anyway, I would prefer slightly longer sentences to avoid ambiguity. :prayer:

If Nuvi is already installed with MFM map in internal memory, remove that one first before using another MFM map version in SD card.

A Garmin device with internal memory would at least support GMAPSUPP.IMG and GMAPPROM.IMG. You can also try whether it supports GMAPPROM1.IMG as well. And if it accepts a data card, that's another GMAPSUPP.IMG supported in the card.
