Ok I asked this last December when it was thought I would be driving from Ohio to Arizona (but didn't) but what do you do when you are making a cross country trip say from Arizona to Ohio? At one time, I had all 50 states loaded on an 8 gb flash card and neither my mpower(s) nor the pk ever saw the maps folder and I could never open the files so I took the folder off so I could use that card for my books. But I am curious do you put all the maps in one folder for such a drive or how is this done?

Peggy,The entire United States would fit on an 8-gig card. This is actually one of the option when purchasing the Sendero GPS package. The setup from Sendero will contain all documentation, home state, the United States broken into three folders. To see the map configuration used by Sendero, see the multiple region folder in the 40docs.zip. It can be found either on you CompactFlash provided by Sendero or at MySendero.com It is recommended to not have the United States broken into no more than two oo three folder and to load only those maps you use most often as access time you be affected.It isn't required that you rename the folder when going to another state. You can just change the spot where the system looks for these map files. For example, my California maps are on the maps folder on the CompactFlash card, but I am planning on traveling to the east coast. I would do the foklowing:O for GPS options M for map and POI folder choose CompactFlash as the drive choose maps2eastas the folder press enter to accept the directoryI will then receive a message stating the amount of maps that were loaded, POIs that were loaded, and user POIs that were loaded.Kevin----- Original Message ----- From: "Peggy Kern" <kernsac@xxxxxxxxxxxxx To: <gps-talkusers@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Date sent: Fri, 20 Jul 2007 23:23:13 -0700 Subject: [gps-talkusers] Re: SD card vs CF cardYou know, as long as we're talking about maps and stuff, I justgot an 8-gigcf card, on which I was thinking of putting the whole U.S. maps.(Will theyall fit?) If they'll all fit, would it work to have the wholecountry on my8-gig card, and if I'm in a different part of the country thanCalifornia,I'd just rename my maps folder to California or something, andthen renamethe folder for whatever state I'd be in to maps, and then renameeverythingwhen I went back to California. Would that work? Or would a big8-gig cfcard slow things down?Peggy http://kernsac.livejournal.com/ ----- Original Message ----- From: "Gil Lutz" <gil@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx To: <gps-talkusers@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Sent: Friday, July 20, 2007 10:15 PM Subject: [gps-talkusers] Re: SD card vs CF cardHi Craig,You can copy your maps folder to the SD card then go to GPSoptions,m for maps and set the drive as SD card and the folder to mapsifthat's the name of your map folder.Hope that helps,GilAt 11:40 PM 7/20/2007, you wrote:A couple of days ago I loaded the Western US on a 2 gig SD chipfor mywife's mPower. The CF card, my wife received the other day withtheprogram on it, had the State of Washington already loaded I then loadedOregon onthat chip as well, works wonderful. The question is, how do youtell theprogram to get its map information from the SD chip, not the CFchip orcan you? We both read through the manual and can't seam to find whatwe'relooking for. I'm sure we have read over it, but could someoneenlightenus. Maybe it's the impossible dream.... The reason she wants to usethe SDchip is that she has books loaded on another CF card and wouldlikeeventually to put that into the PCI slot. I'm assuming here youdon'thave to have the CF card that came with the program, in that slotwhenever youusing the GPS.I also want to commend Sendero on a fantastic job they have donewiththeir instruction for loading the program and getting it up andrunning. Ittook 2 weeks to get the same spot with the Trekker vs 30 minuets timewith theSendero. You have saved another marriage. Well worth the waitof 3.5months to receive the system. I'm as excited about her new GPSas sheis. We love our toys! Craig Phillips__________ NOD32 2410 (20070720) Information __________This message was checked by NOD32 antivirus system. http://www.eset.com
