mini SD limit?
I keep hearing people using 2GB cards but I have seen 4GB cards.
I think you are referring to SD cards, not Mini-SD cards which are slightly different beasties. The largest Mini-SD cards that I am aware of are 2gb. I could be wrong though.
I think they were referring to miniSD which is what the specs (at least, according to PhoneScoop) say it has and they wanted know what the max size card that could be used with this device which might be different than the largest size of miniSD that is made. Does anyone know the answer?
However, ALL SD is moving to a "new" standard that moves it away from FAT16 to a FAT32 standard. (FAT16 only allows 2gig file handling).
The FAT32 will allow SD/minSD/microSD to go to 4gb, 8gb, 16gb, even 32gb capacities.
Some of these are already available (ie: 4gb miniSD can be found).
The real question is whether the device can read them. As they're the same size it may simply entail a firmware update. But it is likely many present device's will not allow for the use of 4gb.
Which is a shame as I'd like to get one for my 6700 which I now use as my GPS. This would allow me to carry all the maps of the U.S. (approx 2gigs) plus have 2gigs for programs and media!
Now I want a 4gb!
