    Garmin MicroSD Card

    Those with a Garmin, I have question. On Garmin's website, they indicate a MicroSD card with adaptor. If you need to add a MicroSD card, do you have to purchase it through Garmin? Or, can you purchase an MicroSD card from the local electronic store.

    edit: FYI, this is for a Nuvi 1390 in my car.

    Thanks

    I bought some 4gb cards for digital cameras at school and had an extra. I put the extra into my 60csx and it works fine. SD is SD.

    Some older Garmins do not accept microSD"HC" cards. "HC" (high capacity) cards start at 4GB up to 32GB.

    Try to get a faster/the fastest card with a higher speed class rating. This makes find/search and map repaints faster.

    Garmin says one thing, but real world is different. I've been using 16GB class 10 cards in my 660 and 665 since I bought the devices. No issues.
