    Hi.....i'm currently running an unbranded 8gb class 10 micro sd card in my Garmin Camper 760LMT-D and wondered if this is sufficient size? It seems a bit slow and wondered if i'd best invest in a quality branded make? What brand make do other users suggest and also is 8gb adequate or should i install a 16gb card?

    It is very unlikely you will see any benefit in replacing your microSD card, high speed versions are required for tasks like recording high definition video, reading stored maps does not require this speed. If the unit appears to be 'slow' it will be down to the CPU power or the card reader interface, nether if which you can fix by replacing the microSD

    As for card size, you would be able to store multiple maps on 8GB so again there would be no point in doubling the capacity, i'm guessing the maps you require currently fit on the existing card

    Nuvi.....yes they do fit and i assume any updates simply overwrite the existing files....or does the card need a clean format? There is 3.75gb spare on card but is asking for a complete install of mapping at the moment.

    It will overwrite, it will also inform you if there is insufficient space before starting the download

    Just tried this card and it's loaded the updates on but not enough room for full Europe mapping. According to Garmin site they say the 760 Camper will take a max card of 32gb. Is 16gb enough or am i better off getting a 32gb?
