    I tried the bit of cardboard trick yesterday, but no better
    Without wishing to sound like the computer thicko (that I obviously am!) how do you go about transferring stuff from one card to another? scratch

    You need to transfer the entire contents of the card (not the contents from the unit.
    It should just be a map folder. 2.1g or similar size.
    If you get stuck send me a text and I will ring u this evening and talk you thru it.

    When I buy a card tomorrow, does a better card give better reliability??
