Oregon 450 SD card
« on: January 13, 2011, 04:12:53 AM »
It`s Great to have sites like this.I just bought a Oregon 450,so I`m still in the learning mode with it.I see the recommended SD card is 4GB.Can I use a 8GB SDHC MICRO card? Besides downloading a map to it.I would also like to load a few picture on it also.I don`t want to buy an 8GB SDHC card and not be able to use it.

Are you going to get a BirdsEye subscription? If so, get the biggest card you can afford. I am using a 16GB card in my Oregon 400t with no problems. It's completely full with BirdsEye imagery. Would like to get a 32GB card but have seen conflicting info as to whether it would work.

All I can say is that my 16GB card works fine in my 400t. I wouldn't expect you to have any problems with an 8GB card. But if you don't plan to use BirdsEye, it's probably larger than you will need.

Hello PineStump! I use a 16GB Patriot SD in my 550t and an 8GB Patriot SD in my 450, and have had zero issues with either!

Yes definitely, because there is no such thing as a 16GB SD card (you will have to use SDHC).   ;D
