Garmin Montana 600 Questions and Answers
Question: I have a Garmin Montana 600 with a microSD card contains Bluechart g2 Large of the whole of the U.K.
I can see one card getting lost whilst changing over otherwise! I would also consider a smaller area for the land map if it could be catered within the Montana at the same time. Are there other 25k scale UK walking software packages available I could install?
Answer: The Garmin Montana 600 only has one single microSD card slot, therefore you can only load one single preloaded microSD card at one time in the device. Besides you can only access and view one single map at any one time.
If you purchased any additional map e.g. GB Discoverer Southern England and Wales on microSD card (pictured right), you would need to first remove the BlueChart UK and Ireland microSD card from your device.
