Hello. I have a GPS Garmin 276C that is giving me very good results, but I find a weak point, and it is in the size of memory to load maps. If I am not wrong, the major packaging of memory that can insert in the GPS is of 500Kb, wich this capacity of memory only it is possible to load partially "TOPO ESPAÑA" wich is 1.3Gb size.

I'd like to install at least 2Gb microSD memory in order that could load the entire "TOPO ESPAÑA" (as it is possible to make with the Garmin 60CSx with microSD of 2Gb) and not have to load the maps as I move for the Spanish geography.

I have seen the package of the memory of 276C and believe that if it is possible to make a small box or to open an old package and includes a mini ó microSD of 2Gb will be  an excellent solution; but for this, it is necessary skills, knowledge ó experience in having tried it before.

If someone of you knows something of this topic or has some suggestion, will be welcome and in addition we might share it with other interested parties so that also they had the advantage of the price, since the micro or miniSD are nowadays to a price many low more than the original memories that Garmin provide.

Thank you for your contributions

I have seen the solution with 1 and 2 Gb data cartridges. It works! Cost is about $150.

In Europe, net buy 2 Gb, and then load them into the map.
