Yeah, thanks. I saw that note posted elsewhere and I've done that.

One think you will want to consider if you do buy a micro SD card is to be sure to put a small piece of electrical tape over the slot retainer after you put the card in. ( retainer is flimsy )

Yes, I have an 8GB Sandisk micro SDHC in my 710 from Jungle Ghost also.

BTW, the unit does not come with a card.

When in trouble or in doubt, run in circles, scream and shout

I was looking at the specs of the Explorist 610 and comparing it to the Explorist GIS model. The GIS model specifically states that the expandable memory is SDHC compatible, however the 610 only states SD.

Will and SDHC card work in the 610?

I just bought a 8GB card with Topo Canada and a world base map with light background from http://www.jungleghost.com For $99.00 + shipping.

You have the option to choose either the world base map that comes with the explorist with the dark background or the one with the light background from jungleghost along with the topo area that you need (East, central or western Canada ) (I personally prefer the light background.)

The map is registered to your unit's serial #

I just bought a Nextech 8G on sale from The Source for $15 cdn. Had a 4G, but my maps wouldn't all fit... lol !

I've read you can use up to 32G, I might be mistaken though.
