    That is a horrible price. A SanDisk class 10 32gb card is currently 12.95 at amazon. And SanDisk makes a good card, I've used them for years upon years, never had any problems.

    And a 64gb is 24.95

    Yeah perhaps I should have mentioned that compared to amazons sales on them it's horrible.......If you have the patience, amazon semi-frequently has SanDisk and other cards on sale(like today)

    I generally use the opportunity to future proof something, for instance my phone has a 64gb sandisk in it from the last sale amazon had. Really hard to beat the prices, at least when buying from a well trusted source(amazon etc)

    Thanks for the above posts. You do have to shop around. Newegg has them for about $7.00, but the prices fluctuate daily. You will find them at different ranges. I cannot offer any brands, but make sure you get class 10's for the higher speed data transfer.

    My testers have used a few different brands and so far nothing has failed. They have said it seems to run faster loading the maps.

    Will they delete the internal maps on the TND? That I do not know. But they will set a default file for the NaviMaps on the Micro SD Card to force the TND to use the NaviMaps on the Micro SD Card.

    I highly suggest using high speed internet to download the new NaviMaps. WiFi, Aircards, and MiFi may take longer than you wish.

    I highly suggest if you know how to make a backup of your TND to your computer before you update.

    Thanks,
    Mark

    I could see it if the units were broken or something but even a 720 with outdated maps is still a very good unit.

    if i were going to sell mine i would want 150 to 175 and one is in the box never used

    You forgot to read the big print.

    when you trade in any GPS

    Does not say a TND or has to be in working order.

    Thanks,
