SD Card capacity for Nuvi 1490

The smallest micro SD card available these days appears to be 8GB. Will this work ok in a 1490?

    Yes, as long as it is formatted FAT32

    Forgot to mention, this is to carry out a map on the 1490. It has not been updated in the last two years and I know that the update needs the micro SD.

    Thanks Alanb. I can now update my daughter's 1490.

    Is it the North America map you are updating? If so, you might want to put the "large" JCV file on it after the update. It contains more complete and higher quality junction views than the small JCV file that installs with the map update. A member over on POI Factory has uploaded the large JCV file (with implied permission from Garmin) to a file sharing site. You can find the link over there.

    Alanb, no it is the European map. Thanks for the thought.
