The answer might surprise you just as much as it did me when I stumbled across it in a search at Garmin Support. :)
Frequently Asked Questions
How many map segments can I load to my nuvi?
When using MapInstall or MapSource to send mapping to a device, each map item selected is called a map segment or a map set. You can select multiple map segments and send them all at once to a device or a memory card.
Although other devices have a limit to the number of total map segments they can read, the nuvi line does not. When sending maps to a nuvi, you are only limited by the following:
Total available memory on the nuvi, if sending directly to the device
Total available memory on the SD card, if sending directly to a memory card
MapSource and MapInstall limitations
Currently, MapSource and MapInstall will only allow you to send a maximum of 4GB of map data at a time. This means that although there is no limit to the number of map segments a nuvi can receive or read, you may still only send up to 4GB of data at any one time.
