  • Micro Disk for Garmin Nuvi 50LM?

    I did create a lot of "weeds"........ <<grin>> I just can't help myself, sometimes tangent paths are to irresistible for me.

    The vendor you bought it from is the first place you should look. If for whatever reason Garmin shows the id of this specific device as only having a limited mapset, then that will only be problematic for future updates. So you need to ensure the vendor sold you what you bought.

    I am not happy that the 680T is definitely mounted as a portable device and not needing safe release.
    I don't understand your concern here. Being mounted as a portable device, which should give it a removal policy of "3", is the safest method to protect it from corruption due to unexpected removal. The other removal policies do nothing to ensure a better outcome, they just let Windows and other programs behave in a riskier manner.

    You can verify the removal policy when the device is connected by right clicking on any storage device in the file explorer and selecting "properties" then the "hardware" tab, then select the correct device from the list and then the "properties" button near the bottom, then the "details" tab, then select "removal policy" from the dropdown list. If it is a "3", then Windows will not cache writes to that device. It is write caching which causes file corruption due to unexpected removal.

    I haven't disagreed with any of your suppositions in this thread. I just stated my preferences and made a postulation or two.
