Is there anyone out there who could fit a new chip into a dead data card?
One of my 128mb cards died. I got a free replacement from Garmin but I've still got the old one. It would be nice to have it fitted with a 512mb chip.
 
In theory you could get the faulty chip replaced. I believe Garmin use a non-standard formatting tho.

Also, both the unit firmware and Mapsource need to recognise the size and I believe they will only recognise up to 256MB (for the new Garmin cards).
 
Howard,

Haven't used his services myself yet, but this gentleman may be able to assist.

Let me know how you get on.

Cheers

Graham
