    I want to get an SD card to move my maps to plus some mp3's. I have read here that a 4gig card is about the biggest that works with the GO720.
    I have a choice between a SanDisk 4GB Standard SD card and a SanDisk 4GB Ultra II SDHC card.
    I would appreciate your advise!!
    PS I am running ver 8.3

    With NavCore v8.3, you should have a new bootloader that removes the 4GB writing restriction to your SDHC card. GO 720 models did not have much of a read restriction on SDHC card as nuch as a TT write limitation which gets used in some situations: route planning, screen captures, updating a POI record etc.

    Without having read the specs, I assume the SDHC card would feature a faster read/write speed than the older card which is always better.

    Thanks Gilbert, I suspected that the new 8.3 did as you said but wasn't sure ... will pickup the faster card tonight.
