I have an echomap 74dv and was sold a navionics sd card

Customer Question

I have an echomap 74dv and was sold a navionics sd card which I inserted in the machine and downloaded it. Realized it was the wrong sd card and brought back to west marine and exchanged for the garmin sd card. Now when I insert it and try to download it says error, not enough room on memory card. Is this fixable?

Is there enough memory available on the Echomap's internal memory for the upgrade?

If so, the software may need to be updated first before you update the maps.

If the new card you got has maps on it, then you should just be able to leave them on the card and plug it in and access the maps externally without importing them.
