Large Memory Cards    (Score: 1, Normal) 02-13-2006 17:35

What is the largest size CompactFlash / SD card you guys have sucessfully used in your navi? I am finding 4gb CF cards for $150 and under, though I am unsure whether the navi system can address the FAT32 filesystem that would be used on such a card. (2gb is the barrier where one can no longer use standard FAT) The manual makes no mention of this.

Hopefully, one of you guys has tried this before, cause I sure don't wanna tank the money on a card that big if it's only got a 50/50 chance of working.

Largest according to Honda is 512. Rumor says Some 1 GB works. Only Certain Brands have been tested...

i don't have a navi si but i sometimes use an Akai MPC for making beats. it's only rated for 1GB with the original OS, but anything seemed to work just as long as I stayed away from the cheap stuff. take care.

1 GB in mine that holds 932 songs. Works well. I hear that not all brands work well. SanDisk does.

the pcmcia adapter i use was purchased from compusa. its compusa part number is 314310. it costs $19.99 and can handle secure digital (SD) cards, multimedia cards (MMC), smart media cards (SSFDC),and sony memory sticks here's a link:
http://www.compusa.com/products/product_info.asp?product_code=314310&pfp=srch1

the card i use in the reader is a PNY 2 Gb secure digital card. I also bought that at compusa when it was on sale for $99.99 after rebate (its actually $199.99 now).
here's a link for the card:
http://www.compusa.com/products/product_info.asp?product_code=334914&pfp=srch1

I would also like to know if anyone has gotten anything over 2 GB to work. I really like the card reader feature on my civic and was surprised how quickly i filled up my 2 GB. I know using CD's with MP3 or WMA files on it would be cheaper than buying large memory cards but,I like not having to open the nav screen to switch CD's repeatedly. I really like the interface since it allows easy control via voice or touch screen. I was planning on getting the IPOD interface but after reading how user un-friendly it is i'm glad i didn't. I think the card reader with its current interface is a much better solution. the only drawback being it can't hold as much as an IPOD.

a related question, I haven't be able to figure out how display the root folder list on the card via a single voice command. Saying tracklist will display the songs of the folder you are in. The tough screen has a small foler icon in the upper right corner that allows you to navigate up 1 folder level. anyone know how to do that via a voice command?

Well, the good news is that I tried formatting a smaller card as FAT32 instead of FAT, and it did still function in the reader. I know that doesn't mean anything is definite as far as making a 4 gigger work, but bear in mind that many devices that take CF won't even TOUCH an FAT32 partition...

Actually, it's worth a try. There have been some who've had success using more than 1 gig in the PCMCIA slot. I'm just using a 1 GB SD card, because you can get them for dirt cheap now.

I recommend picking one up from a CompUSA, Best Buy, Circuit City, or whatever you have in your area. Just check the return policy. Test it and then return it. If it works, buy the same thing online which will undoubtedly save you some money. If it doesn't work, well then try going down a size. This is my plan when I get my Si, I hope to get a 4gb CF card.

I just saw a couple great deals on 4 gig SD cards for $65 and $70 after rebate. They're Transcend 150x and Patriot 133x. I really want to get one but I won't have my Si for another couple months and I'm afraid to buy the card now and end up finding it won't work with the navi system after it's too late to return it. I guess I'll just wait and keep an eye out for some deals after I get the car. Here are some links in case anyone is interested.

Hmm, I still confused guys is the pcmcia adapter a bridge between your compact flash card and your navi input? Or a bridge between your pc and your cf card? Sorry for my newbie question.

The PCMCIA adapter is for the navi. It had a PCMCIA card slot, not SD, CF, or anything. So you get the adapter and whichever format of card you want and you're set. You'll also need a card reader for your computer, obviously.

Will I need an eighty-hole punch machine to make cards for the card reader? just kidding, but i'm a newbie with a lot of catching up to do.

Do most computers have a PCMCIA slot? What does it look like? Once I have the card and PC adapter where do I actually find the music files? I see where up to 999 tracks will work, but I'm seeing napster selling songs for 99 cents each. Does that mean a grand to fill up a SD card? I Don't think there's 50 songs I even like. LOL

Laptops have PCMCIA slots, desktops don't. Say you get an SD card. You'll need a PCMCIA to SD converter for the navi, and an SD card reader for your computer. Some desktops have card readers built in. Any laptop will have a PCMCIA slot, and many newer ones have card readers for SD, CF, SM, xD, etc formats.

If you want to buy songs individually, yeah it'll get expensive. Or if you have CD's, you can rip them to mp3. Or you can do a less legal thing and download them yourself for free. I have over 30 gigs of mp3s and that's not really all that much. They make 60 gig iPods, I'm sure there are people that can fill them up easily enough.

One more quick question-
Can you add more tracks at a later date, or do you have to make one big burn? ...and if you can add more, can you delete individual tracks and/or replace them? (oops- that was at least 2 questions)

Thanks

First it's one question, then it's two? Don't push it!

A memory card is rewriteable, it's not like burning a CDR. When you connect it to your computer, it will recognize it as a removeable storage device. You then copy over all the files you want. At any time you can copy more files over, or delete everything, or just delete some files. Think of it like a removeable hard drove, or a floppy disk, if you remember what those things are. :p

Thanks for all the help letsgoflyers81. I DID IT!!
Went to Best Buy, got the SanDisk 1gig pro card, got the SanDisk 6 'n1 adapter, and got the SanDisk Reader, paid about $130 bucks, used Windows media player to rip 10 songs to the Reader, took out the chip, put it in the adapter, put it in the reader slot, and it worked perfectly first time!!

Now, I've got to go to the library and check out a bunch of CD's (I like the old stuff anyway), and load up those other 998 tracks.

Thanks again- couldn't have done it without all the great advice and hand holding.

Now, everybody will be glad to get rid of these monster quotes. LOL

I can confirm that the SanDisc 4 GB card works in my '06 civic hybrid with navi.

I am using this card (paid $112): http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?skuId=6375148&type=product&id=1077624805088

And this adaptor (paid $14):
http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?skuId=4746519&type=product&id=1093467451044

It came formatted to FAT32, and I first filled it up to the max - 999 songs, 99 folders, 3.7 GB. That didn't work, so I removed and consolidated some folders.

I tried to find the threshold for what it will read. My last attempt was 982 songs in 82 folders, which also wouldn't work. However, I then backed it down to 944 songs in 82 folders, (3.23 GB) - which now works just fine. It takes the navi about 20 sec or so to read the card, but it does work reliably. I haven't noticed any songs that won't play yet.

Good luck!

I should clarify - 20 sec to initialize the card each time I start the car. Changing tracks is instantaneous.

What format card, Secure Digital or Compact Flash? And what brand is the card and card adapter?
