Helix 5 SD Card Compatibility
« on: September 05, 2022, 09:29:21 AM »
Might need to replace my 597 (I'm posting details and questions on my problems to the 500 series forum) and if I do it will be a Helix 5 because I need that particular size on my small boat.  In my current 597 I use a Navionics Lake Maps HotMaps SD card and I am wondering if the Helix 5 will allow me to use that same card.  The first question is physical SD card size.  I've looked at a lot of Docs and can't find any specifics about what SD card size (micro or "regular") fits into which Helix 5s.  Can someone point me to a reference?  Better yet, if anyone can say for sure which exact H5 model(s) will allow me to reuse my card that would be "the final answer" as they say.

Thanks

PS:  In theory I should be able to "move" my licensed Navionics card to a micro SD card but I would be shocked if there is a mechanism to do so.  If anyone knows otherwise, please LMK.

Here is Navionics contact info for your question of moving your Navionics info to another card  ... (I highly doubt this scenario is possible)  ...
