There's the 4GB SD card for £9.99 at Play.com here:

I think it's class 4 but apologies if not. It's currently in my Navigo GPS...

You could also get a bit of Quidco from Play.com too.

I had a look at that one because its such a good price, but they do not specify the speed so I assumed it is a Class 2 card. I wanted something a bit faster - might not make a difference with the Navigo but one or 2 people reported somewhere I read that its performance was a bit better with faster cards

The Play one is class 4. Look at the image above, there's a 4 inside a C, this indicates class 4 SDHC.

Thanks for clarifying that, I think I will stick with the Kingston card although at £9.99 the Play.com card makes a handy backup card. I will wait until I get the Navigo before buying anything else for it

The Play one is a Toshiba card, very good quality, amazing for the price.

is this compatible for software upgrades on the navigo, i know you can only use one type for software upgrades, but not sure which one

Not sure what the compatibility issues are that you refer to but I've had no problems with software upgrades with the one I'm using on my Navigo.

Thanks for the info, but I will stick with the Kingston one for my precious data. As I said would be happy to use the Play one as a backup

im not sure really. Just i read somewhere that if you are simply using it for music etc to play through the navigo then any is fine, but if you are hacking it or running software of it then it causes a problem. Is your navigo hacked and does it work with the tomtom software etc. is it the play card you are using

I have not received my Navigo yet so cannot be sure, but the difference between devices is whether they support FAT32 file system or not. FAT32 lets them address more than the 2GB addressed by the FAT16 file system. Since many people, including mattnju above, have reported they use 4GB cards, then would think the Navigo is FAT32.

The software for the Navigo is held on the SD card so should not be a problem with software upgrades, you do this on your PC and just right the new applications/software to the SD card. Firmware upgrades however are different and you might need a card that YOU format as FAT16 to do a firmware upgrade. As I say will no more when I actually get the Navigo.

yeh thats exactly what i was told before. so does that mean the biggest i can get is a 2gb SD, and that if i bought a 4gb SDHC i would need to reformat it. Is the play car FAT16 or FAT32. thanks

You format a card what ever way you want. If you format a 4GB card using FAT16 you can only see the first 2 GB. Generally cards (well the ones I use are Kingston and SanDisk) come pre-formatted as FAT32 if they are 4GB and if they are 2GB cards they come formatted as FAT16. But you can format a card in a card reader attached to your PC as either.

Veho 4GB 4GB SDHC class 6 Secure Digital Card from ebuyer £12.42 inclusive of VAT and p&p

This works in the Navi-go after the reformat to FAT rather than FAT32

To clarify, the card works in the Navi-go as FAT32 but comes up as SDMMC2 (sometimes !) but if you reformat to FAT using a command line tool (can't remember the name just now) it sees the device as SDMMC and all is good....

I'm using the play.com card which is FAT32. I've hacked my navigo so it boots up toWinCE and added various bits of software to it. Have had no problems so far.

Just a small observation. I have the play.com 4 gb card in my Nikon 40d (this site again) and it can not be read on my internal pc card reader. assume same with all sdhc cards.

Just peel the sticker of the Play card and you have a nice Toshiba logo printed on the card.

Peeled sticker off and still does not work in card reader!

Alot of older card readers wont read SDHC, most new ones do, the one in my DELL pc reads them fine

You can get a SD-HC card reader in Poundland in exchange for one of those worthless small round gold things.
