    I'm sorry to bring this back but I have tomtom6 on both my centro and 700p converted.

    Now when using Tomtom it seems to only refresh like once or twice a second when moving in the 3d map mode. Also when choosing anything in the menu it takes about 2-3 seconds for it to respond to screen comands.

    Is this normal?

    I tried formatting the 2gb micro sd in my cento using this command in DOS

    format X: /FS:FAT /A:32K

    After that it said

    Initializing the File Allocation Table (FAT)...
    Volume label (11 characters, ENTER for none)?

    I hit enter after that.

    I tried to copy the folders back onto my card like palm audio dcim etc and they all take forever to transfer.

    Did I do something wrong?

    Can someone Please tell me how to properly format a sandisk 2gb Micro sd card for a Centro to get tomtom running faster and smoother?

    Also for a 8gb Adata SDHC class 6 for my treo 700p?

    Any help whatsoever will be greatly appreciated.

    Any further thots on checking the cluster size on the SD?

    Try going to a DOS window first, then try bringing up CHKDSK.
    i.e. Start | Run | cmd, then within the DOS window type in CHKDSK x: (change x: with your actual drive letter for your mSD/SD memory card).

    Less than 4 GB (FAT16):
    2 GB SD (SanDisk) FAT16 mit 32K: format X: /FS:FAT /A:32K

    4 GB and more (FAT32):
    4 GB SD or SDHC (Transcend) FAT32 mit 16K: format X: /FS:FAT32 /A:16K

    "X" is the drive letter.

    Wow!! Interesting information. I was thinking of moving up to a 32 GB card on my 680. Do you think your "4GB and more" statement still applies with cards of that capacity (32 GB)?
