Great GPS - How to get to work with 64GB SD card

I just received my Garmin Monterra from Cabella's. I love the unit so far. As I continue to play with it and test all of its features, I will post updates on known problems/issues. The Monterra supports up to 64GB microSD memory cards, but you need to do the following to get the 64 GB card to work. The Monterra works fine with SanDisk Ultra Class 10 32GB microSDHC cards – when inserted into the Monterra, I am able to mount the SD card from settings/storage and the card works fine. If you insert a 64GB microSDXC card, you will get an error message saying SD card is damaged. In talking to Product Support yesterday, you need to reformat the SanDisk Ultra Class 10 64GB microSDXC card (ExFAT is the default for this card.) to FAT32 . I reformatted the SanDisk Ultra microSDXC memory card from ExFAT to FAT32 and now it is readable in the Garmin Monterra GPS as well as on my computer and Garmin basecamp. When you try to reformat the card with Windows 8.1, it only gives you the options of ExFAT or NTFS. But I found a free downloadable third-party program called EaseUS Partition Master 9.3.0, which allowed me to format the microSDXC card to FAT32.

Not Ready for prime time

Pros - Lots of potential with Android. File manager, online updates from the device. All your favorite android phone functions.

Cons - Big one, You get to pay to be a beta tester. Garmin apps crash. The garmin compass software causes the compass to be off by 60deg and it drifts. This means no good heading info when hiking. One software update so far but it made the compass worse. You can add a third party compass from the play store but it's not integrated with the Garmin stuff.

I have a Montana and it worked much better initially and all the software improved with updates. It was usable when I first got it.

As it stands now, I would not go into the woods and depend on the Monterra to get me out. If you don't want to be a beta tester don't buy it.

I will probably continue to mess with it because of my inner geek, but if the software doesn't get much better by spring when I start hiking again, I will not be very happy.
