Thanks for the info.  This is actually the internal Memory card on the  
N810, don't have the ability to change it that I know of.

The other problem is, that if/when I format it, I lose all the maps  
that are currently stored on the card.

Otherwise, I would have already done so.  ;-)

I had my 770 for about 2 years.  The 810 does have some nice features  
in addition to 770 feature set.
