However, there are ways of making the map segments larger so you can fit the whole CD onto the card and still stay under 2025 segments. This is being discussed in another thread. 2GB cards are not much more than 1GB cards. Many are under $20 now, and some even come with a micro USB reader and mini and full size adapter cards.

The main reason to avoid the Topo data cards - or any Garmin maps on a data card - is that you don't get a DVD with maps to install on your computer. You will only be able to view them on the GPS. Not good for me as I do most of my route planning on the computer.
