This weekend was the first use of my Magellan Meridian following a
firmware upgrade to the latest version for my unit (4.02) and the use of
a 128 meg card containing ten or so large map regions covering about 1/3
of the USA.
I found the hard way that using Menu/CardUtilities/ChangeMap with about
50 waypoints loaded and several generated manually before departure and
created enroute resulted in those generated ones disappearing after
passing a map boundary and loading a new map region.
Solution, if you need to "change maps" for safety, save waypoints to a
card file before executing a map change.
The behaviour is inconsistant... for example, waypoints "loaded" from a
card file were not displaced by map changes, only the ones manually
entered or "captured" enroute.
If you have other Magellan devices with SD cards, recommend,
experimenting with generating a test waypoint, then changing maps and
looking to see if the waypoint survived.
