GPS won't use micro-sd-card

My GO 500 has formatted my 4 GB micro-SD-card.
It Asks: use for maps or routes.
I chose Routes.
Formatting works fine.

But after that, Mydrive Connect still claims that there is not enough space.
Those 4GB extra has done no difference.
1. What can I do?
2. Why can’t I have a Map zone?

    Hi
    @Søren Midtiby

    Sorry to say a 4GB Micro SDHC Memory card is too small to be of any use other than transferring route/s planned offline onto the device

    You can't split a Map across Onboard memory and a Memory card
    The whole map must be installed on the Onboard memory or a Memory card
    As far as as I'm aware all of the Larger Europe Maps are around 8GB to 9GB
    So the Minimum Micro SDHC Memory card that can be installed is 16GB... Max 32GB
    I use a Branded 16GB Class10 Micro SDHC Memory card
    With the Full Europe Map 8.9GB install on the Memory card

    Thank you very much for your good answer!

    Do you have an answer to my second question:

    Why can’t I have a Map zone?
    I don't need all of Europe, but I am not given the option...

    Hi @Søren Midtiby

    Probably because with the addition of up to 32Gb of additional memory there is no need to have the additional cost of preparing Zones for these units..
