Fitting Truck map on 4GB SD card?
AS the latest truck map is a bit bigger what are the best files too delete to make it fit some 4GB sd cards?
All i have done is removed the cspeech DAT files apart from the cspeech GBR one and now have 127mb spare.
As im no expert Is that a good (safe) way of doing it or are their better files too remove ?

You've done right. if you can now fit it (incl the 9701/9702 navcore req'd to run the truck map) onto 4Gb then job done.
Note I'm not convinced you need to do anymore like below so try what you have & please report back here
We used to be able to squeeze these down to fit 2Gb but sadly not any more
The method was as follows so pick 'n choose the minimum stuff you need to delete
Before you start:
Make sure you have the complete Truck map and of course that a meta code is available.
You also need a full featured country map from within the coverage of the Truck map - either the country you mostly drive or just something small like the DACH map.
How to make the map small enough:
Firstly be aware that all these mods will cause some negative effects too, like no POI's, different visibility of park and industrial area and other minor things.
All that won't affect the pure Truck navigation though...
Ok let's get going, shall we?
1. If not done unpack the downloaded maps into corresponding folders on your hard drive.
2. Create another folder to store the smaller Truck map in.
(of course you could just extract what you need, but simply copy and delete is easier for most users)
3. Copy all files from the original Truck map into the new folder - your working folder from now on.
4. In the working folder delete all cspeech files as well as the following files:
5. From your single country map copy the following files into the working folder:
Confirm to overwrite existing files!
If you still have enough room left you can add the crpoi.dat and poi.dat files from the single country map to get POI's of your area,
add the cspeech file for your language,
or simply add some music
Be aware that especially the 32mb devices will need some free MB on the storage to perform properly!
If you fill up until you only have less than 10mb left you most likely will get into trouble during navigation.
Since this is all a last resort option I would advise to just leave it with the above and not to use spoken street names of the whole POI collection, after all it will also reduce the performance on low end devices.
However, I would suggest just trimming stuff down a few files at a time rather than this pretty drastic method.
I would also suggest keeping just 1 voice as they can be quite chunky
Alternatively maybe get an 8Gb card?Please do not just post "thanks" but use the "thanks" button bottom/right or the reputation star "*" bottom/leftS i m p l e s

I'm wondering why not as biggerdave suggest using an 8GB SDHC card ?
Simply the best solution, the Bootloader may not be the problem and when you use a 16GB it even possible to keep the last but one as spare.
