This was because some devices require a full size SD, while other use the much smaller micro SD card. If your Garmin uses a smaller micro SD card rather than a larger SD card, you will need to first remove the micro SD from the large adaptor.
Thankfully these days this isn't an issue, as every Garmin map card Active GPS sells now includes an SD card adaptor with preprogrammed micro SD card inside. Please see the illustration to the right which is taken from page 2 of the instruction manual - supplied with the purchase of any Garmin map on SD/micro SD Card from Active GPS. Preloaded mapping can occasionally override new mapping. Please refer to your Garmin user manual, but typically you would follow this procedure: Tools Map Info You may need to ‘untick’ any preloaded maps and ‘tick’ the newly loaded map.

Geotag your photos so everyone can see exactly where you took them.
We are occasionally asked by customers how to install the plug-and-play mapping and map updates on SD card into their Garmin device.To take the micro SD card out of the SD card adaptor simply hold the SD card between two fingers and, using a thumbnail, slide out the smaller micro SD card from the bottom of the larger card/adaptor. It may be that you only see the old maps (typically 2010.20, NT v.9 or similar).The SD card needs to remain inserted in the slot at all times. If so, please ‘untick’ whereupon the new maps should appear.Easy GPS automatically geotags photos from any digital camera, allowing you to map them on and in Google Earth. Easy GPS converts between lat/lon, UTM, MGRS, and hundreds of national grid coordinate formats.Just one click converts all of your Garmin data between any format or datum (WGS84, NAD27, NAD83, and dozens more).These will include the identification 2016 or 2017, typically '2017.20'.
