Transferring maps using a PC or Mac

In order to transfer map files either to or from the Defender 2 please follow the relevant guide below:

From the Defender 2
If you have purchased a Memory-Map Map Pack you can copy the map files from the Defender 2 to your PC or Mac. The steps to do this are:

  • Create a new folder on the hard drive and name it Maps
  • Connect the Defender 2 to the PC or Mac as normal (a guide for this can be found HERE)
  • Open the drive named MM_GPS_XX (XX is the type of Map Pack i.e. MM_GPS_50K is for the OS Landranger Map Pack)
  • Open the folder named Download
  • Right click on the folder named Memory-Map and select Copy
  • Open the newly created Maps folder on the hard drive
  • Right click and select Paste


To the Defender 2
The Defender 2 is a FAT32 based device and as such is only compatible with files that are smaller than 4GB. If the map files you have are larger than 4GB they will need to be split into sections, a guide for doing this can be found HERE however if the map files are smaller than 4GB the steps are:

  • Connect the Defender 2 to the PC or Mac as normal (a guide for this can be found HERE)
  • Open either the Internal Storage drive or the microSD card (depending on where you wish to store the map files)
  • Open the Download folder
  • Open the Memory-Map folder
  • Open the folder on your PC or Mac that is used to store the map files (by default this is Maps_V5 or Maps on PC and com.memory-map.macapp for DMS based maps or the folder that was created to store media based maps on Mac)
  • Copy both the QCT and QC3 files for the map to the Memory-Map folder
