Default Garmin maps on SD

What is the prefix or suffix on the map file you see on the card. I have two maps that I want to use on another garmin unit but these sd cards also have updates for a 4212 that I saved on them. If I plug them into a 421s will the updates try and load and fugg up the 421 or will just the maps show? I would like to delete the updates but I cannot distinguish between the map file and the update file.

They will not try to update the 421, and even if they did, it would just stop as the update has model info it is compatable for in it. So no worries.

In anycase, the update file to delete from the SD card is: GCDUPDATE.xxx or soemthing very close to that. it's only one file.
