What is the proper way to insert the flash card into an OMNI?

Friday, July 31st, 2009

Along one of the long edges of the CompactFlash card there are 40 tiny holes where the communication pins inside the card slot plug in. The flash card shipped with every OMNI has a small tactile bump placed on the face of the card near the opposite long edge (i.e., the trailing edge). Insert the flash card with the holed edge in, and the tactile bump facing away from the OMNI’s keypad.

When the card is inserted correctly, it should enter the card slot with very little pressure, then stop when it is flush with the side of the OMNI. Apply a little extra pressure (say, enough to press a thumbtack into a corkboard) and the card should seat the rest of the way (about one eighth inch) and stop.

If your flash card does not have the tactile bump, feel along the non-holed long edge for a small lip. When inserting the card, this lip should be facing in the same direction as the keypad.

How large (storage-wise) of a flash card can I use in my i.d. mate?

Friday, July 31st, 2009

The i.d. mate II, i.d. mate OMNI and i.d. mate Summit can only access up to the first 2 gigabytes on its memory card. A larger capacity card can be used, but only the first 2 gigabytes of storage space will ultimately be usable. The i.d. mate II and the i.d. mate OMNI use a Compact Flash card, and the i.d. mate Summit uses an SD card. The i.d. mate Quest and i.d. mate Galaxy use an 8 gigabyte Micro SD card and can be upgraded to 32 gigabytes. Please note: Flash cards need to formatted correctly and have the proper files and folders in order to work. Please contact our technical support team for more information, 1(800)890-1180.
