In this article we will explain how to set up and use a Micro SD card on the RealWear Navigator 500.

What is needed:

  • RealWear Navigator 500 
  • Micro SD card inserted into the device (up to 512 GB storage)

  5. Say “Use As Portable Storage”.
  6. Say “Next”.
  7. Say “Erase And Format”. The Micro SD card formatting progress should now be displayed.

  9. To enable the card as the default storage space say “My Controls”.
  10. Say “More Settings”.
  11. Say “Page Down”.
  12. Say “RealWear”.
  13. Say “Storage Mode” to toggle between local storage and SD card.
