Try calling Clarion however be forewarned, they're no very helpful. I've heard that there is a mini SD card under a cover (bottom left corner)

Go to this link https://clarion.naviextras.com/shop/portal and it'll tell you how to do it. I did it about a year ago. You take out the micro SD card , put it in your PC , download the map, then take the card back to the RV> and install it.

I just spent many hours trying to update. First I have only a 4GB sd card in my 2014 coach. I did 3 backups/sw update cycles and then purchased a USA map update. Once the purchase was complete I was informed that my SD card was not large enough for the map update I purchased. I then went out and bought a 16GB SD card to replace the original. I have spent many hours trying to get the clarion to recognize the new card once I copied the original to the new card. No luck, the clarion NX501 will not bring up the navigation app with the new card. I tries a restore from the latest backup and this also did not work. I did see during the process a statement that only the original card will work. So I guess maybe I can not ever do a update since I do not have the space on the original card. NOT GOOD. Anyone else have any information to add? Thanks in advance. Now I fight for my $74.95 back for the update that never finished or worked.

You mention 3 backups. You might want to see if those backups were all stored in a folder on the original SD card. This would take space on your original card. Sometimes, backup routines do not remove old backups automatically. It might be better to direct the original card backup to a dedicated folder on your PC. Also, the failed new map update attempt might have left some state or regional files that might not erase the next time you attempt to update your new map. Take a look at the contents on that original SD card when it is inserted into your PC. You might see other stuff you could remove to make space for your map update.
