It is entirely possible to format any of the external USB drives, SD cards, or MicroSD cards of a much larger size with the FAT32 file system. ... Mac computers can also format these larger storage devices to FAT32 via the GUI or the command line. ... I have not tested, but suspect that 256GB MicroSD cards will also work (this is based on the fact that I am using 256GB USB stick to store music on and plug into my Tesla which says that the maximum size for the required FAT32 format is 32GB).  ...  "
