What type of microSD card SDHC/SDXC for Garmin Edge Explore 1000 GPS unit

I now have the Garmin Edge Explore 1000 GPS unit for my bike touring trips. and
I was told by GPS Nation Store that the Garmin Edge Explore 1000 GPS unit supports
64gb microSD card. and my question is microSD card SDHC? or microSD card SDXC?
and looking on google is confusing at my age.

Thanks

Any should work.  The variations basically just mean the speed in which the data can be written or read from the card.  I think I use a SDHC on my Garmin 64s.  Also, a 64gb is a LOT of memory.  You most likely will never use more than 10gb.
Happy trails and may the wind be at your back!

I have a 16GB in my Etrex and that is plenty memory.

I think I've got 32 Gb in my Edge 800.  Note that booting on startup slowed noticeably when I put that chip in.  I suspect the 64 out slow things twice as much, if it's got to load the entire chip before it starts.

Generally, devices load the files on the chip, not the entire chip.  But I'm not sure if that's true in this case.  Can you time the boot time with no chip, with an empty (formatted) chip, and with a filled chip?  That way we'd know how the device handles the data.
