Specific Maps are licensed to be used with specific devices. However, if your device has a card slot, and an additional map is stored on a card, you can choose which map to use. To do so: Press the change preferences Use the right arrow key to change the page Look for Manage maps Tap Switch maps A list of the maps available is displayed. Select you wetern Europe map.
It is possible (almost certain) that the GB map you have is licensed to be used on that particular model. It is like Apple not allowing an Ipod owner to play music not downloaded through iTunes. You should consider buying a new GB, or even a European map valid for your GPS.
You can activate products by connecting the unit to a USB port of a computer. If The Tomtom Home application is installed on computer it will launch and update the unit. On page 1 of main Home menus there is an icon for activation.
To make things easy for you I am enclosing a screen capture from the HOME 2.7 application.
First BACKUP your SD card. Go here and download latest version of TomTom HOME >> For the PC or for the MAC , You can download tomtom HOME here >
I would recommend you only do a map upgrade if you definatly need to as looking at other posts on this forum lots of people have problems after trying to update maps. Updating maps is NOT FREE , you have to pay for updates and after downloading updates you need to reactivate the map with your product code . Only do an update after backing up your existing maps other sie you might have trouble reverting back if the download goes wrong.
