We can transfer the map to the card but is there anything we can do to increse TT memory or make it accept the SD card?

Re: tom tom one xl wont accept SD card with map on
If you have TomTom that have the slot for SD card, then it should accepted the SD card. The instruction for how to use the SD card is simple, but it is hidden in the TomTom Home, that's why it's difficult to find it. Below are the instruction how to use the SD card.
1. Format the SD card (FAT32) and do not stick the SD in the slot yet
2. Run Backup (connect TomTom device to computer)
3. Disconnect TomTom from computer and turn off
4. Slide the SD into the slot and connect TomTom back to computer (choose "yes")
5. In the TomTom Home menu, Choosen Backup & Restore >>> and choosen Restore
TomTom Home will add all applications to the SD card. So the internal memory still have the applications and the SD card also had the same applications. Everytime you slide the card in, TomTom will automatic detect and use it as its primary storage, if it not detect, you can go to the device menu and pick the device to connect to.
Whenver you take the SD card out, then TomTom will use its internal memory.

So it never work even on a different unit so the problem there can be with the SD card the data inside it might be corrupted, how about if y9ou check the content of that SD card to make sure data are still there...
If you bought the satnav in the USA it won't work in Europe. If you bought it in Europe you can download the maps but the full map of Europe won't fit on it. You can fit Western Europe or add and remove countries as you need them. It's probably not a satisfactory solution when traveling with a motor home. You can put the map on an SD card but the nuvi 200W has problems reading maps from SD cards of 2 Gb or more. The map of Europe would take a 4 Gb card to hold it all.
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.
Question for you: How did you wind up with a navigator with no card and no maps? You might consider taking it back to the place you bought it and exchange it for one with the minimum necessary to make it work.
If it did fail and you are installing to an SD card then you might want to try another brand of card first. but before you do that make sure you back up your device to the PC. I have two large maps on mine, a whole heap of voices etc, and the backup alone takes over 2 hours
I saved the map on to my computer from the tom tom in Tom Tom Home and installed it on to a new SD card and now it working perfectly. I bought a 2mb SD card for £6.70 put it into a card reader and connected to computer and installed map and it gave me the instructions to put into device (Tom Tom) and switch on to connect then off and back into card reader to finish. Then I disconnected device which is important to do by the way put the new Sd card into Tom Tom and it is workink perfectly. I hope this help others who have problems.
This problem is due to the memory card not containing the TomTom application or map. To update the application onto the memory card
Connect the device to your computer.
Open the TomTom Home application.
Click on 'Update My Device'.
This should then install the application onto the SD card. Alternativly, you could perform all the steps above without the SD card in the device, this will install the application onto the internal memory. Note: you may also need to install your maps, voices, etc after you updat.
First make sure you have a backup of your NEW ONE XL. You should be able to connect your XL to your PC using USB but not use TomTom home software. Your TomTom should appear in "my computer" as a drive . OR , put the SD card in a USB reader connected to a PC , that way you can look at and copy from or to the SD card.
You should be able to copy the map you have to the SD card directly ( if there is enough room on it ) , if theres not enough room , get a new bigger card , copy all the backup files you already have on your PC + the map you want. You might / should be then able to activate that map in the XL using the codes you say you have for the maps. if you try to do this using TomTom home it might have some restiction to stop you activating the required map but hopefully you should be able to do it manually as described above rather than use TomTom home. ... GOOD LUCK .
Hi, Answers to your 2 questions 1 and 2 . ...... 1/ go into PREFERENCES , hit right arow key till you see MANAGE MAPS , Tap that MAP icon and in there will be all the maps you have on the SD card. Select the map you require by tapping the screen. ............................................. 2/ YES , backup the SD card to your PC first. ( you should save everything on the card as it is ) Then delete the Europe map off the SD card and replace it with the USA map . You will need the authorisation code for the USA map in order to activate it. When you return you can swap the maps back again.
