Actually this is quite simple. Place the basemaps on your SD or SDHC card and then do a MENU>>VIEW>>MAPS and place a check mark by the basemap of your choice.

NEVER change the internal basemap of the GPS as this is periodically updated in the firmware update process and your basemap will be overwritten. This will NEVER occur on the SD card.

Can I add a Florida map to a Tom Tom 25 or do l have to add a new memory card and remove the u k maps


some TomTom models do not have enough space to store all the possible maps you can download. You will probably have to remove your current map in order to install the Florida map. The TomTom utilities should tell you how much is need/available.

How to change original setting on citizen blue angel


Did you register the watch with Citizen UK? because they can give support, after you registered. I don't think they mind if you bought the watch outside the UK, as long as it is not on a list with stolen watches.

My magellan triton 500 will not fully turn on. It statrts to load the bat goes all the way and then freezes. I can not turn it off either.


You need to reset the magellan triton 500, then it will fully come on and stay on. To reset this type of magellan. What you have to do is to take out the battery and reinstall it back in. That should do the job for you, and if that does not solve the problem, then you have to back up the maps on a computer then format the triton then restore the software and maps back on it. Now am assuring you that will do the job.
Hope this information helped you.

I live in the USA. How do I use the TomTom Go 910 in the UK?


Should work just fine without having to change anything. If i remember right UK is still on the imperial system and not the metric which wouldn't affect the unit, just in the road signs, As in kms to someplace instead of miles like you are used to. As for the maps i would suggest that you buy another SD card and download the UK maps to it and leave your card at home. To switch maps see if the map you need is on the SD card, probably not, but it might be on your cd that came with the unit. If so just use a new card and download it using the software onto the SD card. Test the card to make sure that it works before you leave though. Hope this helps

I bought it in Australia, when i got back home (UK) i went to windows explorer and deleted the Australia map and replaced it with Great Britain map from a disc i had. When i turned on the device it says...


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.

I cannot access any of the maps I loaded onto my SD card


First of all, the maps must be created and match the serial number of the GPS you will run it on. Next the maps must be transferred to the SD card in the directory /MAP_DATA The GPS always looks at this directory for any map.

I can't view detail maps on my new Triton 400


The RED X is a symbol when the maps you have do not match the serial number of the GPS you are trying to run them on. You have to use the Adventure Pack and create NEW MAPS with the present GPS attached.

Triton 1500 GPS, I can't get any green bars to receive position.


You may have a few problems. First the GPS signal is controlled by a special GPS+ANT card in the 1500 and it may be defective. As for dates, etc. this could be caused by an other firmware update or a bad software file. Go to the Jungle Ghost Repair Center at www.jungleghost.com they have parts for the Triton units.

I don't think you can change the base map, you can however add maps, maybe the UK will fit in what's left. You will need the Europe DVD to do that with an unlock key.
