I´m in Portugal and I have the Tomtom One XL with maps of Europe.
Next month I'll go to Mozambique for 3 years and would like to use my TT there.
I searched maps from Mozambique but I couldn't find none. Only southern Africa that covers poorly Mozambique.
My questions are:
- is there maps that cover Mozambique and SAR only?
- how should I buy them, if exists?
- is preferable to buy a card with the map, or replace the one I have actually?
Thank you, in advance, for the assistance

If you'd like to use your TomTom in Mozambique, you are correct and you'll have to buy a map with the coverage of the area. I've checked for you and our Southern Africa map has connecting roads of Mozambique, Angola, Botswana, Malawi, Namibia, Zambia, and Zimbabwe.
We don't have a map that just covers Mozambique unfortunately.
The Southern Africa map size is 120.4 MB, so if you have this much space on your card already, you don't need to buy a new SD card for your TomTom.

Zoe, thank you for your assistance.
One complementar question (forgive me but I'm a real "nerd" in this matters) - it's possible to buy the card with the map? or should I insert the card in the device and buy and download the map to the card?

No problem - it's not possible to buy the African maps on SD card unfortunately, we do offer maps on SD card (see here) but the maps are only of Europe and North America.
The reason for this is the maps of the EU and North America are huge files to download, so in many cases it is easier to get them on an SD card, if your device is compatible. In comparison, the African maps are smaller files, so they should download quickly to your computer.
You can download the maps to your existing card if you have enough space. If not, you have two options;
If you do want another card to put the maps on, you can buy an SD card from any electronical retailer in your area - please see the following link for the compatible SD card sizes for your TomTom.
Hope this helps!
