I have the original 2GB SD card in my TT. This is not big enough to take the new European map I paid for.
I've tried every way which to use a none TomTom 4GB SD card
According to the support notes on the TT site 4GB SD cards need both the application and one or more voices present on them to work. I tried this on the 4GB SD card I have, nothing going. So if I buy a TT 4GB SD card will this work? Does it come preloaded with the required software? I look forward to your responce with interest. Why can I not use my 4GB SD card?
Solved! Go to Solution.

4GB SD cards won't work: They are out of the SD standard which goes to maximum 2GB.
4GB SDHC cards should work. No no-name products! SanDisk or Transcend cards should be OK.
SDHC cards with more than 4GB capacity will not work.
Important: Rider & Rider 2nd must have been booted under Firmware 7.901 immediately before inserting a 4GB SDHC card. Earlier firmware versions won't "understand" SDHC cards.
External USB 2.0 readers are much faster than the USB 1.1 of your Rider 2nd. You may use an external card reader for all copy actions and for installation of the new map via TomTom HOME.

I recognize reports in the other forum (you know which)...
From those reports I understood that most 4GB SDHC will work at the Rider but not at the One 1st edition.
And vice-versa most 4GB SD cards will not work at the Rider but very well at the One 1st edition.
My intention was to post the safest version (SDHC) for the Rider.

Hi Do not now if you sorted this yet BUT Tomtom Rider will work witha 4GB Card (Although some from Tomtom say it will not)
I have a Tomtom Rider 1 and a Rider 2 and both are running without problems using a SanDisc Ultra 11 SDHC 4GB CARD.

Hi, tried a 4GB SDHC Transcend card on my Rider 2.
Followed your instructions.
TT2 works well with the larger SDHC
Only issuse I have is that all my favs were wiped out
Additionaly once I have added a fav or two and update at a later time the TT2 wipes them out of existance!
Also the home location
Other than that everything works well.
Can you be of any further assistance?

Favs are related to a specific map and will not be transferred automatically.
The favs are stored in the file mapsettings.cfg which is located inside the map drawer.
Try to copy the mapsettings.cfg from the old map into the new map.

Below is the response I received from Tech Support.
It works but is a pain in the you know what and it should be simpler.
