Android 7 (Nougat) and maps to external SD

Reber Registered Users Posts: 4

When previously installing Mobile GO on Android 6, the maps were installed on the external SD card as expected (more free space on the external SD card). Now, when installing the same on Android 7, the maps install in the internal memory though all conditions are the same. It seems the Mobile GO app does not see the external SD card in Android 7. The app itself seems to work properly.

Is the app version already compatible with Android 7 or can we expect an update on this?

    Hi Reber,

    Welcome to the forum!

    I'm not aware of any change in this. I'd recommend you to contact Customer Service for further investigation.

    Cheers, Mikko

    Try this from Tom Tom support:

    Basically, with the SD card installed, Uninstall the App, the reinstall. When I re-installed, it loaded to my SD card.
