Is there a way to have UK and all countries en route to Greece?

Is there a way to have UK and all countries en route to Greece? Can only find groupings all Europe except UK, or with Italy or Greece missing. (We have TomTom Start 60 with Free lifetime maps). Surely we're not the only people wanting to drive down to the Med. countries - with no need for Scandinavia, Russia, Eastern Bloc, etc. Have gone for Zone 6 without UK as we know UK better! We would not be able to update en route as these updates can take hours on a reasonable internet connection at home, so not possible when travelling

    To have the whole of Europe add a 8GB or 16GB SHDC class 10 memory card see my guide https://en.discussions.tomtom.com/go-800-1000-2000-series-via-series-start-20-and-60-series-mydrive-19/formatting-a-micro-sdhc-card-990256
    The slot is positioned under the power inlet see 53f7baff-d420-400f-892c-c29b75a759e5.gif

    Leave the zone 6 on the internal memory then you can put the whole of Europe on the external memory card

    Thanks - will look into this & costs involved.
    How do we get TomTom to produce an option for UK down to all Med. countries, excluding Scandinavia & Eastern Europe? This should fit. I'm sure our requirement is not unusual & it should be possible on the standard product without having to upgrade with more memory.

    I looked at your links in case you had found something different. We had looked at zone options - hence original query says 'gone for Zone 6 with No UK'. Zone 8 has no Italy but has UK & Greece, Zone 2 is another with Greece & Italy but not UK.

    Hi
    Is your Start 60 a local GB&ROI only Map or a Full Europe device

    As Niall says the easiest way is the Full Europe Map + a 8GB or 16GB Class 10 Micro SDHC Card at around £4.99ish, it the most cost and time effective, one map no swapping Map Zones mid journey

    We do have life time all Europe maps - so at present Niall's suggestion seems the only option. I was concerned at the problems posted that many people had installing & using the extra card - so thinking we may manage without if the problem is not addressed by TomTom before we travel on this particular journey.
    How can we get TomTom programmers to create a zone that would work for UK to all Med. countries, leaving out Scandinavia & eastern Europe ? I guess now this is my question, as our journey seems one that many people would want. Do their support people look at this forum?
