    You need MyDriveConnect with that model. Get it at

    Hi @ebarrett

    You can load the map the same way as you load updates for the unit via MyDrive Connect.

    Maps are sold tied to the particular TT unit you are purchasing it for. So when you open and log into yuour account in MyDrive Connect after purchase it should appear under the heading My Maps. You can then click on the map and ask for it to be added to the unit itself. You may have to purchase a Micro SD card , 16 or 32GB is recommended, to load the map onto as it may not fit on the internal memory with the existing software and map.

    It is suggested that you use a Micro SD Class 10 card from a major make such as Sandisk , Samsung etc.
