can't use map on this device

Hi , I recently bought my car , a senic 2013 and I now need to update the map to a europe one. I haven't done this however because I made a back up , using HOME and restored it to a new sd card just to be sure i didn't lose the original data. The restored card doesn't work, says the map can't be used on the device, ( uk and Ireland map) .

I copied the map off the original SD card ontot he computer , then onto the new SD card using HOME, same problem. Tried two SD cards , same problem. Card were both reformatted ,then put into the carminat and the loop.dir is present, can you help?

I don't want to buy the europe map if it is not going to work

many thanks

    Hi @Ratso

    Welcome to the community!

    I have reactivated the map on your device and I would advise that you follow the below steps..

    1. Connect the SD card to the computer and open TomTom HOME.
    2. Click Manage my device in TomTom HOME and select the Items on device tab.
    3. Expand Maps and then select the map you want to remove.
    4. Click Remove selected items, click OK to delete the map.

    Once this is done- Download the Map I assigned-

    # Click Update my device in TomTom HOME.
    # Your new map is shown in the list of updates.
    # Click Update and install.

    Vikram :)
