    Hi @edd200sx

    Have you formatted the new card for maps in the Tomtom unit. Tap menu, Tap Settings, Tap System and Tap format memory Card.

    Is the Card a Micro SD Class 10 memory card sized 16gb or maximum 32gb as you will need those sizes to be able to download the latest European map.

    Finally is the Card a Sandisk , Samsung or similar major make as it has been known for some lesser known makes to not work in Tomtom units. and did you get it from a reliable source to avoid fakes which are around.

    The Tom Tom is unresponsive and says no maps available and I can’t get into menus.

    I’m going to try another sd tomorrow and go from there.

    Would it still be unavailable in mdc if it wasn’t smaller than required.?

    Thanks doug.

    So admins can add me a small map on my account if it still can’t install with new sd?

    Hi I have a TomTom Go 5100. I get no maps banner appear on my screen after attempting a new map download. So I followed the above video on youtube, however when I sign into MyDrive Connect, it automatically goes to the download screen at 7% progress. There is no way for me to go back to the main MyDrive Connect screen to inspect what is on the TomTom and to remove the corrupted map.

    What do I need to do to go to the main MyDrive screen after logining in?

    Welcome to the site....
    The GO 5100 is a NAV4 Device with 8GB of On-Board Memory... The Full Europe map size is now 9GB+ and exceeds the device memory, you will need to install a 16GB or 32GB (Max size) Class10 Micro SDHC Memory card....
    @VikramK or @lampard the Forum Moderators should pick this up on Monday and check for any live Map subscriptions and if required will allocate a small Map to act as a keeper
    Important See Catch22... https://discussions.tomtom.com/en/discussion/comment/1686043/#Comment_1686043

    Hi @David121

    The GO 5100 model you have, comes with Lifetime world maps. To avoid the Catch 22 situation, try installing a smaller map like Venezuela onto the internal memory as a back up.
