The NAV4 Full Europe Map size is now 9.13GB... Also the fact that the MapZones have exceed the 8GB of the NAV4 on-board Memory is an unfortunate, but real Catch22 situation....
The Map cannot be split across the on-board Memory and a Micro SDHC Card... For the new larger Maps maps you need to install a Branded Class 10 Micro SDHC memory card
The latest Full Europe Map is 9.13GB so a 8GB Memory Card is useless, a 16GB or 32GB is required (32GB is the Max size Class 10 Micro SDHC Card for a Tomtom device)
Tomtom are allocating a small map to install on the on-board Memory of the NAV4 devices, to give access to the Micro SDHC Card Format Option
The advantage of the small Map would be plenty of working space on the device and the smaller map will also act as a 'Keeper'... This will enable the device to keep running on the smaller Map and avoid the Catch22 situation No Maps Found Error, where the device won't boot-up past the No Maps Found Error to allow access to the 'Format option' to allow the use of a 16GB or 32GB Micro SDHC memory card
Also if you ever need to remove the Micro SDHC Card for any reason... Like transferring pre-planned routes via a Micro SDHC Card or Formatting a new/replacement Micro SDHC Card, the Keeper Map will allow the device to keep running
Maybe on Monday @VikramK or @lampard the Forum Moderators will allocate a smaller Map to your Account

Firstly keep both maps on the unit so that if you lose the European map during an update you are still good to go and can reinstall the lost map.
Re the Live Traffic if you are inside it may well not work. Fully charge the GO5000 then go outside well away from buildings and tress etc with a clear view of the sky all around. Now do a soft reset then when the unit is working create a route and leave the unit in the open for about 30 minutes or so to see if it finds the sats.
Hope that works

Smaller maps have been activated. Could you try installing it on the internal memory and see how it goes.
