    Hi @co318is

    I am afraid you will have to wait until Monday for @VikramK or @lampard to have a look at this and activate the maps if they can.

    Hi @co318is

    Welcome to the Community! I've re-activated the Western Europe map on your device, Just connect the device to TomTom HOME and check for updates.

    Regards, lampard

    and getting this message
    The current map does not support truck attributes.Car routing applied.

    if I buy another newer tomtom which one will support the truck map sd card.

    Hi @co318is

    You cannot use the SD card with the truck map on it in any other TomTom unit. Maps are tied to the serial number for which they were supplied or purchased for.

    There are truck specific TomTom units.

    Finding sats will only work with cold start. Starting from standby doesn't work anymore since WNRO. For car navigation, there's a fix, but for truck navigation, there isn't. Only workaround (google for "suicide.dat").

    There is now an unofficial solution. Basically, you have to update the firmware of the GPS chip. After that, finding satellites works again without problems.

    what you need is the unofficial GPS upgrade Sirf3 GWS3.2.5 or GWS3.6.0
    So I've flashed several sat navs successfully. It can be found on a German forum.

    GPS chip SIRF-III upgrade from version: GSW3.1.1 or GSW3.2.4TT3 to version: GSW3.2.5TT3 or GSW3.6.0
    for TT GO 510, GO 520, GO 630, GO 710, GO 720, GO 730, GO 715, GO 920, GO 930, ONE, ONE (v2), ONE 3Rd (v3), GO 7000 Truck, Rider 1 + 2
    The "Standby Problem" is now fixed (renewed Sat-Fix after standby within a few seconds).
    the device list for which the firmware upgrade is suitable:
    TomTom ONE 1st Edition with SD 2GB Serial Number: G1; G2
    TomTom ONE 2nd Edition with SD 2GB Serial Number: E1; E2
    TomTom ONE 3nd Edition with internal memory 512MB and 1GB serial number: Y1; Y3
    TomTom RIDER 1 + 2 with SD 2GB serial number: K1; K2
    TomTom GO 510 or TomTom GO 710, GO910 HDD 20GB Serial Number: V5; V7
    TomTom GO 715 serial number: M7
    TomTom GO 520 with 512MB-1Gb memory Serial number: M2; M4
    TomTom GO 530 with 1-2 GB memory Serial Number: J1; J2
    TomTom GO 630 with 2GB memory Serial Number: JB;
    TomTom GO 720 with 512MB-2GB memory Serial Number: M6; M9
    TomTom GO 730 with 1-2-4GB memory Serial Number: J3; J4; J5;
    TomTom GO 920 (T) with 4GB memory Serial number: M8;
    TomTom GO 930 with 4GB memory Serial number: J6
