update my Rider device

I have exactly the same problem. TomTom keep asking me if I want to update my "Rider". Well if I can't use this device to navigate me from Yorkshire to Spain (as I did when I first bought it) why would I stick with them? This is obviously a wide spread problem so why isn't it being fixed?

    Hi @Maxsdad

    This issue is peculiar to the devices with limited memory ability. and have no facility to add extra memory to them. Since your device was put on the market the maps have got bigger as more roads and developments are built which presumably you would want included on any map you have. In your case the only solution is to create Mapzones which means that someone in Spain cannot now get to the UK.

    Most TT units supplied since yours was issued have more internal memory and or the facility to add extra memory up to as much as 32gb so for most this is not a problem.

    Hi Doug
    That sounds like a very rational explanation. However (there always seems to be one of those doesn't there). The TomTom update system tells me I definitely have sufficient space to download "Southwest Europe" and says that includes UK and Spain. I download it and hey presto - no UK. Spain, France, Andorra etc, but definitely no UK. So back to downloading "Western Europe" with UK and no Spain. Also back to looking at Garmin units for my next trip abroad (no hurry at present obviously).

    Hi @Maxsdad

    Hi @DougLap

    Its a RIDER Nav2 serial number starting K4 so the exact map zone map may not apply as for the Nav4 and above devices.


    Hi @Maxsdad

    Welcome to the community!

    I have activated a different map cut for your device. Try installing that on the internal memory of the device using TomTom HOME.

    Regards

    Well, it gives me UK and Spain on my device but no ability to ride to a postcode, so not a lot of use. I'll go back to the Western Europe Mapping I had. At least it gives me functionality in this country.

    Hi @Maxsdad

    Are you inputting Postcode without a gap in it? If not then try with no gap.

    Hi
    @Maxsdad

    As far I recall... On the NAV2 devices the Postcodes are in a separate file to install/update using Tomtom Home....

    OK, thanks for the advice. Found the Postcodes file, so have that facility again.
