    Hi @Nettie63

    Just to check if you go into Settings/Map / Choose another map can you find a Truck based map listed. If you can then Select it.

    If you have not got a Truck map listed when you do the above go to Settings/Maps/ Add a Map and see if you can find any truck based maps listed among the World maps that should be shown there. If no reference is made to Truck against a map then it will be a standard car map.

    If you find a Truck based map amongst the maps available in Add a Map then find a small map such as Iceland, Iraq or Venezuela and load one of them onto the unit. This will added to your your internal memory as it will be very small.

    If you don't have an extra memory card in the unit on which you could down load the Truck map then go into Settings/Maps/ Delete Maps and delete the the main map on it leaving the little map alone. Where you have deleted the map go to Add Maps and add the Truck based map. With this loaded you will get the Truck options.

    If you cannot find any Truck maps to download then advise here and we can ask oner of the Mods to check if the unit is in fact a GO 6200 Professional which is the truck version.

    Hi @Nettie63

    Lets see what @VikramK has to say tomorrow. He should be able to tell whether it was originally sold as a Truck device.

    Hi @Nettie63
    Welcome to the community!
    Had a quick look at your account and I see its not a GO PROFESSIONAL model that comes with Truck maps.

    The device comes with embedded World Lifetime maps that are suitable for car navigation.

    I would suggest that you contact the point of sale and see if you can get it replaced with a GO PROFESSIONAL model that comes with Truck maps.

    Thanks, Vikram.

    Shouldn't it be Go 6200 Professional for truckers?
