    Hi @madebo

    If your GO520 is one of the Old units with a serial number starting M2 or M4 then it has been declared obsolete by Tomtom so it is not possible to add further maps etc to the unit.

    Thanks a lot Dough, serial number indeed starts with M2 so Tom Tom considers it obsolete. No idea how old my system is but it came with a car I bought from an elderly gentleman who never installed maps other than Scandinavia. European maps are on añ SD card.tgds

    Hi @madebo

    Circa 2009 was when the GO520 unit you have was on the market. The major issue is that the internal memory of the device is either 512mb or 1gb. The operating system has Ito go on the internal memory and when it fist came out the map went there as well.

    The operating system is much larger now and the Europe map is circa 9gb thus the current models have 16gb of internal memory.
