    Hi
    @Simonwwfc
    My GO Premium is fine... Works for me....
    A few tips... Maybe usefull....
    The NAV5 (Wi-Fi) devices normally update using Wi-Fi....

    Re... The GO 600
    The early 8GB NAV4 devices... The Maps fitted easily onto the 8GB of on-board Memory, but the Map sizes increases with every update... Now the 8GB limit on-board Memory size on the 8GB NAV4 devices is an unfortunate, but real Catch22 situation....

    The latest NAV4 Full Europe Map size is now around 8.6GB
    I do not think you will find enough space deleting files to install the full Europe Map... The device also uses the onboard Memory for the Operating System + 400MB is used for working space and is considered the bare minimum free space for the device to operate....

    @VikramK or @lampard one of the Forum Moderators will pick this up on Monday and add a small Map to the Account to get past the 'Catch22' No Maps Found error....

    For More Info & Options See Catch22... https://discussions.tomtom.com/en/discussion/comment/1686043/#Comment_1686043

    I’m a delivery driver so need my sat nav every day , I mostly drive around the south east around m25 etc so I’m hoping it will be just as good or better than my old go 600
