    Hi @mbooboo1974

    What is the speed of your Wifi

    Regarding the SD card what GB size is the card. Are you fully inserting the card in the slot. You need to push it in gently until it clicks then release it and it will very very slightly spring back out.

    Try taking the card out and restarting the GO6200 then insert the card when the unit is working and it should ask about formatting it.

    Is the Card a major manaufacurers such as Sandisk, Samsung as some of the lesser known cards have had issues.

    It will not work with an SD card that has been used for maps in another Tomtom unit as the maps are tied to the Serial number of the TT unit they were supplied with bought for.

    hi @mbooboo1974

    What Make did you get and I would suggest the 16gb or 32 gb is what you should get the others could not take the latest Europe map.

    If you can insert it into your PC then I would FUL not quick format it to FAT32
