Good day, How do I updated maps on my TomTom XXL GQ device? The TomTom Site says that this device is not supported anymore.

    Hi @Rikoo

    Tomtom declared the XXL device serial number starting GQ obsolete about 2 years ago. The unit only has 2GB of internal member and does not have the facility to install an extra memory card. One of the main reasons is the size of the maps which for example the Europe map going from 1.6gb to 6.5 at the time. The latest models have 16gb and in the case of the Discovery units 32 GB of internal memory. Most TT models have the ability to add extra memory cards so, with the exception of devices with limited internal memory of generally 2gb or less, are being supported by TT.
