When I turn on my Tomtom Rider 550 I keep getting reminders for regions (e.g. Africa, Asia, etc) which I don't want.
How do I stop these reminders?

    Hi @GlynC

    The fact that you are being offered map updates suggests that you have the relevant maps on your device. Removal of the maps will stop the offered updates.

    Thanks Doug, I suspected this might be the case.
    I'm in New Zealand (Oceania).
    Do you happen to know off the top of your head how to check/delete other maps?
    I'm not really being lazy. But I note a lot of different discussion threads on this, and it seems people have met with varying success.
    Also - if I delete a map (say, Europe), do you know if I can re-install the map at some time in the future?

    I've got 18 updates available. They are for different European countries. I've already got a complete map of Europe. Do I need these updates? Do I have to delete the map of Europe to create space? How do I remove the updates if I don't need them?
