    It won't, as the map cut is not designed for the RIDER model. That is also the reason it's not listed under the coverage.

    We won't sell maps for world map devices, or else It beats the whole point of advertising them as a world device.

    Hi
    @Harold_Segura
    Connect the Rider 550 to your Wi-Fi....
    Tap 4Dot (.... Menu) --> Setting --> Maps --> Add Map....
    Scroll down list of Maps.... Select the Colombia Map to start the installation....

    Hi
    @Harold_Segura
    Sorry for the mistake....
    You are correct, I've just checked my Rider 550 and Go Premium....
    The Colombia Map is available to install on the GO Premium....
    But on the Rider 550 the Colombia Map is not available to install ???

    I've sent Vikram (Moderator) a PM, Let's see what he says on Monday

    Hi @Harold_Segura
    Welcome to the community!
    We have limited map designs and regional map cuts for certain countries when it comes to the RIDER models. The rider maps required a specific set of layers that enable them to find routes that are featured on the device, example the -Winding route.
    I think that is also the reason why Colombia is not listed under the map coverage section on our webshop
