Hello everyone,
I'd like to use my TomTom for a trip between France and Turkey. I need multiple maps to cover my route. Is there a way to install multiple maps to the device? When I choose France, Turkey and Bulgaria is automatically greyed out. Any suggestions? Thanks.

    Interestingly my map options are completely different. I tried to change the country to France but it didn't change the option. Do you think it is related to my device model?

    I have just realized that option but I need a memory card first. Thanks for the help.

    For future reference, I'd like to summarize my experience.
    Full Europe map is too large for internal storage. That's why it was not offered.
    Download whole map option only works when an sdcard is installed. The size is around 6.7 GB so 8 GB microsd should do it. After installing the full map to SD card, internal storage map is deleted. If you want to keep a partial map in the internal storage, you need to connect the device without memory card and install a partial map. After inserting the memory card, you can see two different maps under My Maps menu.

    Hi @afaruky

    I would install a 16gb micro SD Class 10 card as the full Europe is circa 9gb and will only get bigger as will all the others.
