    HI @PaulaTracey

    Keep an eye out here and see if one of the Mods @VikramK sorts you map out for you

    Hi @PaulaTracey

    Welcome to the community!

    A map has been added for your device. Please remove the existing map first and then download a fresh version using TomTom HOME.

    Hi @VikramK

    Kind of worked had to put the map back on then update, not sure why after I removed the map it would not show any updates. Thanks for the help.
