    Quite simply down to a poorly written operating system.

    Took a couple of attempts as it initially failed halfway through writing the large map to the SD card, but in the end, it worked!!

    Many many thanks.

    Hi @dikkie123

    Welcome to the community!

    Smaller map of UK and ROI has been activated for your device.

    It should be available for download in MyDrive Connect.

    Regards

    Hi cordtex

    A smaller map of UK and ROI has been added for your device.

    It should be available for download in MyDrive Connect.

    This should get installed on the internal memory of the device which will allow you to format the memory card on the device and install a larger map.

    Regards

    Hi @raptor812

    I am sorry but I cannot assign maps of specific countries.

    We are trying to add the UK and ROI map because we want our users to have a working device in case if the installation fails on a memory card.

    Regards

    If you head a post with "@VikramK " he will likely pick up on it and add a small map to your account so you can update your device.

    Hi @chemk75

    Sorry to hear that you have not been able to get that card working again. Looks like you need a new one.

    Soooo glad I'm not the only one with this problem :-)

    Dear @VikramK could you please help me out as well? I have a Go 6000 and face the same issue as all the other fellow TomTom fans here; Update failed, Map to big for internal memory.

    Many Thanks!

    Cheers.

    HI @MisterThompson

    Assume you will be getting a Micro SD Class 10 memory card size 16gb or maximum 32gb in order to be able tho download the updated Europe map once you can get your GO6000 going again.

    Hi @DougLap

    Your assumption is correct - I already have 16GB Class 10 SD Card which I used until the update failed. After that it was not possible to erase the half-uploaded map from the card via MyDrive Connect so I formatted it on the PC.

    I found it a little disappointing that you can get into this situation. Perhaps there should be a dummy map in Drive Connect to avoid these kind of problems.

    However - if one of the Tomtom masters here around can help me out like they did for the others I'm happy with it :)

    Cheers

    M.T.

    Hi @CarstenBA

    If you fit a Micro SD Class 10 memory card, size 16gb or maximum 32gb, then you can update your current map.
