    Hi
    @alan1812
    Welcome to the site...

    How to install maps and updates with MyDrive Connect....
    Here... https://help.tomtom.com/hc/en-gb/articles/360013960039-How-to-install-maps-and-updates-with-MyDrive-Connect
    ___________________

    NAV3 Devices with 4GB On-board Memory... Catch22
    Tomtom devices need at least one Map installed before they will Boot-up...
    The Maps on the NAV3 devices easily fitted onto the 4GB of on-board Memory, but the Map sizes increases with every update... Now the 4GB limit on-board memory size on the NAV3 devices is an unfortunate, but real Catch22 situation....
    The NAV3 Full Europe Map is now well over 4 GB….


    Note... If you already have the Map installed on a Micro SDHC memory card the NAV3 device will update the Map as normal....
    ___________________________

    When you update using MyDrive Connect, you should be offered a Map Zone.....
    If you mainly travel in the UK and do not need the Full Europe Map... The Europe Zone 1 has the UK&ROI Maps....
    ___________________________

    If you require the Full Europe Map you will need to install a 8GB or 16GB Class 10 Micro SDHC memory card (32GB is the max size, but it's way over the top for 4GB Maps)
    ___________________________

    Method... Install a Map Zone.... Zone 9 is the smallest Map Zone....
    I used Zone 1 as it also has the UK&ROI Map...

    (1)... With MyDrive Connect running click MY CONTENT menu...
    (2)... In MY MAPS... Click on the required Flag Icon (Europe)...

    1gmmg7ftpv93.jpg
    Note... You can ONLY use the above menu option....
    'Use a memory card in your device'
    If you have already installed a memory card formatted with the Tomtom propriety format....

    Follow the on-screen menu prompts to select and install the required MAP Zone....

    With the Map Zone installed... The device will Boot-up and allow you to Format the Micro SDHC memory card to the Tomtom propriety format, this will allow the installation of Maps
    (3)... Format the Micro SDHC memory card to FAT32 on your PC
    (4)... Insert the Micro SDHC memory card into your NAV3 Device, the device should recognize the card and offer to format the card to the Tomtom propriety format....
    Accept the offer and format the memory card...

    (5)... MyDrive Connect screen should now refresh and allow you to install the Full Europe Map onto the Memory Card....

    You May need to switch to the Full Europe Map ???
    From the main menu
    Tap (Settings)
    Right Cursor twice for next page
    Tap (Switch Map)
    Tap (Select the Europe Map)
    Follow onscreen prompts to exit

    I suggest you do not uninstall the smaller map as it will also act as a 'Keeper'
    This will enable the device to keep running on the smaller Map and avoid the Catch22 situation No Maps Found Error, where the device won't boot-up past the No Maps Found Error to allow access to the 'Format option' to allow the use of a Micro SDHC memory card
    Also, if you ever need to remove the Micro SDHC Card for any reason... Like transferring pre-planned routes via a Micro SDHC Card or Formatting a new/replacement Micro SDHC Card, the Keeper Map will allow the device to keep running....

    The Start 25 has the 8GB limit on-board Memory size, the 4GB NAV3 devices are an unfortunate, but real Catch22 situation....
    @VikramK or @lampard one of the Forum Moderators should pick this on Monday and add a new Smaller Map or Smaller Map set to the Account to get past the 'Catch22'
    Note... You may also receive a 'No Maps Found' error warning on the device....

    Stay Safe.... ATB YFM

    If your Start 25 has an SD card slot, add an SD of 16 or 32 GB maximum.

    Hi @alan1812
    Welcome to the community! A small map of UK and ROI has been activated for your TomTom. It should be offered as a download when you check for updates in MyDrive Connect.

    Regards,
    Vikram.
