Hi,

This subject has been raised a number of times before so apologies for asking another variation. My device is a 2008 One XL Western Europe with 1 GB internal memory, so can now only load one Zone.

 

I recently bought a 2GB SD card but didn't realise it would not utilise internal plus external card (3GB), so I am back to one Zone on the SD card - a wasted purchase. I now find out there are no 4GB SD cards, only SDHC, which One XL will not recognise.

 

So my options are:

(a) buying 3 x 2GB SD cards and loading a zone on each (thanks to a forum member for that)

(b) buy a preloaded W Europe card from Tom Tom, or

(c) buying a new device.

 

What do forum members suggest?

I would go for option C. Less hassle. Definitely no B, and you can do A, not much of a hassle (apart from the downloading times), and would cost around £6 in total (if you get the cards from eBay or so).

    Hi Zsolt,

    Many thanks for the advice. Not imminently going to Europe, so I will wait to decide what to do. The longer I wait the more attractive is option (c).

    I have TT one xl bought in Spain in 2007 (249). I now want to update the W/Euope maps which exceed the 2GB card so purchased 4GB SD card from Amazon where I was told it is suitable for my device. The map that was supplied was never correct; in Spain roads missing, directed us totally in the wrong direction; our road that's been here for 50 years is not on most maps but a none existent road is.

     

    The 4GB card can be loaded with a copy from the working 2GB card but the TT will not accept it but TT Home will.  It tells me on TT home 2.9 with the card in the device to format the card. Well it is formatted. I have not found anything from Tom Tom to advise that the one XL will not accept a 4GB card.

     

    Personally I have never been happy with my TT. It never seems to know where it is. Turn around on a motorway, turn right over the viaduct, sends you down a 4km dirt track or even advises to turn into a farmers field. When ever it got near to Lyon (France) it always went crazy. I put this down to low free memory 28Mb hence the attempt to increase the useable memory. It does not add the 2GB card to the device 1GB.

    I think the limit is 2GB for that device, but hopefully others will chip in to confirm...or deny.

    Using the TomTom ONE XL, the simplest way to increase capacity is to load the latest Navcore which is 9.170_SE.  This allows you to use a SDHC 4GB card also a 8GB SDHC card works satisfactorily. You'll also get a "CLEAR ROUTE" button.

    (You can forget about trying to source 4GB SD cards! - these are AUD6.82 post paid from China to AU)

    Remember that with the One XL (and many others: https://uk.support.tomtom.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/9893/kw/memory%20cards) you must also have the TT app software and a voice installed on the card before it will work.

    Further to my previous post regarding memory cards for a TT One XL.  The original problem that I had was the TT I had was a TT XL which does not have the memory card facility, only the internal memory which would only hold EITHER Australia OR Western Europe NOT both!! So I gave it to my grand daughter and bought a S/H TT One XL off eBay.  The model seems to be 2007.

    The long and short of it is that I have the two maps, Australia 935.5744, the latest version (for which I have a subscription) and the old Western Europe 815.2024 from 2009 - 10 (this was quite an accurate version).

    These two maps happily co-exist together on the 4GB SDHC (awfully standard card) and both work perfectly.

    Navcore 9.170SE can be downloaded from the internet as most of the English speaking sites seem quite reasonable - I have not picked up any gremlins from where I got Navcore.

    Navcore is a bunch of directories (14) and files (probably 16 or maybe 27).

    You probably need to load up the 4GB card using the computer for both maps and then run FastActivate on them both.  Make sure that you get the latest version of FastActtivate as a new one comes out every couple of months.

    Good luck,

    Navcore is simply the navigation software on the navigation device. For example my XXL540TM uses Version 9.510. If there are improvements to this software a new version will be released with a new version number, which could be 9.520 for example. If you have one of the models mentioned in the link I provided earlier, you will have to install that software (using TTHome) and a voice before you can add a map. If you have a functioning card already then that software is already installed.

    Connect to the latest version of TTHome, log in and the latest version of your Navcore software should be offered, or click "Update my device".

    The original TT maps are usually provided (by TT) on a 1GB (or 2GB - I forget) which have a strange file structure and can be quite difficult to obtain (something like one supplier only out of China!).  This makes a normal 4GB SD card very useful.

    HOW TO:  Stick the 4GB card into your computer and load on to it Navcore 9.170-SE, Map 1 and Map 2.  These files go into the root directory so you should have 14 file directories and 2 map directories and a bundle of loose files.  You may need to include a copy of FastActivate q.v.  Insert this card into your TT and connect the TT to the computer - DO NOT FIRE UP "TT HOME" AT THIS STAGE, however, you will need to start TT Home later because it will contribute some extra files to complete the build.  

    Put your 4GB card into your One XL and it should fire up with the yellow bar streaking across the bottom of the screen.

    Navcore is just the operating system (Did I say "just"?)

    I've checked out by loading an 8GB card with the Navcore and two maps and found that it will not fire up in the TT device as the 4GB card does.  It looks like you may have to lay hands on a 4GB SDHC card to make it work in the TT One XL device. 

    My apologies for any inconvenience.

    Originally, the One XL would only accept the SD card, so the SDHC card may not work.
