    Help and or advice for a newbee please

    Hi
    I have a TomTom one v1 running navcore 8.395 and Map Truck 840.2554 on a 4gb sdhc card, bought of ebay and works very well.
    I would like to upgrade my TomTom one XL to take this card but I'm not having much luck !!! I have formatted the one XL and made back ups of the sd card. But all I'm getting on the XL is the red X on an sd card symbol !!!! when turning it on with the sd card in the slot, any ideas please.
    Many thanks

    first of all, when you format a SD card, do it using SDCARD FORMATTER 2.0 --> Here!,,,

    anyways, just re-install your backup for now and see if it works....

    Your device has 32MB of RAM and 1GB of built-in storage right?

    Because the Truck MAP is kinda heavy, download size is over 2GB...

    If your TomTom doesnt take that SDcard u have,

    tell me whats the bootloader version of your XL ??

    Open the file called "ttgo.bif" with notepad, its found in the root of your XL's built-in storage... not root of your sd card!!

    Then Look to see whats your bootloader version number is... Example --> BootLoaderVersion=55136...

    Because Most bootloaders over version 5.5xxx all support 4Gb SDHC Cards and upwards

    5.3026 (chksm E91F) this is the bootloader that is in the xl. What I was hoping to achieve was the XL loaded direct from the card and not from its internal set up !!!

    i understand but, Most bootloaders over version 5.5xxx all support 4Gb SDHC Cards and upwards,,,,

    So thats your problem right there,,,

    ok, make a backup of your XL's internal memory... its always good to have!

    then, install bootloader version 5.5128 on the interanl memory of your XL... not on SD card!!

    just leave the SD card on your desk for now,,,,

    So here it is --> bootloader 5.5128

    extract content of zip file and simply copy the file named system to the root of your internal memory & overwrite if asked...

    then switch off and reboot your XL....

    Always without SD card in your GPS, does your XL boots fine for now?!

    OK, we are getting somewhere, upgraded bootloader and the xl will now read the card :-) but it is telling me "problem with map, you cannot use this map on this device: Europe_Truck-109 ) which I find strange as I have a friend running 840.2554 on a One xl !!!!

    well thats easy to fix...

    to use a MAP downloaded from here, you need to do 2 things...

    #1. Activate your MAP (basically create a META.DCT file using a special tooL)

    #2. Patch your NavCore (if not already patched using a special tool)

    so, did u do that?

    Nope !!! the card Im using came from eBay with a TomTom one v1, so I have done none of the above as I was told all I had to do was change the model number on the SD card for it to work in the XL !!

    well obviously you were told wrong right!

    ok, in your TRUCK MAP FOLDER, located on the root of your SD card, is there a file called --> xxxxxxxxxxxxx.meta.dct ?

    and directly on the root of your SD card, is there a file called --> ttsystem ?
