I have been reading FAQ and stickies for the past 3 weeks. And it is a lot of info and I learned a lot.
About my TT: It is XL 330 model with 1gb. Navcore 8.014 (i know it is outdated but it works and it is fine with me for right now). boot 5.5019
the unit is great and i never had any problems with it. I just updated map with the 875.3673 us and Canada map.
First: I want to thank you to everyone for all the info and maps. (donation will be coming soon.) FAQ thread "7 simple steps to update your device with the latest map" is the best. Very easy to follow. May be someone can make similar one for navcore update (So far info is all over the place, and I don't know which patch to use).
Second: Now to my question about the maps. what is the difference between 875.3673 and 875.3675 map. According to TThome .3675 is detailed map, But if you look at file size .3673 is larger size which would mean it has more details, Right? I may be I am wrong, but please explain to me.
Third: My parents live in the Russia and I want to get my dad GPS. The only problem the buttons would be in English. Does anyone have Russian Navcore or knows a way to modify the English one? any help would be appreciated.
I think this is all I have for right now. I am sure I will have more questions later.
here is my other question, when i connect my TT to TThome it doesn't give me navcore update does it mean i have the latest for my model or can i force TThome update for a newer one?
thanks for the info about V10.
According to russian tomtom website i can use my XL.
yeah i think i am going to get a cheap 2nd one from ebay to play with diff navcores. This way I don't mess up my XL.
So what about the maps anyone? which one has more details.
oh and also, when i downloaded new maps there is a forder inside with name "Brand" it has buch of small pictures what are they for? My original map that came with Xl didn't have that folder, do i need it?
ok so i have been thinking about difference in maps well, .3675 doesn't support TTS, which is why TThome recomends for my XL. Now the model XL330s had support for TTS.
So which navcore not too far off from mine would have TTS support. Right now i have 8.014 no TTS support.
I understand that, the problem that i have. I don't have an option in my TT settings to turn it on or off the TTS.
what do i do to get that fumction working?
the way i understood from reading the FAQ would be: Put vocalizertts forder in the root, patch it and it should work? right or wrong?
