    depends how much internal memory you have or if you can add a sd card to your xl...what tomtom xl do you have ?..if its internal memory is more then 1gb, yes you can, also best to upgrade your navcore too...

    Western Europe 1GB 865.3259 is now 1009.8 MB and will not fit anymore.
    Minimum Navcore size is 60MB
    You could therefore replace the file poi.dat and by a poi.file
    limited to your own country. That saves 100 to 115 MB
    No poi's in the rest of Europe!
    These stupid commercial POI's from TomTom nowadays consume to much of your internal memory.

    Alternatively you could make use of partial Europe maps like Europe_1GB_North 752.2MB
    If you live in Benelux, mapsize less than 100MB, you could combine it with Benelux 865.3245 for ALG and IQ (replace cpeech*.dat files with 0 size files with the same name)
    you should make use of patched Navcore 8.562SE and bootloader minimum 5.5022

    Re: which map?

    And why, for real, do you want the whole western europe map?' Can't you just use part of that map?

    What i mean is: I could use western europe, europe south... whatever BUT, i really don't need them. Why??? Because i won't be travelling by car on all those countries in the next few months...

    SO...

    I rather use the only ones i will probably will be driving. And those are Spain and Portugal. So i've choosen to install only the Iberia map.

    Can you understand what i just said? Maybe the countries where you live don't have that chance, i don't know, but it's only an idea that you guys can use tha get a more detailled map from your area (size for the same map also means a little, very little more details in the map, as bigger as they are)

    LOL... No you cant. Unless you could do a cut / join with the maps. And do you really need all them at same time?

    Because you could use Italy (one) Europe North (other).. and so. And you only neede to change maps using your pc when you needed. It wouldn't take long since maps would be already patched
