    Re: Which map

    Ive used the compatibility chart, which is why I know I have 3 uk maps too choose from. But my question is how do I know which is the better map? Is it purely the bigger file size is the better map?

    PLEASE........you'll do yourself good to completely forget the falacy that larger
    sized maps are better.

    TT mfg's many different pieces of hardware, and those units also may
    have different OS's. Thus, there "HAS" to be numerous maps to
    accomadate the multitudes of model numbers.

    It's a real simple senario, as soon as you accept this fact,
    your'e miles ahead of those unwilling to wise up

    Re: Which map

    the answer was it depends on your hardware and navcore so if you have navcore 7913 then choose a map which will work with it, look down the column for 79xx then across to a map which has a tick, simples.Hint you wont find many cos you have an older navcore and depends on how much memory your unit has, less memory = choose map with less bells and whistles.

    Toss a coin to choose 3417 or 3419.

    lol pretty much what gbrush1 said. I know you are are frustrated and that is understandable. It's hard to give you a straight answer without knowing which unit you are using and what functionality you have. If you have computer speech or speech recognition the obvious choice is 3391. However if you don't have either option or no what they are you are left with the other two maps which offer the same functionality....this is where you call heads or tails.
