    Re: Upgrade TOMTOM Go XL with 2GB(internal) to 4GB

    For the older models there was a method.
    First upgrade the bootloader .(very important)
    And then you have to open the TT and with a bit of soldering an micro SD adapter it was possible



    This is in a one I found this picture a few years ago.
    Al credits go to this person who did this

    Good luck

    I have all the pictures to modify the TT, I do not know if they can be useful: I ask if it is possible apply this change to TT One XXL (Europe) and TT540 S / TM (Unites States) (with 5" screen). Are internal printed circuit board similar ?

    Good idea to change title, but i think - to move this to FAQ section - a good idea too

    This is just a little addendum to anyone thinking about soldering. Remember with copper prices going up, a lot of multicored cable is now copper clad aluminium. Try to use copper and unless you are proficient, use multistranded as it is easier to solder. I've fixed too many units recently with solder joints done by people with no experience or expertise
