Just checking my 720 after updating any road changes and I note that I appear to have the maps of Western Europe in both memory locations and only have 132mb left internally. I remember installing the maps on the 4gb SD mem card originally.

Can I delete the internal one or is it better to do the SD card one ?

Make **absolutely** sure the map on the sdhc card is the same as the one on internal. If so, you can delete the one on internal.

Hopefully, your sdhc card is fast enough (class 6+) to keep up with the demands of the processing unit regarding read/writes.

My 720 doesn't let me install Western Europe internally due to lack of space. I have it on SD card and Western Zone on internal memory.

I have the old map which is around 1.8GB. the new one is bigger and the whole of Europe map is over 2 Gb of course... so definitely goes on the SD card

Sorry, I hadn't realised you had an old WE map
I keep the western zone on internal then put all my UK pois and favourites etc on it and all my French ones on WE on the card. It also gives me a map if ever my SD card failed.

And of course allows you to remove the SD when traveling in France... just in case.

I've taken the French cameras off. Hopefully next time I go I'll be able to have safety zone warnings.

But, TomTom Home still wants me to buy its French camera warnings on a promotion.
