Hi all

I have a via 135 with a 930 map and also bought tomtom android a while back for the phone (which I use on the motorbike) which had the maps 945 on it.

It has occurred to me that actually it would be better to have the more up to date maps on the via in the car. so is there a way of swapping the maps over? I know how to load the files on the phone and the post :

http://uk.support.tomtom.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/10533/~/how-do-i-manually-install-a-map-on-my-device%3F

implies that I can load maps manually onto the via.

so is there anything to stop me "swapping" the maps over at all?

Thanks in advance

Maps are "tied" to the device they were purchased for and cannot be swapped between them

Oh ok,

That's a
that's a real pain as I bought the via off ebay for £70 and to update it TomTom want nearly£50 there's little wonder people turn too torrents etc.

still its my own fault for not doing my research properly.
