I have been looking at upgrading my 930 to the 1005. However, the 1005 doesn't com with USA maps. Is there enough free storage space to install the USA map set?

The ability to install additional maps are is not yet an option so it's a moot question.

Keep up at the back! Laughing

You can buy maps for other regions for the models that use MyTomTom now. Have been for a month or two.

See the overview of what is possible now here.

Follow the link for maps at the bottom and it takes you to here and then here..



There won't be enough storage space to fit both maps on simultaneously though You'll need to remove the Europe map before you install the US map. (The Europe map should be available for you to reinstall via MyTomTom on your return (but I would stress this is fairly new territory, I've not personally seen this happen yet).


The trouble with these models is they don't have an SD card slot. If you are not in any hurry for the US maps, it might be better to look at one of the newer ones where the card slot has been returned (although the slot has not been enabled in software yet!) Some of the VIA models have it and the new Go1015 (only announced in Germany so far) has one too.

Or find a "Go 2050 World" which already has European and USA maps installed
