The memory card

About your memory card

A memory card is supplied with your navigation system. It includes a map of your group of countries.

Updates are regularly produced by TomTom, particularly for maps and services like speed cameras. These updates are only available for download by inserting your navigation system's memory card into a computer that is connected to the internet.

Once your new vehicle has been delivered, if a newer version of your map is available within 60 days of first using your navigation device, you can download this map for free.

Important: In order to qualify for the Latest Map Guarantee you need to check if a new map is available within the 60 day period, and you are only entitled to one free map download.
