    does sound odd! Have you selected the right unit when registering? Just to make sure it doesn't think you have a tom tom one, rather than XL?

    I must admit, though I prefer to use tom tom - I have never yet been able to update any maps, as every time I try, the website appears to 'crash' and tell you to come back later- I am of the mind that they plan it that way!

    Hi some of the TT's have internal memory only and can't be upgraded, you should however be able to get a reduced size map which fits. I can get maps for mine which fit on a 1 gig card, but there isn't much room for anything else on a 1 gig card, so I upgraded to a 2gig, and that may be the problem, to many poi files.

    Having read about the problems people have had up grading maps on TT it was with bated breath, mains electricity and a strong wi-fi signal that I set about doing so on mine...

    ...it took a long time but all went ok...:thumb:
