I'm considering buying one of these gadgets for my birthday in the near future... Can anyone tell me if it is feasible to copy S.D. Cards that are used in them? I have relatives in Germany who have access to German maps only. It seems as if I will have access to U.K. maps only. Unless of course we purchase additional S.D. Cards. Is it possible to copy to a blank S.D. Card if there is such a thing? Additional maps of other countries look to be just as expensive as the "Tom Tom One" itself!! ..Bingalau..
"yes, you can copy them, I just got a bigger card for mine and just dragged all the contents onto it."
It might be true you can backup or copy your maps to a bigger card and then use them in the TomTomOne they came from but can you then swap the card into another TomTomOne? This is what Bingalau wants to do and what i believe you can't do. As 961 says the card will be locked to your unit. Copying the card to a bigger card or for a backup will work because you use the "copied" card in the same unit. It might not work in a different unit. Otherwise you could copy the cards amd sell on e-Bay.
Bingalau I'm afraid you have to realise the reason they cost so much to buy is because they cost so much to make.
Incidentally i have seen a few threads in other forums where people have bought SatNav on eBay only to find a copied card inside which wouldn't work.
