    Default how do i change maps on igo8

    hi
    think its just something I don't get
    not really used IGO8,
    got it loaded as 1 of many navagaters on my old navigo (old Chinese gps)
    it works with my old uk maps, I've added new UK & Poland maps to the old maps, but can't see how I get the IGO8 to look at the new maps
    in the tomtom software, I go in to preferances and change the maps, how do I do it in IGO8 ?
    thanks

    First remove old maps (backup before) and then put there new.
    DO NOT ADD files

    I was not clear enough,
    DO NOT ADD different files versions for SAME COUNTRY (only from one/same release)

    For that you don't have to "change" maps.
    Maps for different countries could be in same folder, and there could be as much of them as free memory space in device.
    Just copy files to same "map" folder together with UK maps.

    ........but you still have iGO8.0.0.xxx version??
    If you have this version, doesn't read maps made for iGO8.3.xxxx version.
    And, if I remember correctly, even the license file is different.






    @ Midnight Blues



    Even if he still had the old maps (in to Maps folder), iGO would read the ones with the most recent date.

    Thanks for noticing it is old iGO8.
    You are absolutely right.
