It's a pain to download entire europe map just to get the core/basic files. Since I'm in US, I just download the Canada_Alaska release and hacked it. NOTE: turn off wireless and data service when doing this.

You do not have to carry the entire TTS and basic voices, just following this instruction. Note that these come from Canada_Alaska release, so TTS will be only english, french and spanish. For other TTS voices, you will have to do similar hack from release of your region (or near your region); see below.
I've tested with US maps and this hack works fine, post if it works for you. If this doesn't work, you can try the same trick by downloading a small release in same region as what you need and hacked it (rename directory to com.tomtom.europe and change in the files/.metadata.xml)
IMPORTANT: When doing the hack, since you are using different core file from com.tomtom.europe, you must have <size>0</size> in metadata.xml or TomTom will try to connect to internet to download files because it think you do not have it yet. Of course you will get connection problem when trying to connect to TomTom server. This is why you have to "hacked it" using the files from offline download.
