    Default How can I install an Africa map

    I have the Central_and_Eastern_Europe_955_6746 map installed and running on my android device without problems. Now I would like to use my Africa_955_6746 map.
    I moved my Europe folder out of com.tomtom.europe/files and copied the Africa folder as a subfolder of com.tomtom.europe/files. Inside there are the files plus the IMG subfolder. Before that I generated an Africa-100455.meta.dct file using TT_AndroidKG_By_DFoX_v9.4.
    But tomtom doesn't recognize the map and reports "No connection..." instead. What am i doing wrong?

    If you are trying to run an African map within a Europe app you need to use the European device ID and not the African one.

    The African map folder should be in the same "files" folder as the European one was.

    Instead of or as well as, it doesn't matter.

    I'm sorry, I had accidently installed the 950.6558 version instead of the 955_6746. After copying the right version tomtom wouldn't start the Europe map anymore, either. I then edited the .metadata.xml:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    <santorinicontent>
    <contentlist>
    <bundle>
    <bundleid>com.tomtom.europe</bundleid>
    <content_version>14</content_version>
    <min_app_version>1</min_app_version>
    <download>
    <url location="file://mnt/sdcard/tomtom/com.tomtom.europe"/>
    </download>
    <size>0</size>
    </bundle>
    </contentlist>
    </santorinicontent>
    and this did the trick. At start tomtom gave me a choice to select a map (which it will do so only at the first start).
    Thank you anyway.

    @Mahmoudsa,
    This is a TomTom post not streetpilot.

    As your app does not appear to have a map changer you will be given a choice of maps if you delete the "currentmap.dat" file.
    (Of course this only works if you have more that one map installed).

    Oh, that is some useful piece of information! All you have to do is delete the "currentmap.dat" file to change maps. Thank you!
