    help TomTom XL - trip from UK to Germany. Which map/maps best?

    Hi guys. On end of August I want go to Germany from Uk and I want use my old TomTom XL 1GB. I have problem with choosing correct map which can cover whole trip. I already tried 970 7490 - Europe North (No France map), Europe West (No Germany map) Europe Central (No UK map and no enough space for two maps). Can anyone advise me on this matter, please?

    I'm not sure there is a map under 1Gb that covers UK & Germany and is compatible with your navcore (AND has a meta), have a look around here

    No chance of a interrelated map smaller than 1 GB. You can only use a Europe_1GB_West_970_7490 / Europe_1GB_West_971_7669 (482 MB and France included) and a separate D_A_CH_970_7490 (371 MB).
    Create your trip on computer (e.g. with the freeware program Tyre) and make a note of the desired border crossing point to Germany (France-Germany, Belgium-Germany or Netherland-Germany).
    So you can navigate to these points and make there a map change.

    Please, no reply with full-quote, not even for stupid people, who have already forgotten the previous post.

    Thanks everyone. Alfred_ML your suggestion is absolutely right. According to this, I have change a map only once, at the exit from France. This is acceptable. On the map I see a good place for break. I just replace the map of UK and Ireland for map Europe West and add D_A_CH. Simple. Thank you very much.
