    Guide Tomtom Truck and fixing limited space problems

    Although I now provided a few Truck editions suitable for 2GB devices, it might be time to hand the work over to everyone that needs the map faster or with other modificatios.
    Since the procedure is pretty straight forward I will just sum it up in a few easy steps.

    Before you start:
    Make sure you have the complete Truck map and of course that a meta code is available.
    You also need a full featured country map from within the coverage of the Truck map - either the country you mostly drive or just something small like the DACH map.

    How to make the map small enough:
    Firstly be aware that all these mods will cause some negative effects too, like no POI's, different visibility of park and industrial area and other minor things.
    All that won't affect the pure Truck navigation though...
    Ok let's get going, shall we?
    1. If not done unpack the downloaded maps into corresponding folders on your hard drive.
    2. Create another folder to store the smaller Truck map in.
    (of course you could just extract what you need, but simply copy and delete is easier for most users)
    3. Copy all files from the original Truck map into the new folder - your working folder from now on.
    4. in the working folder delete all cspeech files as well as the following files:
    crpoi.dat
    poi.dat
    cphoneme.dat
    5. from your single country map copy the following filesinto the working folder:
    borders.dat
    citymap.dat
    citymap.met
    faces.dat
    faces.met
    Confirm to overwrite existing files!

    If you still have enough room left you can add the crpoi.dat and poi.dat files from the single country map to get POI's of your area,
    add the csspeech file for your language,
    or simply add some music
    Be aware that especially the 32mb devices will need some free MB on the storage to perform properly!
    If you fill up until you only have less than 10mb left you most likely will get into trouble during navigation.
    Since this is all a last resort option I would advise to just leave it with the above and not to use spoken street names of the whole POI collection, after all it will also reduce the performance on low end devices.

    You certainly will NEVER get any truck maps in there if that's what you're looking for.
    You have a couple of choices, buy another second hand device with an SD card slot or get your soldering iron out & read up here:- [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    Either you want/need a Europe Truck map which will plan your route according to your vehicles weight/dimensions etc or a standard (regular) car map.

    If you do buy another device I would suggest a 520/530/720/730 as these can easily handle the 4GB card you will need for the truck map without needing to play with bootloaders etc (and of course can also be used for the car with a different car map or even just switching the profile of your vehicle in the truck map to "car")
