    Thank you osiris4isis for your answer, but can you please explain to me something more?

    I am not aware of possibility that I can have two different maps on GPS, I am very OK with HERE maps so I don't need tochange. If I have both files in same folder - which maps are primarily read by GPS? HERE or TomTom?

    As I said I downloaded files for Florida from [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] and there are million files, so for example in map folder I have:

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    in folder building I have:

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    and in folder poi I have:

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    Can I just remove TomTom related files and everything should be OK? Or I would still have not-needed files there?

    Thank you very much for help

    Pick a provider, only use files from that one provider. If you have more than one, then proggy decide which to use (not a good idea) Exception are pois and buildings, if you can't find files for it as same provider as the map you can use from another provider (ie: HERE map with TomTom poi) Some proggy even allow the use of multiple provider's pois. Also you can use previous version of the files (if it's not available in same version as map) You can check what is ok or not under Settings->About->Content. There are around 10 different types of files for each state/country, far short of the "millions" of files you claimed.

    What file you need depends on what capability you want. Read [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
    Minimal is .fbl, everything else is optional. And as I told you, .fds is currently not needed.

    Many questions become very arduous, a lot of time chewed deja vu...Since we have lost all the year of work and effort, many people have no will to answer the same questions again. Me neither. Use a search, please.
