    Hello, I am a newbie here as well. I just purchased a Tomtom One XL, and I was wondering if it is possible to track a road, such as a Forest Service Road or 4 wheel drive trail, that is not on the standard maps and assign a title to it. Or even maybe driving on a new road that is not on the maps and "map" it on the GPS.

    No. The mapshare technology lets you delete (block) roads, but you can't add new ones. Possibly if you search "hacking" sites you may find something, but the feature isn't built in.

    yes, but in that case mapshare is just a reporting service. you can tell tomtom about a missing road, but cannot add it to your map yourself, only hope it will turn up on a new map version which you have to purchase.
