    Hello,

    I need to change the map on my XL Live from Western Europe to US&Canada.
    But when I connect my TomTom with TomTom Home, I do not get the option to change or replace the map.

    Please can you let me know the procedure?

    Thanks,

    Charles

    Do you HAVE both maps installed? If so, on the unit: manage maps-->switch maps.

    Thank you. No i do not have both maps installed as i cannot upload the US one at the moment. I do not get this option on TomTom Home.
    Shall i go on another site to upload it?

    I just noticed you have said you have a XL LIVE model. So I'm assuming you got that in Europe as it isn't available in Canada (and the LIVE functionality won't work here).

    So..........

    Do you have a Western_Europe map and want to BUY a USA_Canada map?

    (The only legit source for all tomtom maps is tomtom itself).

    Then, connect to Home. Add Voices/Maps and carry through the screens to select the USA_Canada map.

    This one may do:
    https://www.tomtom.com/en_ca/shop/maps/#deviceSelected=ONE%20XL&mapSelected=USA%20&%20Canada

    But..........

    It's best to put the first 2 characters of the serial number of your unit in this screen first:
    https://www.tomtom.com/en_ca/shop/maps/#deviceSelected=Via LIVE 1535

    Thern proceed.........

    However, I don't know whether your model has a sd card for additional storage. If not, you may have to copy your existing European map folder to the computer (and a folder named maps, if there) and then delete from the unit to make room for the new map.
