    Welcome to TTF.

    You should not have to as map updates overwrites existing files.

    That said, PLEASE make an Explorer, not Home backup prior to doing the map download.

    You will probably find your favourites, recent destinations and other stuff gone with the map upgrade and often copying the mapsettings.cfg file from the map folder of your backup rectifies the problem
