    Connect to PC. It becomes a drive letter. Open it and make a Windows search for "Ireland" and see if it finds reference and if yes, which folder.

    If your map was six years old maybe it would be a good idea to get a new one anyway.
    There have been many changes in the UK.

    I thought you just updated the maps, not purchase new ones

    If you are talking about mapshare changes, they only alter information on the existing map but will not alter a geographical structure on the map. In other words, any new roads since your map are not added with mapshares. That's why Arno mentioned a new map might be in order.

    To the OP:
    Have you ever done a full backup of your unit? If so, the UK/ROI map will be there in the backup and we should be able to retrieve it.
