    So I dropped my TomTom on the driveway one night and didn't realize that the card fell out. :(

    Later that night...snow. :( :(

    Early that morning...snowblower. :( :( :(

    Next result...a mangled maps card. Sucks!!! :mad: :mad: :mad:

    What are my options here? I have tried it in many computers to see if it's active at all, but it's fried. Can I buy a used US+Canada card on ebay or somewhere? What about downloading map info to put on a blank SD card?

    Thanks for any advice you can provide. I bought my 510 refurbished for cheap, so I'm hoping to not spend a fortune here! :eek:

    I think, If you made a backup of your tomtom you can copy the backup to a new card and be back in business.
