    Hello i am new on here and my problem is ; i have the Start 25 with Central Europe maps i've just download the Eastern Europe, i live in Germany and will drive next week to Greece the problem with it is that into the navi i see two separate maps Central and Eastern and it seems that i can not place the route that i want (from Germany to Greece). will i have in the middle of my route to stop somewhere(in Slovenia or Kroatja) and change the map on in it to eastern Europe ?
    or there is a regulation for it ?
    i don't find it so ''good'' to work on this way :(

    Thanks and best regards, IMG_0975.JPG

    That device requires MyDrive, not Home 2. Get it at tomtom.com/getstarted

    Does your device find any locations in Germany using the Eastern map selection.

    Drive to-->Street and Address-->next screen make sure that the Germany flag is selected, then enter the city. Then the street and number.

    If you wait till you have a gps lock on the device, it should find your Home location in Germany. Then, if you Drive to-->Street and Address, you should be able to select Greece as the country prior to the city in Greece.

    Does your car have, by chance, a heated (athermic) windshield?

    Just to be sure, unplug the unit and take it out in a clear space, turn it on, and wait for about 10 minutes and see what happens.
