    No need to do a bump after 9 minutes!!!! People don't spend 24/7 roaming these forums.

    Now, please explain the situation you are encountering.........

    What do you mean you have trouble opening the maps (and what maps [plural] are installed and where? Internal or sd card? And where did you get the maps from? TomTom?

    Did you download it using Home from TomTom? If not, where did you download it from? What site? Or, to put it another way, any maps not gotten from TomTom or on an official sd card from TomTom are hacked maps and, as such, any discussion about them is inappropriate here (read the announcement at the top of every forum).

    So, please clarify the status of the maps.

    Connect your unit to Home. Click on Add maps. Purchase the one you want. Once downloaded, Home installs it on the unit.

    The latest application is 8.351. Tap the satellite bars on your unit to see what you have.

    Connect the unit to Home. Update my Unit. A new application should be offered. Accept only that and download and install. Disconnect the unit properly from Home (use Home's Device Disconnect icon on bottom right). Reconnect to Home to see if another application is offered (depending upon how old your current app is, you may have to go through this sequence a few times till 8.351 is offered and you install it).

    Don't worry about the other values. Your application version shows 8.351 and that is the one you want.
