    So we know going forward, "GH" serial indicates OP owns an old XL IQRoutes2, 1GB internal memory, and NO SD or uSD card support, so he's going to be out of luck for new maps anyway. 980 is likely the end of the road.

    @poyzy
    There are no 'free' maps available for TomTom units. Unlike Garmin, where one can add 3rd party maps such as an OSM (Open Street Maps) map, this is not the case for TomTom units.
