    My original Western Europe map which included UK & Ireland has been upgraded via TOMTOM. The new upgrade as a bigger map perhaps, I now longer have UK & Ireland available. how do I switch or change maps in order to access my original UK map/customers before the upgrade.
    I believe there is a back up copy somewhere in my PC TomTom backup files I do hope some one out there can help!!


    Thanks

    On your device, you should have a setting of Manage Maps-->switch maps.

    Also, make an Explorer, not Home, backup of your unit's contents. See here:

    I'm not clear when you reference your customers. Do you mean by use of a custom poi category you have set up or favourites? If either of these, the data is kept in a file called mapsettings.cfg which is found in the specific map folder on your device. So, copy that file from the backup to the new specific map folder when you upgrade.

    Thanks for quick response.
    As a service engineer and extensive travel in western & Central europe I am totally dependent on my TomTom. Following an essential upgrade, my UK map files became archived.
    As per your advise I will carry out in next few days.
    Thanks again
