which map is best for my device?
A very common one and the same question: which map is best for my device? (What the best map Belarus \ Ukraine \ Romania ...) or something similar.
You will be surprised how easy it is, to determine their own, without straining the brain anybody simple question.
To begin determining what kind of area you need: All of Europe or its individual parts (or country)
1-If you have a soft 9022 and higher, just look at the table of compatible maps with the most functions.
This is yours. And you are limited only by the amount of internal memory of your device (or the size of SD cards)
2-If your software is lower than 9022, also see compatibility list, but picking up a map compatible with your software.
3 If you do not know, in which map is your region (country), and a separate map does not exist:
Find a table (regardless of the release of the country-in maps are virtually unchanged)
-Include the brain and to think, in what area that you wanted the country (or, in some maps it may be)
-Connect the TomTom to a computer-run TomTom Home
-Click on the map icon = buy = (Do not worry, as long as you have not got the purse from his pocket)
-Before you open a window with a list of maps

-If the map is not required in the list of maps offered by TomTom (eg you have an account at Home from Europe, and you want a map of America) is simply
select in the window = recommended / all = name options = all =
, Find a map, similar to what you need, click on the Read first = and = normally see everything:
Do you have the correct country, what percentage of coverage, the number of the desired map and its size.
If you fit all the parameters (except the coverage percentage, it will be the same in all the maps of this release), you find the latest map of the desired area.
If you are not satisfied with something (map size, the area of its action), just repeat the same steps with the other proposals you maps.
That's all. Map is found on their own, with little effort and without the children's questions on the forums.

I have a TomTom XL and now TomTom Home says its an obsolete GPS and it cant upgrade anymore it's maps, so now i can't use the technic of simulate buying of a new map and see what map version it suggests.
With the compatible chart i didn't understand how to choose the correct map to put in my XL.
Its aplication is 9.170.734651.2 and im actually on map Europe_1GB_South_910_4952
What is the easiest way to know the best map to put in my GPS now?

If i understand, the correct maps for my XL are 1005.8763 / 1005.8764 / 1005.8765
I can choose any of that 3 maps and they will work right?
I also have a Renault Carminat. In that case i have to use the maps shown in dark green color right? 1005.8760 / 1005.8762
It's correct? I understand you know it all about that chart but you can understand it is a little confusing with many navcores and map versions and extras to choose the correct one to use right?

Depending on which XL you have I would like to suggest to use 9.510 as navcore
Do you have a XL with an SD slot, not a problem, but when you've only 1GB or 2GB you're very limited in your choice of maps
Also depending on which Bootloader in use, when you have an SD slot, a Bootloader update is maybe needed
Tell us more about your XL, please.

If you look at
Regarding TT Home, you should still be able to see your map(s). Here is how you can do that, even though your unit is extinct
So we wait in antisipation on your reply @zimonOne day, someone might make things work perfectly before release. Sadly not in my or your lifetime. At least by finding problems and sorting them, we are still alive.

Thank you very much for the explanation. My one XL is the one without SD card. I've updated it to lastest navcore 9.510 and already installed on it latest Iberia_1005_8763 and everything is going fine.
My real doubt is in choosing the right map from that chart but for example, if i need iberia and i have my one xl at 9.510, i can search in thread finder Iberia_8763/8766/8767/8819. I see that i can use any of that maps in my one XL, but the 8763 is the best because its the most complete map. am i right choosing this map?

If it's the One with just only 1GB you're quite right that Iberia 1005_8763 is the best option for you at this moment
It must even be possible to add France 1005_8763 too and Benelux 1005_8819
Think smart and there is more possible, even with less memory.
