Changing a Map Zone (TomTom HOME)

Click here to see which products/categories this applies to.

This FAQ contains information that may not be applicable to your device. More information.

Note: Map zones are not available for all maps.

The size of our maps increases all the time as we add detail, such as new roads. We add more detail to make the maps more accurate and more useful.

You may find that when you buy a new map or update an existing map, the map you have chosen does not fit on your navigation device. To solve this, TomTom HOME can offer you smaller sections of some maps, called map zones. A map zone contains the same level of detail as a complete map.

When you buy or update a map, you may be able to choose a map zone using TomTom HOME. This happens if you cannot fit a complete map on your navigation device.

For an overview of available map zones, see Available Map Zones (TomTom HOME).

Changing your active zone

You may want to select a map zone that includes the countries where you drive most often or a different zone for an international trip.

Note: HOME only downloads the zone you have selected. You are still entitled to use the complete map and can change the active zone in use on your device at any time using TomTom HOME. You can only install one map zone at any time.
