Formatting

Devices connecting to MyDrive Connect:
The first time you insert a new memory card in your navigation device, you are asked if you want the device to format the memory card.

Devices connecting to TomTom HOME:
When you buy a new memory card, you don't need to format the card before installing your maps. New memory cards are formatted to FAT32, which is the correct format for use with navigation devices.
