To update your TomTom Nav Compatible with Sony XAV with the latest map or to restore the map on your TomTom Nav Compatible with Sony XAV, follow these steps:

Tips before you start

  • A map download can take some time. The length of the process depends on the speed of your Internet connection.

  • Check the version of the map on your SD card to see if you need a map update.

    1. Launch the TomTom app on your Sony XAV.

    2. Tap the screen to show the Main menu, then tap Settings > About.

      The version of the map is listed next to the name of the Map. The latest version of the map of Australia is 930.5611.
  • Check if there is sufficient free space on your computer. You need a minimum of 6GB.

  • Check that your internet connection is stable for the download.

  • Make sure you have an SD card reader.

Downloading your map

  1. Download the map of your region to your computer by clicking the download button below.

    Australia version 930.5611 (01.11.2014). The file size is: 350 MB Download

  2. Extract the map from the downloaded zip file.

    Windows Vista / Windows 7/Windows 8:
    1. Right-click the zip file, and then click Extract All.
