  • zip or delete the licenses folder

see if you have map zones for your country.
Also tomtom is active on the these kind of issues.
See if someone else has reported this issue on tomtom
forums. If not post there this should be easily resolved. I was offered a map zone, with no cost.

I had screwed everything up trying to make enough room on tomtom but no luck . problem was I deleted map thinking everything ok trying for the new map update .(no go ) luckily found site where it told you where to look for downloaded maps and I was able to get tomtom working again .reloaded the last map . so much for lifetime updates .

Micro SD card makes life easier

I added a 4 GB micro card to my 1515 when I got the low memory warning. I have the USA/Mexico/Canada map as well as Europe. Between the 2 almost 8 gb. So with operating system it gets tight. now I have 1 map on device and other on SD card with plenty of room for all the poi's I get from here.
