Installing a smaller map with MyDrive Connect.
If you want to install a smaller map on your device, MyDrive Connect gives you the option to install either a Map Zone or a Map Area , depending on which device you have. On this page you can find more information about these options, and some helpful links to more information.
If your device supports maps with 3D buildings but it does not have enough space for the full 3D buildings map, MyDrive Connect will offer to install the same map but with 3D buildings only in a limited area of your choice. Note that you can only have one map area installed at a time.
Map areas are available for the Europe map and the USA, Canada and Mexico map. You can also select to install the full Europe or USA Canada and Mexico map without 3D buildings.
When you have enough space available on your device, you can always change the map area or install the full 3D buildings map. If your device has a memory card slot, you can insert a memory card so there is enough space to install the full 3D buildings map.
The size of our maps increases all the time as we add more details, such as new roads, and 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 device. To solve this, MyDrive Connect can offer you smaller sections of some maps, called Map Zones. A Map Zone contains the same level of detail as a complete map, and they are available for the Europe map and the USA, Canada and Mexico map.
In MyDrive Connect you will see the list of Map Zones available for your map, detailing the country coverage of each zone. You can only have one zone installed at a time.
You can always change the Map Zone or, when you have enough space available on your device, reinstall the full map. If your device has a memory card slot, you can insert a memory card so there is enough space to install the full map.
