How to delete additional maps?

"Is it possible to remove previously installed maps for other countries in the system to save SD card space, then just re-install them once one will need it?"

Yes, of course, simply connect your carNAVi via USB to your PC or just use a SD card reader for this, like if you do while installing new maps.

NOTE: Before making changes to your carNAVi we suggest to backup your system by using the carNAVi Backup tool. Follow this link if you haven't installed carNAVi Backup yet.

Open the /Map folder on the SD card using the Windows Explorer or any other file manager and delete the map files you don't need. All additional map files are starting with their respective country code, for example HK for the Hong Kong map, VN for Vietnam, BE (Belgium) or NL (Netherlands) etc. In Windows Explorer you may press and hold the CTRL-Key to select multiple files or the SHIFT-Key to select a range of files.


Alternatively you may use a simple shell command, just open the Command Line Shell, and type DEL G:\Map\NL*.* (where G: is a sample for the drive letter assigned to your carNAVi or SD card).

If you have finished, disconnect the carNAVi and start the navigation software again. The remaining maps will be indexed again automatically. Don't interrupt this process.

Keep your map downloads from the carNAVi Store for your future use. Whenever you need the additional maps again, just reinstall them like usual.
