    Just purchased a My Guide 3218 and all the forums say it can be used with other software such as Tom Tom, Garmin etc.

    Does anyone know how to do this? Where do I get the software, how do I load it onto my device etc?

    Any help appreciated!

    What software do you need; map update? Map for a different country? Extra POIs - if so, do you want general ones or specific to a certain interest - say campsites?

    I have read that you can remove the existing software from this unit and install Garmin, Tom Tom or others. I just don't know how to do this! Hence the questions where do I get the software etc?

    I really need an idiot guide as to how I do this without rendering the unit totally useless.

    Use the Garmin site to get their maps. Google to find how to achieve it.

    I think the OP means that he wants to use a different mapping application on his unit, not just add maps or POIs. In other words, install the TomTom application onto a Garmin unit.

    I have heard this is possible, but I don't know how easy it is. And presumably you would need to use TT maps with the TT app, so you'd need to replace those too.

    What would be the benefit? :confused:
