    Hi,

    I am looking at buying the Tomtom one GB v3 (without the SD card slot). I may want to add some EU maps to this at a later date - probably just France & Spain (not the whole EU!). Will the tomtom have enough room on the internal memory for these? Or am I better buying the EU version instead?

    Thanks!

    Buy the One XL GB instead and have the flexibility of using a memory card. The larger screen is worth paying more for.

    It is possible to upgrade the software for free online directly from TT in order to run v7, the same as the One Edition 3.

    In addition to my original answer the One v3 has 1gb storage space so it should comfortably be able to accept map upgrades.

    Hi,

    Thanks for your advice. I thought the One GB v3 only had 512mb of storage built in. I think the One EU v3 has 1GB but I will check that before buying!

    You are correct the GB edition does only have 512mb of memory.

    The French map alone occupies 350mb of space so I think you will struggle to fit all that you need on the Regional version. For an additional £30 you are better off buying the Europe edition.
