TomTom GPS units allow users to save maps on a Secure Digital (SD) card. Some users may want to make a backup of their files. In order to do this, the user must copy the information from the SD card. The copying procedure is very basic and does not require any special software. Once you copy the SD card you can save the information to another SD card and you will always have a spare copy of your maps.
