How to Get European Maps for My TomTom

Updated February 21, 2017

TomTom is a popular line of navigational systems for all types of automobiles. All TomTom models allow you to upgrade your current maps and download new maps for almost any country in the world, including the European countries. Each TomTom comes with computer software which makes the process of purchasing, downloading, installing and upgrading its maps hassle-free. As long as you have a computer and a high-speed Internet connection, the entire process only takes a few moments.

Connect the TomTom device to your computer using its USB cord.

Turn on the TomTom and let the Home screen pop up on the computer monitor. Click "Backup and Restore" and follow the on-screen prompts to complete the backup process. It's important to have it backed up should something go wrong with the European map installation.

Return to the Home screen and click "Log in." Log in to your account with your user log in information.

Click "Add Maps" from the Home screen and choose the map you want to download. Depending on your TomTom model, you may need to download two or more maps to cover all of Europe. If you only need maps for certain countries, you can find them using the search feature in the top right corner of the map page.

Click "Download" when you find the map you wish to purchase, and follow the on-screen instructions to finish the process. When it's downloaded, the map will be installed on the TomTom device automatically.

Click "Done" and disconnect the TomTom from the computer.
