Default TOMTOM 7 Maps available on www.tomtom.com

I just saw on www.tomtom.com that you now can purchase maps of western europe for the Diamond for TomTom 7.

I bought the maps for a Go and use it on the Dimaond. Works good. However the version for the Diamond is half of the size, and with just 4GB internal memory this is a issue to change to the official maps for the Diamond. I just don't want to spend antoher 59 Euro for that. Do you think TomTom would exchange the maps if I write an e-mail to them?

Does anybody know why there is such a huge difference in memory for these maps. Go=1.6GB, TT7 = 800mb

good news. I guess we'll see more maps for other countries as well. don't know why Go maps are smaller though...but I guess smaller is better because it means we don't use as much storage space
Telstra HTC Touch Diamond (DIAM 130) with unsigned Hard SPL OliNex (here) Shine On 2.4 Light ROM with dynamic pagepool by panosha (here) and I use 1.00.25.08 radio (here). This radio gives the best signal strength of all radios currently available when using Telstra's Next G network in regional areas - signal strength is on a par with phones from LG and Samsung that Telstra give the "regional tick".

Yes, i prefer for sure the smaller verison...but already bought the one for the Go which works good on Diamond, but would be nice having the extra space...

No I think this is a reasonable price. For me, it's worth that.

Considering you can get them for free in minutes, yes, it's really expensive

I just bought the Diamond maps for western Europe (59euro) but my tom tom home does not recognize that I have bought them = I cannot download them anywhere.
Does anyone have the same experience or maybe knows a fix?

Same experience! I haven't found any solution though.
