    hello, just ordered a mega xl after my garmin edge 1000 screen broke.

    i understand that the xl does not have a base map and map sections need to be downloaded.  the gps root website only allows a small section of the uk to be selected at a time.  I want all the UK on the unit if possible.

    1 can this be done?

    2 if several 'map tiles' are needed, will they be selected automatically?

    3 if not selected automatically, how do i change map tiles?  can't see anything on how to do that.

    Hi Andrew,

    1. No, this cannot be done. As I alluded to above, the file size "can increase exponentially depending on the size of the area and the density of the roads in the area. It may be easier to create several smaller maps and avoid unnecessary areas that you've no intention of riding." That is to say, dense areas like London would, by themselves, push the individual file size limits.

    2. Yes, it will seamlessly switch from one to another. You won't have to do anything.

    3. See #2

    Hi Andrew,

    A few minutes ago, I went into a little detail over in this thread.

    The Mega devices have 64mb of storage that maps and activities share. There's no limit to the number of maps you can upload, but depending on the size of the map files, you will run into a storage space limit at some point.
