TOM TOM HELP PLEASE!

I've just bought a tomtom one v3 euro, I've gone to get the latest maps from the tomtom website and it says I need to delete nearly 1gb of data before I can install the new maps.
Thing that worries me is when I go to delete the 'old' maps it tells me I shouldn't as the device won't work properly.
Anyone got one of these if they could advise me would be much appreciated,thank you as I don't want to end up losing all my data!

Can u back up your data up first? There should be software that came with your satnav or query it on tomtom website (u will not be the 1st to have this problem)

I'm trying to do that but just after the backup starts my computer freezes (good old vista?).

Try it on another PC. Or just view the contents of the hard drive in the tomtom and copy them to another folder on your PC. Then if things go amuck you can always copy them back.

Yeh,first backup your device,dont worry if it freezes when backing up,it is a long process,takes about 40 minutes to back it up,so even it freezes,after 40-45 mins you will have complete backup.It is not only on vista,xp pretty much the same.
