I'm thinking of buying tom tom xxl 550 loaded with NZ maps. My question is ... we are going to England next may or june will there be enough memory in it to download the England Ireland map as some people have told me there is enough while others have said there is not. Hoping some one can advise me correctly.thanks.

Google the size of the TomTom map for UK then how big nz map is and compare with amount of memory the 550 has. ? Does it have a sd card slot ?

A couple of reviews I read it says the 550 has 1GB memory, while the 540 has 2GB.

It should be fine, my cousin has a 550 XXL with US maps loaded, which I believe are something like 600MB. It has 1GB on board (about 870ish usable), so I don't see it being an issue.
