          select the maps you wish to install or deinstall.

Download via PC:

Please note:
An USB connection is not possible with all SAMSUNG devices in order to use NAVIGON Fresh. Also the option to use an SD card is not provided for all devices. In this case you have to choose "W-LAN" after starting the App.
