Updating tom tom maps
Tom Tom has reached out to customers with older Sat Nav models to inform them their hardware will no receive new map updates."Your maps will become out-of-date and as such navigation will be less accurate," the Dutch firm told customers."It has become clear that some of our older generation navigation devices do not have sufficient resources to run the newest maps and software."Tom Tom has made more than 60 Sat Nav models obsolete.
These will continue to work as they do today, but the map displayed on-screen will become out-of-date and as such navigation will be less accurate.
But, we must not forget that a Tom Tom GPS device is made up of lots of tiny electronic components.
So, when one component fails then it can make the whole device useless.
Some devices come with free map updates included, otherwise there is an additional cost for the maps.
Today navigational technology has come up quite far in terms of the accuracy and device reliability.
Connect your Tom Tom GPS device to the computer with the USB cable that is provided with the Tom Tom GPS device box.
A device will have reached the end of its life when none of these are available any more."Those who have an older Sat Nav from the company are eligible for a discount on a new Tom Tom product.
I am sick & tired of my Tom Tom not updating, or saying the map is corrupted and then my computer (with superfast broadband connection) taking an hour to download the update..to get a message on my Tom Tom at the end to say it still has no maps loaded.
Then there have been problems with inserting an SD card for extra memory and, even after formatting the card and using different sizes, have never worked.) Anyway, one question - is it possible to "do the mother of all resets" and how?
The Dutch navigation company has lowered the price of the GO 620 from £249.99 to £187.49, and the GO 6200 from £339.99 to £237.99. Tom Tom says, “this may be the perfect opportunity to discover what our new range of navigation products has to offer you.”It remains to be seen whether those who have recently been told that their Sat Nav is now obsolete are happy to splash the cash on a new device from the company.
The world is constantly changing – there are new roads, motorways and suburbs built, and changes to infrastructure every single day.
