I contacted TomTom help line and was informed that this in necessary,
so far I have declined to do this, My free update expires tomorrow 28/08/2012.
I feel that it is unjustified to advertise this Sat Nav as covering Western Europe and the UK, when TomTom says that the device memory is too small for Western Europe and the UK maps.
Yours disappointedly T.G. Sinclair
Setup is very easy as the screen prompts you every step of the way. The user guide is surprisingly limited. It just explains a few of the objects on the screen, how to plug it in, how to fix it to your windscreen, and how to connect it to your computer. For everything else you must go to the TomTom website and download the full user guide. Given how much the device does (it does a lot!), and how essential the full user guide is, it's a bit cheap of TomTom not to include it in the box (especially as the box is half-empty).
This is my first satnav, but I found it very easy to use. Basically you get two main options: Plan Route, and Browse Map. When planning a route, you can setup and use a list of favourite destinations, choose a recent destination, choose a point on the map, a point of interest (you can download a huge variety of these for shops, sights, companies and so on), or enter an address. It's all quite logical and easy to do. Once you've created a route, it can start advising you immediately, or you can choose a time when you want it to start. Then just attach it to the vehicle windscreen and away you go.
It does not offer "live" information, such as news about queues or accidents. However, if you find yourself heading towards congestion, you can press the "Avoid Roadblock" button and then tell it roughly how far away the road block is, and it will give a route that avoids the roadblock (congestion, closed road, or whatever).Read more ›
But I managed to get the maps up to date (still worth complaining about as it is a bug TomTom are not fixing)
But even with the most up to date maps TomTom would take me down restricted roads and even take me to wrong postcodes when having typed in the right postcode. For 99% of road users this TomTom is good but when you need to arrive places on time and have multiple stops this TomTom will fail occasionally.
I thought about getting a better tomtom for 170 pounds + 50 pounds per year for live updates but after reading how TomTom have stopped making quality products within the last 3 years I decided to go for the 90 pound garmin with free life time map and live updates. Very happy with that so far.
Speaks street names, excellent lane assist, speed cameras, timely instructions before and at a turn and uses IQ technology to calculate the fastest route for the time of day. If you don't like the route you can recalculate an alternative, travel via one stop and if there's an obstruction you can enable a road block feature to re route your journey. Has a night mode button to dim the screen at night to make it easier on the eye and less distracting.
You need to download tomtom home to your PC and then you can operate the device from the computer with automatic updates. Then you can add up to 48 favourites and unlimited points of interest without phaffing around in the car at the last minute.
Some reviewers have suggested that when updating maps it doesn't all fit within the 2GB capacity but it does! It won't leave much spare capacity but you can remove unnecessary foreign voices which frees up a lot of space. Tomtom home also allows you to back-up your device which I did after the first map update so I always have the full data before customising my options. If you remove anything from your device using tomtom home then you can use tomtom home again to reinstall it at a later date with the touch of a button.Read more ›
