If French danger zones are as (IN)accurate as TomTom speed cameras in UK, I wouldn't want anything to do with them.
TT Home tells me my Carminat map is not up to date and urges me to join MapShare and download all the lovely corrections. No thank you!!
Speed cameras downloaded over the air? Would that possibly make them even slightly accurate. No thanks!!
For me, one of the worst omissions from the built in Carminat is the ability to "Operate my Carminat" in TomTom Home (Having said which, retaining Home as opposed to My TomTom is a plus!! Now there's a thought - TT Home a plus ).
Does anybody buy a vehicle for the satnav model it uses? But I certainly wouldn't have paid the Renault list price to have Carminat installed (it came as standard in the model I specced, but I didn't spec satnav at several hundred pounds more than my GO model).
Existing customers getting upgrades and updates? Don't hold your breath. Your first sentence about TT treating us as second class has some merit, but to be honest I think TT has lost the plot with all its models - they've been dumbing down and adding irrelevancies for the last five years.
