I agree that the iGo software is very good.
When I bought my unit they cost rather more than the current sub 40 mark. I was misled (now feel conned) because it appeared that the comparatively low pr ...

Just to add to Robert's excellent reply.

I have just received a refund from TomTom for a Pro Truck 5150 that they persuaded me to have temporarily in return for a Trucker 5000. It was supposed to b ...

I no longer use the Nozatec I bought since I discovered that the maps/software were pirated versions.

When I was using it, however. I had a number of different, intermittent hardware problems and I ...

This issue has now been resolved. Speed cameras updated.
Yes, it was resolved this afternoon, but not always straightforward.

My update didn't work until I had run CCleaner as it appears that MyDr ...

There is currently a serious error with TomTom speed camera updates. Their "helpful" posting on their own forum on Tuesday said:
We're currently experiencing a technical issue due to which you may ge ...

From what I've seen elsewhere I'm dubious whether an older .ftr file actually works anyway. I'm afraid the absence of the .ftr file appears to be because the devices sold to many of us rely on pirated ...

I've heard, today, of another Xgody 718 unit being delivered to the purchaser with no .ftr files installed or available for download.

This was even after the purchaser questioned the seller and qua ...

There still seems little excuse for not including the FTR file in their map set (even if it doesn't work)
Given the ridiculous responses I and others had regarding the Nozatec two months ago when the ...

It would appear from other forums that the problem of missing .ftr files, and unsuitable files generally, is not confined to Nozatec but affects other brands as well.

Looks like NNG/Naviextras may ...

Considering igo is the best part of 60 for eu car data on ios then I'm not exactly shocked if that is that case
When many of us bought the units, 2 years or so ago, they cost quite a bit more than t ...

I've had correspondence elsewhere which virtually proves 100% that the Chinese devices are not (as so many of us thought) cheap because of cheap hardware but cheap because the software is pirated.

My settings are for a motorhome, 6.75m long, 2.5m wide and 3m tall. I suppose the iGo and Garmin software tolerances are just that bit more sophisticated.

Artics (and coaches) do use the road but i ...

I had a look at both Aponia and Mapfactor, using a destination that I normally use to test routing.

Both took me down a road (B6105) which I would avoid in a large vehicle (and which is avoided by ...

Thanks Alix.

I had a quick look but need to look in more detail as I couldn't see, at first glance, whether the deals include lifetime map updates or whether it is possible to add sets of user POIs ...

A number of members of a motorhome forum are owners of NozaTec units bought from Navibuzz. We recently discovered that they are not keeping to their promise of supplying lifetime map updates. The late ...
