IF you do get a second one don't try using them both in the car at the same time assuming you have more than one TomTom nav unit to connect them to. Two RDS units do not work well together due to interference, I spent two of three days trying to compare an older version with the new one only to find this out - Mike (Alder)


Noticed this in another thread, Mike. I was proposing to use two different devices with TMC in my vehicle to test which performed better. I presume from your comment, that it is not recommended? Is it just the proximity that causes the conflict and how near would they have to be?

Multi RDS TMC devices in the the same car with TomTom products is what I was quoted against and I would not try using two TomTom RDS devices in the same car at the same time, trust me they won't work effectively.
I am not sure the same EMC related issue affects the Navman devices though - Mike
