I thought the whole point was that the custom menu DID work on the Start models? (as reported and described on THIS forum too). But that TT stopped it working on the next software update.

As I understand it, GpsPasSion say this is a new work-around that works on the latest software release.

Of course, if true then that means this too may be blocked "accidentally" in a future update and we'll be playing cat'n'mouse with hacks until such time as the new models that lack file level access arrive Confused

It is all down to sheer greed but TomTom may come to rue their decision when customers desert them.

I have just ordered a Tom Tom XL live Europe. I thought this did not have the simplified menu as in the XL IQ2. Have I got this wrong?

Only the Start, Start 2, XL IQ 2 and XL IQ2 Live are affected, if yours is not a '2' version then you're OK.

Thanks for the reply.
I cannot see any '2' version mentioned, but I cannot see any mention of XL IQ2 Live on Tom Tom's list of products on their website.

Hmm, on their car navigation page, here I cannot see any mention of '2' on their XL 'LIVE' devices either Confused

It maybe that the LIVE devices are not affected and I've got my wires crossed.

Well, if they provide a way for YOU to sell your POI through their store, then this will be acceptable. Otherwise I've bought my last TomTom device.

It is obviously a move to protect their speed camera business, but it is simplistic and naive. After all, I already pay for Live so they get their camera money. Why must they stop me also having other POIs too?

Perhaps the most useful POI warning I have is for a set I made myself of service stations. This means that the satnav sounds a special noise when we are approaching services, and we can then judge whether the kids are going to need the toilet. But no, TomTom know better so want to remove this facility.

Perhaps I'll start using iPhone satnav instead of a new device in the future. One that is open.


I'm glad I bought a Garmin Nuvi recently if that's the case.
I like your idea of service stations though, matthewj, ; I travel a lot on the M6/M74 and would find that pretty useful too (as I often get 'carried-away' and drive right past them, even though I've seen the signs)!

Making jokes about dementia? I do hope no one replies to you...and that in the future you become one of the unfortunate third of elderly people who suffer from the disease.

Shame on you. You should be banned.

a bit over the top me thinks...?! plus surely wishing dementia on someone is as bad, if not worse, than a 'joke' about it in the first place?!
