I've also submitted that map correction to Teleatlas for you.


Me too.


Thanks to both.

Still no mapshare on the GO 1000, but hopefully more reports will get this noticed.

I have informed TeleAtlas years ago. and they said they are aware of it, but seem to do nothing about it on any of their maps.

So far, I have not used it in anger, but on a quick check the new road layout at Shawfield stadium and the realigned A730 at this point are still not reflected in this map... Not a problem if you are local, but as it gives totally wrong instructions at several points on the new route it could be very confusing for a stranger... It wouldn't be so bad if this (fairly major) road had not been open for well over a year now.

875, perhaps? Also, the new section of the M74 is shown as a dotted road at the moment - as it is due to open at the end of June, hopefully this will be reflected in the next map.


Froggy, the strange thing is that the realigned road WAS on the map a couple of versions back, but at that time the new section had not been opened... TT then reverted to the old route in the next update, and has stuck with it since. As you say, maybe the opening of the motorway and completion of the junction at the Clyde crossing at the far end of Shawfield might bring correction!

My device is the 1000 , and the map on the device is 865.3243, I have already used the map guarantee service with this map, is anybody on here able to download the new 870 map on the 1000 who has already used the Map guarantee service, if you brought a years worth of map updates for a 950 , have they been transferred across to the 1000 yet . Is this why it's not offering me any new maps yet.

in a nutshell has anyone who has a device like mine since last oct updated their maps to the new 870 maps who has already used their map guarantee service for the 865 maps .

As has been mentioned the London Congestion Zone is now, once again correct it would appear.

That's nice for people who drive in London. How about everyone else?

For the GO 1000 the Europe map download is 3.2GB which I am currently downloading.


Did the download of the 870 map for your GO1000Live EU go OK? I did not think that it was working for that device. Question

I gave up years ago DennisN….The new Weymouth Relief Road was on the 865 map before it was opened, but Prince Charles Poundbury Estate in Dorchester is still missing…
Got a test drive to Ford HQ in Brentwood later today in a new C-Max, will see what else is absent.

You'd expect the new Weymouth road to show quickly - after all, the Dutch will be coming to use it to get to the Olympic sailing next year. In my humble opinion, the Poundbury Estate is ugly enough to warrant being left off all maps for the rest of eternity!! I suppose it's a pain for Whitevanmen, but it has destroyed my faith in his comments on architecture.

For my 550, the new map downlaoded fine and kept my mapsettings - App 9.058 I think. For my Carminat, it downloaded, but dropped my mapsettings - no great problem because I don't bother with POIs on it, so really reset Home and uncheck Lane Images and that about does it.

EXCEPT for one thing - it re-enables the TT speed cameras, which I then deliberately left running, setup with supposed distinctive sounds for different cameras. So brand new map downloaded yesterday, has cameras on the M4 at Swindon and Reading - I was thinking they were the ancient Specs, but I can't swear to it, because although they were warning, I had set different warnings for Fixed, Average and Average Start/End cameras and for the averages on M4 it gave exactly the same warning sound as for fixed! I mean, what happened to Horn, Cuckoo and Cow? In addition to those, it had a good half dozen correct fixed cameras, but worryingly there were four fixed cameras it didn't have - two in London and two in Slough. Not worrying for me, I hasten to add, with CamerAlert on my iPhone, but think of all those poor TT users who blithely accept the current urging to buy the TT cameras for £19.99 and expect to benefit.

I have the same on my GL 1000 on both my laptop and desktop pc's, offers the uk and western europe map as well as the C3PO star wars voice (chance would be a fine thing!).

I think what Andy said on a previous thread about remembering old account information with the same email address is probably correct.


I don't see why I should have to do this just because TT don't know how to run a data center / manage a user database.

Anyway I have created a new account and linked my 1005 to it.

Now I have no updates on offer Sad

An erroneous turn restriction has been fixed, and a roundabout I've been reporting for years is finally there.

You are lucky! Mine is still v850.2827 as, when I tried to update the last map in March, I was told not to as it would brick the device. Crying or Very sad Same advice from TT re the v870.

I have found something new Me Me Me
Driving down the A3 this morning heading into Hindhead and started to go across country until I realised that they have added and are using the new Hindhead tunnel which won't open till July. It looks like the only access to Hindhead centre in the future will be from the southern end of the tunnel.

But still no A228 to the Isle of Grain, even though it's now been open for about 7 years Crying or Very sad
