Hi, Just been looking at prices for live services for my tt950 live. Some say Amazon is cheapest but when I looked just now it was 50 on there. So I looked further and found a company selling it for 34.99 for 12months,
http://www.haqtech.com/Products/768-TomTom-LIVE-Services-12-Months-Pre-Paid-Subscription-Card.aspx
Is this company reputable and any good?.

Derrick

UPDATE!
Now I see the price has gone up to 39.95 since yesterday. So while I was waiting for some-one to tell me if that company was reputable I missed out on the cheaper price! Should have got in then!. He who hesitates...........

Don't know about the link you posted, but keep an eye on Amazon. Yesterday I checked and they were quoting 34.95GBP but have jumped today to the price you mentioned - time for watching the changes - which can be more frequent than daily.

haqtech looks pretty bloody dodgy to me!

1 feedback from 1 customer on Amazon and that's a 1* (lowest possible)

FWIW, I bought my renewal on ebay, from someone who sells lots of them. The key is that TomTom will set the RRP, and then sell them at, say, 30 to the retailers. The retailers then give up their margin to sell it cheap. If someone is stupid enough to sell for 5 profit, that's their problem and your gain.

The key is that you get a small folded card with a plastic card in, which has a COVERED serial number. One of those scratch-off things. If it is already uncovered, you've been sold a pup, but I doubt that this would happen for most people selling multiple items.

I just renewed mine for 34.99 from Amazon - got a sealed blister pack with the card in and it worked fine.

i dont get the "live" thing, not on mine, but if you get a warning that there is a hold up and let TT recalculate the route to avoid it, surely everyone else who owns a TT will have been given the same info and you just end up creating another hold up as traffic is redirected to avoid the original jam.,

I suppose you wont all go the same way but if your not on a motorway then your on a "A" road or similar that will be a 30 mph limit and if your lucky you might just get there a little earlier than sitting in a bit of traffic.

Is it really worth the 40 a year, oh yes sorry your saying its 34 now but just wait till next year when TT bump up the price to whatever it wants.

the 50.95 is from an Amazon reseller, which turns out to be the same haqtech outfit from the 1st post.

My only experiences so far of being "re-routed" did not exactly inspire confidence.

1st: The reason the primary route was at a standstill was that the alternative route (itself a fairly busy road) which the TT tried to send me down was closed due to an accident. It had clearly been closed for some time as there were police roadblocks out, but TT Traffic was blissfully unaware.

2nd: IQroutes chose a cross country route to avoid a section of the A1, presumably due to "time of day" journey times. Unfortunately the route rejoined the A1 with a right turn at a small T-junction, not a manoeuvre to be recommended. Could have been waiting there for hours!

Any update on the latest best price as mine is ending soon.
I have a 540 and wonder weather to trade in and update to a new model.

I see a shopping channel had the 1000 with 2 years live services and 50 refund on old unit going for 249.

Worth every penny. Sometimes we get outrages and do I miss it when it's down.
As for going with others to avoid the problem it hasn't as yet lead me into other traffic problems.

But what percentage of the vehicles in the jam have TT HD? Quite a small proportion of them I suspect, so the problem is valid, but pretty hypothetical Rolling Eyes
