http://uk.support.tomtom.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/6178/kw/clearflash/sno/1 now goes nowhere and as I'm persona-non-grata over there I cannot ask/query/challenge/moan etc about it.

PS, unless mods wish to remove this link, there is always:- http://www.filefactory.com/file/7jt1kbgl7g5j/clear_flash.rar

And they say there is no such thing as a stupid question Twisted Evil

The answer to any question beginning "Why have TT" is - because they can.

Another one is why have TT killed off Home with a forced duff update, can't use Home without the update and the update won't install. Rolling Eyes

Oh all right; my bad for asking such a silly question Embarassed I should know better by now!

Be interesting (not) to hear their reason/excuse/illogicality/asinine reply (if someone could be a4sed to query it on their forum) though Crying or Very sad

PS I'm sure you already know that your TT One V3 512MB + RDS TMC UK&RoI isn't REALLY dead in the water all the time the "other" forums are live & active Wink

I suffered the Home duff update. After many moons, I solved it by uninstalling Home, then downloading it again from TT. I presumed my problem was Mac is not used to crummy software.

Can't use it any more now - my GO520 (the NAV2 model that worked, not the new improved as seen on TV model) has at long last expired. Can't complain for a 14 year old piece of kit that had 73 times the functionality of the latest ones the latest ones.

It is, I'm afraid. The power switch needs a watchmakers screwdriver to switch it on and off and when plugged in during driving, it switches itself off after a couple of hours. Believe me, in desperation I have been doing this for a few months now and I am exhausted by it. It's only because it switches itself off that I am giving up, can't get it back to life whilst driving and can't afford to stop for long enough to administer CPR, got a delivery to make! I've still got the remote in my cup holder out of fond nostalgia. Crying or Very sad

Unfortunately it is. I have managed to salvage the time issue with an add on app but he sat lock is goosed. There may be a workaround by installing unofficial firmware but as the maps are no longer updated it is not really worth the effort.

Have you tried to download QuickGPSfix? My 2004 TT910 is able to continue if I download QuickGPSfix weekly.

QuickGPSfix makes things a little better, it will lock on to generally 3 to 5 sats - 5 being the absolute best with a clear sky - but then will just lose the plot. Problem is of course that I can't download the latest file due to the Home update problem.

To be honest this has now gone into the can't be bothered category. TomTom obviously don't want me to use their devices any longer and I am happy to accommodate them Rolling Eyes
