No. There is no problem installing new maps on your unit. You just need the unique product code supplied when you buy them. Combine that with the device code of your hardware at a tomtom website (www.ttcode.com) and it generates an activation code to get the maps working.

You can't blame TomTom for trying to protect their intellectual property by using access codes.

In addition the licence states that the software can only be installed on one sat nav system at any one time - if you transfer it you have to delete it from the other unit.


"software can only be installed on one sat nav system at any one time"
"if you transfer it you have to delete it from the other unit"

Surely removing the SD card from one unit and passing it over is in fact removing the software from one system?

As a relatively newcomer to this site I also have to agree with some of the earlier comments with regards to what amounts to a blatantly rude discourteous initial reply.
Which is not just contained to this post from some of the mods.

What the hell is wrong with the mods on this site?
The guy is a newbie, cut him some slack for gods sake.
He came here to use the forum to ask questions, because he doesn't know the answers. THATS WHAT THE FORUM IS FOR, have you forgotten?
He wasn't aware it was illegal.
I know people ask the same questions and you obviously get fed up replying the same message, but if so, dont answer, let someone with more patience explain.

Remember: We were all newbies at some point

Congrats to the people who gave a proper reply
Pocketgps, I think you need to re elect some of the Mods, this is happening to often (or at the very least, slap a few wrists)

I have a company car, and my wife has her own. I have a Go 700 which I normally use in my company car. However, if my wife needs to navigate somewhere during the week, I simply let her use the 700, and I do without it. (My car knows the way to work and back without satnav.) Is this breaking the conditions of the EULA?

Yes, buy your own.

Which is surely the only answer required to the question.

How often do the mods intervene? Not very often, you usually only see their names when they are offering good advice to help someone with a problem.

Not if you read the EULA, the software is licenced to be installed on ONE device, which it is. Like Windows on a computer, MS would have no problem if the computer had multi users, as long as the Software is not pirated and used on several devices.

I can't understand why all this bickering has started, maybe the hot weather.

If people don't agree with the EULA's, don't use the software. If you don't like a particular site, no one is forcing you to use it.

Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing What a load of crap, I agree 1 or 2 of the mods do help, but there are some who dont.

All of these lessons in morality are coming from the folks here who assist you in breaking Britain's traffic laws. Is there a double standard going on?

Maybe 'I disagree with what you say' would have been nicer.

How does having a Speed Camera Database assist you in breaking the law? Surely when you get a warning you slow down, in effect making you keep within the law. Using your logic you could also say the police/councils assist you breaking the law by having camera warning signs and painting the camera a high visibilty yellow.

Anyway, I thought these Forums were to assist people with problems.

This started off by asking is there a way round the problem of getting maps to work. The reply was Buy your own. Problem solved.

Then I guess radar detectors also exist to keep us honest. Why then are they banned in most jurisdictions?

I think it is naive to not think that most people downloading the speedcams are doing so because they are driving too fast and they want to reduce the risk of getting caught.

So the person concerned was travelling on Wednesday. He must be there by now, with or without maps.

I guess I'll 'Stop watching this topic'. :P
