I apologise if this is already covered elsewhere but I have been keeping a close eye on the forums and if it is it must have slipped past me!

I have seen a few conflicting comments that have just now left me feeling that I havent a clue what is going on!

Does anyone know if there is going to be a "deal" for us loyal tomtom navigator 5 customers on the new maps and software or do we have to stump up the full amount in the same way as a new customer?

TTN6 has been out a while now and I dont know whether to wait longer for some offer to come out or if thats it and I need to buy it again from scratch (which seems a little unfair to me if it is the case).

Thanks guys,

Ian

there is no upgrade.
you will have to buy the full version.

the reason is because v6 only runs on certain hardware and offering an upgrade would allow people with unsupported hardware to purchase an upgrade that they couldnt use.


at least thats TTs excuse.

Well TT havent even told me via their "regular" newsletter that TTN 6 is available!!

You would think that the "new" product would be offered immediately to existing customers via a special offer or at full price.

Problem now is that if TT DID come up with a discount deal what about the people who have already upgraded - would TT care?

There has already been a posting regarding new maps for TTN5. This would give them a way out if the maps are later than those at TTN6 launch. TTN6 users could get them free and TTN5 could have an upgrade.

Will it happen? Dont know but I have TTN5 on an AXIM X50V which isnt on the supported list for TTN6 - will TT offer me anything? If they do will it be worthwhile?

Wait and see - I've already got Destinator V6 which has more recent maps than any TT product anyway.
