I have just purchased a new TomTom One and was looking at the safety camera updates. Both are about the same price, but what I'm interested to know is whether there is much difference in their coverage and update frequency? Also does the TomTom update provide me with any additional features being specifically for a TomTom device?

The TT update offers you less facilities than the PGPSW DB.

With the TT DB you can't configure the camera warnings and you don't get Mobile Sites.Smile

The TT one is nowhere near as good as the PGPSW one. You can't change the alert distance at all (its the same for every speed, which is daft) or the alert sound. It is updated much less frequently (PGPSW about 2-3 times a month recently).

Most importantly, there are loads of cameras missing on the TT one.
