Take the issue up with customer support, as someone has clearly made a cock-up of your return, there should be no charge for replacement of a device that didn't work where intended (and originally sold).

Clearly state you have returned the receiver as a requirement of the replacement as requested by TomTom, you have fully complied with everything they have asked and should not therefore be subject to a charge - Mike

Same here, my RMA vanished for a few days, and has re appeared but is showing thatI must pay 50 euros, my unit is unmodified and perfect.

TomTom really know how to p?ss off customers....I'm now having to call them from India at 1.40 per minute, it'll cost more than the RDS unit is worth....

They want me to email them proof of purchase, which is a little difficult as I'm out of the country. I've asked them to return my unit, or replace it, I'm fed up now....

they have it don't they? doesn't the fact that you sent them the unit prove that you own one and have obviously purchased it?! Laughing Out Loud!

Till receipts tend to fade very quickly under sunlight (natural or home made, or paid for in a shop), in fact some receipts even fade when kept in an envelope away from light sources.
You cannot even read one I have kept from Comet for a TV from only 6 weeks ago, I cannot see the point in demanding a receipt for goods that were not to the correct standard when sold, production of a receipt proves what? - in some cases people will have legit but so faded receipts they will not be readable, its not as if people aren't already hacked off with the entire issue of RDS-TMC in the UK, this approach to returns is ill founded and not helping matters one bit - Mike

No, sending one back does not prove that you've purchased it, I'm sure there are enough of them stolen from cars with the rest of the kit.

That said, I did buy mine from Halfords (honest!) but could not find the receipt, so put one (just the card receipt, didn't even have the item purchased on it) with the returned unit that was for 30 for the travel case and wrote on it that I paid the rest via gift vouchers. Just had and email tonight (the same day that they received the unit) saying that a replacement has been sent out. I'm not encouraging robbing TMC unit gits, but if someone else can't find their reciept, dig out a random recipt for an electrical or motor shop.

Rolling Eyes Success, TomTom are sending me a replacement receiver, but they have completely missed the point or not read my notes. This is their reply, if only they had sent the same RDS receiver back:

Thank you for contacting TomTom Customer Support.

We are very sorry to hear that the change over has experienced major problems and you have received back the same receiver. As a result of this, I am sending out the new TMC receiver free of charge, the reference number for this is FOC07101888888. I have submitted all of your details for you, so you do not need to do anything else, the item will be sent out shortly.

Once again we are sorry for the inconvenience caused, and we hope that you will accept this new receiver that we are sending out

With Best Regards

The TomTom Customer Support Team

Hmm your lucky....I had an email a few weeks ago saying they wanted a 50 euro charge..this is AFTER i've sent unit & POP back ...I contacted customer support & they assured me the email was an error, they would contact the repair centre & email me the result..2wks passed and nothing..I contacted them again yesterday to be told "hmm still showing payment needed" thats obviously an error the operator said..no S**** I thought! they assured me the payment would be wiped & I would receive my replacement TMC in 5 days or so....I received an email last night from the repair centre stating "we have your TMC unit & require payment of 100 euros for replacement" AGGGHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!! contacted tomtom again to be told the same thing..shouldnt have been a charge & dunno where the 100 euros came from....they tell me its all sorted now (the job is showing processing in my repair history) so hopefully i'll have a replacement any day soon

But...I wont hold my breath Rolling Eyes[/b]

If you pay for anything by credit card, you can use your statement as Proof Of Pruchase.

Cheers, 7&Y

After the recent debacle i had with getting my TMC replaced, i have since sent a letter to TomTom telling them how disgusted i was with the customer support, and being told time and time again the same thing.

They then sent me a customer satisfaction link via email to comment on the support i received.... Needless to say it was not positive whatsoever.

I hope you get your TMC replaced soon.
