Here's the big question...

Are they worth the 40 to update or not? Confused

And a slightly smaller question....

Who's done the mapping data this time? Teleatlas or Navteq? Confused

Ta!

Well it's a bit of a ba$7ard actually, I've had my TTG720 for 44 days and I've just tried to use the "Latest Map Guarantee" and found it's expired! Evil or Very Mad

According to my 720 I have on board:

App: 7.020: OS: 2622
GPS: v1.21, Boot: 5.4104
Map: 'Western_Europe' v705.1480

So is it worth the upgrade or not, are there any major differences that should appear or be made aware of on the new maps?

I must admit that with the major roadworks on the A3 approaching Hindhead, I can't wait to see what it makes of the new "temporary" section of road at the Thursley end, it will think I'm driving in a field! Laughing

I just keep getting "There is a problem with the TomTom Home 2 server, please try again later". I'm sure I've had mine too long to get the free update, but it would be nice to know for sure.

You can download it from the website which i did mistakenly and i installed it myself, but it obviously isnt activated doing it like that, as it didn't show up at all. I then went to Home 2.1 and there was the map ready for download again. Fortunately i've got a 16meg connection to the net so it didnt take long to download again.

I also had to pay via the website as debit cards dont seem to be accepted from within Home itself, but on the website they are.

Laughing Out Loud

It does state on the website that you need to install through HOME.


I've deleted the westen europe map, and trying to re-add the map via home.
The maps sitting on my hard drive.

Fingers crossed



Nope same problem, so i've restored to the previous setup

Scainer, when you install the new map, do you see a file with a .dct extension in the directory?

I've just taken the plunge and ordered the 7.10 Western Europe map via Home2. Home2 complained about an error after I put in my card details, but I got an email from TomTom saying my payment has been accepted. However, the order (via TomTom.com / My orders) is still showing as "INPROCESS" for 1 hour so far.

I hope it works!!

I haven't got my device with me but does anyone know wether the Western Europe Map 7.10 is the one that came pre-installed on the Tom Tom One (3rd Edition)?

@ Tim Buxton

There are 13 of the .dct files, all with a 1kb file size

The downloaded zip doesn't have any.
There is an activation_map_50090.zip that has a .dct file
