Loaded first time with no error messages.

Most of the changes i've submitted multiple times are now on the maps and don't need adding!


Comment now withdrawn. Weird. When i first started up i checked a local junction. All the corrections to traffic direction where there. However once i drove to it they disappeared and 90% of the corrections need adding again.... Crying or Very sad

I have my Western_and_Central_Europe_2GB update now. On first glance they do appear to have included a few of the changes I made...


I'd like to take this back now. None of the changes have actually been integrated into the map, the corrections I made were just carried over during the update. I reinstalled my map manually today and noticed all my corrections were lost, so I had to do them all again. Roads that don't exist, turn restrictions, inaccurately mapped roads etc.

I've given up reporting this one Dennis. It's even wrong on Google Maps aswell. http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?hl=en&tab=wl

Previous attempts by other TomTom users can send you via the village of Hindon, which isn't much use.

NOT Europa!

Map folder name is 'Europe'. In that folder, files named :-

Europe.pna
Europe-80.meta
Europe-80.meta.dct

Hope this helps clear up the confusion! Very Happy


Just Downloaded the Europe_2GB, that has installed itself to a folder on the 720 named Europe_2GB which contains:-
Europe_2GB.pna
Europe_2GB-114.meta
Europe_2GB-114.meta.dct

The Map is V840.2568 and covers Western & Central Europe including Russia etc.

For interest, TNT pay me loaded mileage from pickup point to destination AND they specify what miles they'll pay. I've been arguing with them for some time now, because they always come up with less mileage than I do. I have at last found out that they use Navteq Shortest Route, equivalent of TT shortest too. So I've started doing that and to heck with any ideas they may have about when it's going to get there.

But this is throwing up loads of map errors - the maps simply don't take proper account of unsuitable roads. At least, the latest maps don't. My older maps (v675) have all those little back unsurfaced tracks dotted out as un-navigable, but the new maps don't. Yesterday I did a pickup from a farm business park in a village near Stonehenge and was then directed to turn onto a track which might well have landed me amongst the druids, provided I didn't get hung up on the centre line with wheels in tractor wheelruts! (51.18780,-2.00857) On Tuesday, I ended up going to Christchurch through an unsurfaced road which had so many potholes I feared for my suspension. Sure, I could have turned back and gone on a lovely tarmac road more than 5 miles longer at my own cost, but instead I chose to drive very carefully down this track. If the new map was as good as the old map, I would not have been placed in that position.
