I was just about to download some MapShare, Fuel Price and speed cam updates about 20 mins ago, then I had a couple of Guru Meditation errors, and after that it only offered me the MapShare and Fuel Price data but the camera updates had vanished.

But after a few minutes it all came back to normal and Home is currently downloading them.

Anyone know how far apart Vodafone masts are? Want to take my 550 to a different location - how far would I need to travel?

One report on TT Forum about consistent loss of live around Junc 16 of M25, which is near where I live.

Didn't someone do a POI file for the Vodaphone masts some time ago? (might have been Mike A?)
It doesn't seem to be on the POI download page though, so maybe a forum search will find mention of it...

This morning drove West on A40/M40. As i crossed the M25 live came back on again, and has stayed on since.

Edit: Probably a Vodafone/TT problem. But let's also consider a military GPS jammer at RAF Northolt. After all we did have Tornado jets rehearsing how to shoot down passenge planes over London during the Olympics, for the first part of the month.

Edit 2: there are no Live services covering my home address.

Many thanks Andy P. Vodafone mast 3288 is nearest to me, and I assume is not broadcasting Live information.

Still no Live connetion at my Home location. If I drive 4/5 miles North or West then Live connects. I've been detailing these 'experiments' on TT's Forum, but the staff have been noticeably hands off for a few weeks.

I've noticed a black spot on the Northern Section of the M25 for the past 2 / 3 weeks - interestingly until this week ist was roughly Junction 17 to 21 now it seems to have moved from to 20 to 24

My 750 loses live traffic whilst in this zone and reconnects afterward - been meaning to mention it for a while now.

I started a thread where I was wondering about Vodafone's commitment to Live services. They no longer get a cut of sales, just a flat fee, so maybe disincentivised a bit?
