You can fit the new models onto your existing GO1005 mount (but not vice versa). The new mount has a MICRO-USB socket, (not a mini one) and the unit itself has one too for easier PC connection.

No idea yet

Correct. Unless they DO get them implemented by launch date.

Thanks for the reply, ill stick with my 1005 then, at least I can use a good camera database.

Why do they always do this ? its so annoying , surely they must know there are a lot of users who like and only use the PGS database, instead of TomToms own. Rolling Eyes

If they're aware of that, then I'm sure that's part of their rationale for the decision. Wink
They've been pushing their own speed camera service again recently (18 months for 19.99) and I'm pretty sure they were claiming to have tarted it all up a bit too, in some way. Can't remember the details, sorry, I didn't really pay attention since I have no intention of changing from PGSW. Very Happy

Yesterday I updated my GO530 Live including their cameras. There are a bunch of new(ish) Specs cameras on the M5 south of Gloucester which they still haven't got - pgpsw CamerAlert on my iPhone is accurate, of course.

They are keeping it very quiet then? Perhaps a brown paper bag from under the counter? Wink

I'm trying to find out about the life expectancy of GPRS. US cities look to have the biggest problem with AT&T. So far I've seen a range of dates for service reduction/closure from 2014 to 2020. I'd like to know what Tomtom are thinking?


Looks like EE have taken some 2G bandwidth, and possibly slowed down 3G in order to boost 4G speeds. Where they lead can Vodafone afford to be far behind?
