TomTom Home is now trying to forcefeed me software version 9.541 for my 940 Live . Apparently this was released mid December 2018 . The only information on the TomTom website is that it's a "maintenance release". The list of applicable devices seems to include many now no longer supported. Naturally I am suspicious and suspect its designed to curtail my device in some way . Does anyone have any experience of what it contains ?
( My 940 is currently running 9.510 with UK &I Map v985 )
Thanks

Nothing as sinister as that (TT ain't that clever) and not heard any negative feedback around the forums either.
Remember that some of the older end-of life devices listed still need to function if you have a current map/speedcam etc subscription which is why they're listed.
For those who want/need this direct, grab yours from:-

Could be a fix for the GPS week number rollover due in April?

You're actually right as NOW they are telling us that was the reason for the release:-

"The update which covers the fix for the GPS roll-over was included in a firmware released last year...."
