Updating tomtom sat nav
If you own a Tom Tom GPS Sat Nav then the chances are at some point you will have experienced your maps on the device not being completely up to date.
This is entirely to be expected as roads can change, new highways can be built, the priority can be altered on junctions, and business can move addresses.
If you want Tom Tom map updates and need to refresh the maps on your Tom Tom GPS then our short guide will tell you what you need to know about downloading new Tom Tom maps.
Tom Tom free map updates are available using the Tom Tom Map Share technology.
I have also confirmed with Tom Tom that the map “European Camper” edition currently IS NOT AVAILABLE AS A FREE LIFE-TIME UPDATE.
When purchasing the Tom Tom Go Live Camper & Caravan GPS you do get a 90 day map guarantee that allows you to download the latest map edition for free within the first 90 days of activating your GPS.
So in order to use them your i Phone must have the 'Personal Hotspot' feature or your Android phone the 'Tethering and portable hotspot' setting.
It will also let you make map corrections yourself as you drive.
The Tom Tom GO 600 is a fully featured 6-inch widescreen sat-nav with lifetime traffic and map updates.
Its arrival coincides with a new version of Tom Tom Traffic, the sophisticated jam detection system that was recently renamed from Tom Tom HD Traffic.
You can tap on an incident to get more information, including the type of incident, its length along the road and the duration of the delay it is currently causing.
But the new version of Traffic brings some extra capabilities, including one very overt one, although most are lurking under the surface.We found this worked just fine with our test i Phone, though you do need to be on a network plan that allows tethering, something only a select few do.
