Updating a tomtom
I also have an old Garmin that still works fine, but its maps are outdated.
Also found another in the trash, that still works and am in the testing stage of it's capabilities, now.
Because of this, I doubt I would buy a Tom Tom again.
I also find the internal management of storage in the device confusing.
Story short, I'm done with TOMTOM, for good and suspect that many others are, as well, judging by the reviews! Recently, with the 6 April rollover event, an update was required to keep the device optimally performing.
I have since ordered a used Garmin from e Bay with the latest updates.It keeps telling me it is not responding and please reconnect with the PC. I am sick & tired of my Tom Tom not updating, or saying the map is corrupted and then my computer (with superfast broadband connection) taking an hour to download the update..to get a message on my Tom Tom at the end to say it still has no maps loaded.If you're OK with this, you can continue using our sites.
My Go 5100 keeps disconnecting when i'm updating, it downloads the update to my p C without a problem it just keeps disconnecting when updating between my PC and device.
I bought several of them months ago and not one of them works now, updates won't upload, and I can't get a response from customer service. I have owned and used my Tom Tom GPS for about seven years.
