I have recently purchased a Go 1005 after using a GO940 for a few years, I Have saved all my POI as Bitmap Images & the OV2 files, How can I install them on to my new unit.
Also can you change the Start up & Shut down screen along with the vehicle you displaying on the screen

1. Verify that you have the latest myTomTom version installed
2. Verify that you have the latest navigator version installed
Download the latest myTomTom Support Application when being offered.
Connect the navigation device to the computer when the latest navigator version isn't yet installed, install all available updates.
3. Upload POI's with images & activate on device
To add one or more POI sets to your navigation device, follow these steps:
Activate POI warning sounds on the device when desired
4. Upload a startup and shutdown image & activate on device
To add an imageto your navigation device, follow these steps:
Note: The image may also be a JPG file, and must be 480 x 272 pixels (Height and width).
Activate the startup and shutdown images on the device

This explanation launched on the web-site for GO 1005 must be some kind of a science fiction illustration.
My Go 1005 has only the possibillities of POI administration in MyTomTom.
None of the other community contents are available.
Running latest GO1005 sw and MyTomTom sw.
Am I missing something here?

When you have the latest myTomTom Support Application and the latest navigator version (10.201.xxxx) installed on the device, then all the functions should be available.
It also remains a mystery for me now,
Please contact the TomTom Team and see what they have to say about

About the GO 1005 app-versions, I am a bit confused.
I think there is only the GO "LIVE" 1005 having app: 10.201 software available. The GO 1005 (my version) has sw 10.116 as recent version (??).
Tried to emty cache in MyTomTom, but still the message "The navigation device is ut-to-date"
By the way, reading the instructions for GO 1005 on TT support web-site, how to update images, voices etc, there is no references to a software version at all.
I have two 4-weeks old TS-cases without no response yet, so I give up asking the technical support for help.
More usefull to be here on the forum :-)

"so I give up asking the technical support for help."
Yup the CS is hit and miss at best. Unfortunately they are also struggling with the change in app.
Important to call until you get a knowlegeable rep.

It appears that the newest navigator version which adds the extra functionality isn't released yet for your device.
The updates seems to roll out in stages, it normally shouldn't be to long before the newest updates arrive at a device nearby.

After all, I am a ex Garmin 1390 user, This is my first TomTom device ever.
Compared to Garmin, I have to admit,
I love the TT design, the big well responding LCD-screen, the magnetic car mount, a stunning cell-phone interface, and the user friendly GUI.
Hopefully, we will not be waiting in vain for the rest of the features to take place :-)

My 2535 TM is my 6th. TT is working hard to solve the issues. they rolled out the 10.2100/201upgrade to LIVE units to make sure they performed before releasing it to all.
I have always liked their product so I stuck with them. I love many things about the new ones. I have looked at Garmin and just not the same to me. I have also seen many complaints about them aswell.
