GO 1005

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

Re: GO 1005

[ Edited ]

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?

Re: GO 1005

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 :smileywink:

Re: GO 1005

 Yes that only applies to TT LIVE with app 10.200 and app 10.201.. All others do nor allow anything but POIs .

10.201 is an update for 10.200 adding stability to 200.

Re: GO 1005

Thanks.

 

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.

Re: GO 1005

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.:smileywink:

Re: GO 1005

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 :-)

Re: GO 1005

 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.
