New "my tomtom" software update - 3.0.2.319

The new My tomtom software is now available, version  3.0.2.319. I don't see anything different. I am guessing it resolves the outstanding issues from the the final group of devices that could not get map updates.

Unfortunately, we are all guessing!  It would be nice if TomTom could post a release note to accompany all such software releases (as most other technology companies do).  Perhaps we users would all be slightly less frustrated if we could see some progress through this fiasco.

The new My TomTom software has a different option when you connect your unit ... "Add community content"

 

This apparently allows the addition of things such as car icons, flash screens, colour schemes, etc.  However, it does not give any indication as to the format of those files.  I successfully added some files to my unit, but they do not appear in any of the menus, even after re-booting.  I assume that the old formats are not recognised, or that the software for the unit will also need to be updated before they can be used.

 

Anyone at TomTom got information on this situation?

 

IT WOULD BE REALLY NICE IF TOMTOM PROVIDED USERS INFORMATION ABOUT WHAT EACH SOFTWARE UPDATE IS SUPPOSED TO DO.  We are not idiots.  We feel like we are being treated like mushrooms - kept in the dark and being fed the brown stuff.

I think "Add community content" is Add POI's renamed :smileyhappy:

Looks like you can copy your "Favorites.ov2" to your computer.  Was that always there?

I think that was already on the list as it stuck out with no remove option.

You would think that if they actually fixed any issue they would shout it from the rooftops so I'm guessing it is just a low level bug fix. (Fix one bug, introduce two new ones.)
