Hi,

 

To answer your questions:

 

1. The new Start 20 does have a micro SD slot, this will be activated this summer for you to use.

 

2. The add voices feature we are expecting to add soon to MyTomTom.  I do not have an exact release date for this so would recommend signing up for notications of the new features for MyTomTom.

 

Here is the link for this: http://uk.support.tomtom.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/12566/kw/notify

 

You need to click on 'notify me' on the very bottom right of this page to recive notifications.

Re: Tomtom Start 20 :(

A late addition to this thread - I've just bought a Start 20 Europe, expecting an SD card slot as per the Tomtom website specification. Apparently, it seems to have no such slot, unless it's very cunningly hidden.

 

Why not? Have I bought some old stock? Should I return it?

 

More :smileysad:   I'm afraid.

Re: Tomtom Start 20 :(

...and I can answer my own question!  Having examined the device carefully while waiting for new maps to download, I unplug - and there it is - the card slot. Feindishly cunning....

 

Happy now! :smileyvery-happy:

Re: Tomtom Start 20 :(

Why then doesn't the Start 20 series reference guide which I downloaded only a couple of days ago mention the SD card slot?

Hi,

 

it mentions the SD card slot as there is one in your device. That it isn't usable is not due to your device but due to software troubles TT's staff is trying to solve since some time.

 

Not belonging to TT's staff I cannot tell you more about the state of their developments but I suspect they'll get along with it and sometime they'll have all the features implemented they promised.

 

 

Regards

Lars.

"it mentions the SD card slot as there is one in your device."

 

You must have a different version of the Start 20 series reference guide, because the PDF I downloaded doesn't contain the words SD or card or slot and I've done a thorough search.

Re: Tomtom Start 20 :(

Hi there,

 

sorry, I read that the card slot would be mentioned in the user's guide. That it isn't included in the description may be due to the cause that to my knowledge the SD card functionality still is not usable with the navcore 10 devices.

So I assume that the information about the SD card slot will be added as soon as it is enabled. If you have a look at the user guides you'll see that they get updated from time to time as well.

 

Are you at least able to find the SD slot your device? offers  If not have a look at the bottom side near the USB socket.

 

 

Regards

Lars.

Re: Tomtom Start 20 :(

So does it work now?

I only just got that TOMTOM assuming that if the homepage say it will work form summer 2011 onwards it should work now then.

So does it??

Re: Tomtom Start 20 :(

Brrrrr,  getting a bit chilly now whilst waiting for the summer software fix to enable the SD slot.

 

School boy error by TomTom originally commiting to a time frame for the fix.  The new line in the tech specs ("SD Slot -  Will be enabled with a new, free Software release") will be much more reassuring to the product manager.

 

Not so comforting is the continued reference to the as yet unavailable QuickGPSfix ("will be available as a download through MyTomTom in the near future").  Where's that sitting on the product backlog I wonder?

 

I'm off to feed the unicorns.

 

Bob
