    Is that a brand new Laguna and brand new Carminat? I understood they dropped the Carminat some years ago in favour of Renault R-Link (TomTom).

    I suppose they grant free for life stuff on the new portable sat navs to make up for the reduced features profiles of them.

    For my Renault R-Link I just paid £65 for one year TomTom Live Services and £45 for a three month old TomTom map of UK and ROI. The Renault software is so bad I still haven't got the new map installed after trying for the last six days!!!
