That's a bit of a kick in the teeth, not even the option to add memory to keep ny device getting maps - so the marketing message is pure spin.

This pushed me to see what my Android phone is like as a SatNav.

Surprise surprise - it's much better, far easier to program, much wider selection of destinations (eg company names, and may other types), works anywhere on earth and is free.

I would never have discovered this without the product I thought was still OK being arbitrarily declared obsolete.

Thanks TomTom for pulling the rug form under me and at the same time pointing me to the way forward, and bye bye.

    That's the bit I don't understand. If the argument from TomTom is that some older devices lack memory why, if they possess memory expansion capability, can that not be used to keep them going with larger maps?

    And if it can't, what is the point of the memory expansion?
