It is currently a sorry topic that TomTom have discontinued providing support and supplying services (Live Traffic, Cameras etc) to older devices - some as recent as just a few short years old.

My question is - how long will TomTom (and/or vehicle manufacturers) support and provide services for built in devices? So when will our Carminats etc stop functioning? My first Carminat is still in the van I bought in 2010. That's older than some PNDs which have lost their support and services.

    You know what will put TomTom out of business? These arrogant replies, if this is coming from TomTom. If its not from TomTom, I will just ignore it... Why not putting upgrades and features out as a paid options? I just use TomTom products and just bought 2 x Runner3's for me and my daughter. I like TomTom products, but their attitude sucks. I heard that TomTom sport watches are discontinued, but do you think I can get a reply, or somebody from TomTom that want to reply on this??? No ways. I also have a TomTom GPS that cannot update anymore???? Why don't you tell this to people before they buy??? What is the use of buying a product that can last 10 years but is useless after 5 years??? Because of this, I just convince a group of people in my Parkrun group to rather buy another brand. TomTom = Arrogance

    My Live services on my carminate won't function and I cannot connect as the service won't input my password correctly either and have just renewed.
