Please don't direct me to the User Manual as that is useless just saying it could be either depending on model

    Hi! For trafic and speed camera, you don't need to have a smartphone. The smartphone connected is useful for free hand use of the smartphone.

    Just to clarify, for traffic and speed camera updates you need access to the Internet.

    For smartphone connected, you provide this via the data connection on your phone (with Bluetooth). For always connected, the TomTom itself connects directly to the Internet via its own SIM card (i.e. you don't need a phone).

    Other than that, the features and functionality of both your phone and the TomTom are identical with either method.
