Why is there no option in GO 520 to not share user's own map correction so that the map on the device is immediately updated without having to wait for TomTom to validate the correction which can take some time? My XL has that feature.

    Hi
    @Chikie

    On the previous NAV2/3 models you could make local changes to your device

    Shortly after the launch of the NAV4 devices and for the current NAV(5 Wifi) devices
    All MapShare corrections have to be verified by Tomtom
    You can't make unverified local changes to your device

    Use the MapShare tool...

    The real problem is Tomtom is quite slow in verifying and effecting the change. Something important in NAV4 not in NAV5? That's going backwards!

    That tells us what we already know, but it doesn't answer the OP question "Why...?"
