    Called TomTom just now...they say it wont be available anymore. NEVER.

    Thats not good. What when a remote breaks, they can not even replace it then...

    I have contacted a TT employee and sorry to say he confirms
    Its a very very limited stock which is reserved for repair purpose, so I don't think it will be available on the webshop .

    Hi, I am looking for a remot control.
    I would like to buy one, also if it isn't new.

    They "might" have them available for repairs/swaps through their RMA service. Other best bet would be to buy a used one from a third party person.

    Sadly I can't. Best would be to search through retailers or check some bidding website (although this is your decision cause it's outside support). You could always look outside your country and see if someone is willing to sell and ship it to Italy, but again, this is your own responsibility and I can't be responsible for what happens.

    Alternatively you can call TomTom, tell them your remote broke and pay for the repair fee to get it fixed or get a refurbished one (or new one, I don't know).

    I wish you luck.

    Hiya, I have few of these available on ebay. They are brand new. TT have stopped selling them, so there like gold dust

    Hello
    Does anyone know if there's an alternative to the TomTom Bandit remote control. I have stupidly lost mine and as TomTom in their wisdom have stopped selling replacements, I am looking for an alternative solution. Thanks in advance

    There is no alternative, look on eBay or other third party sites for a used one. The Bandit was discontinued over 5 years ago and TT Sports went out of business almost 4 years ago so there is no original stock left.
