Is TomTom uploading my data?

While performing a MAP UPDATE.

TomTom is using 100% of my upload bandwidth of 3Mb/s. 100%. The download rate matches exactly that same speed; almost like I am being given one bit for every bit they take off my computer.


What is TomTom uploading to it's servers from my computer?

ps: I have a 100Mb/s down, 3Mb/s up cable connection.

    Further snooping and it turns out the app is using NDIS and mapping the GPS as a network device. And maximum it can do is somewhere around 45k per second over a USB interface (it's plugged in to a USB 3 port).

    Make that 22k/s to the TomTom device -- 45k is the sum of the download and the push to the unit.
