How to get more life out of a TomTom XL?
First of all I know the old TomTom XL devices are EoL (End of Life) and are not receiving any updates anymore, that's the whole reason for this thread.
Now I also know that it may be frowned upon what I'm going to ask for here but since I cannot officially buy any updates anymore and my mom, who the TomTom XL belongs to, has an emotional bond to the device and won't switch to a newer device (not kidding with that one, a family member that the XL previously belonged to died a couple of years ago and she got the XL after his passing and won't give it up ever since) I want to ask if there's any way to still get some use out of it.
We were driving around today and 2 out of 10 times it'd just show wrong infos or newer streets won't even show up on the maps since those are 2+ years old or so. That's another reason for this topic.
I'll come straight to the point: Is there any way to still get updates for this device? Be it hacking or in any other, maybe even still official way? I'm really tech-y when it comes to those kind of things but the stuff I found online so far just sounds shady, I don't want to attempt any of that and possibly risking a brick...
If possible please don't just close this thread, I already tried getting my mom a new device but she just won't switch over. Tbh I don't really like the XL with it's wonky touchscreen, slow update rates and sluggishness but she still refuses to give it away to this day...
Thanks a ton!
