I'm sure that this recent (BIG IMPORTANT UPDADE) is one of Tomtom's ploys to try and get existing customers to buy new hardwear. I have had my device for several years now and have been bombarded by new updates. It would be all well and good if these downloads were quick and easy but there not. It's like they're reinstalling the entire map every time, judging by the time it takes to put them on the device.
Since downloading this latest update it has completely rendered my device useless, displaying only NO MAPS FOUND. After following the instructions on how to cure this problem through tomtom's youtube site the rectifying download page keeps freezing. What a shambles.
