    If you are referring to www.tomtomforums.com, there is nothing fake about it. It is an UNOFFICIAL support forum and says so in its header. What is your concern about that???

    I am a moderator there and have been for many years. All of us there are users such as yourself.

    I see you did join the forum on Sunday. And have made three posts so far.

    You throw the term 'fake' around frequently. Despite all your certificates, etc. you show in your sig, interesting that reading comprehension isn't there.

    And, not that you care, tomtomforums has been around LONGER than this user forum set up by Tomtom the company.

    That is quite true, but the caption "we're the largest TomTom Forum on the net," is perhaps less so nowadays.

    I think you'll find that the earlier USER forum moderators (dhn and myself included) have a long and a good relationship with the corporate group. I doubt you'll ever see a 'take down' notice. We were trying to help users resolve TomTom issues back when the company was still trying to sort it all out over the phone. Now it's good that there are at least two sources for information. Often, we are able to sort out problems with older equipment that isn't recalled well by newer owners and moderators.

    Next time you visit a forum dealing with an automobile, consider that 99% of them aren't related the the manufacturer, either. Thousands of such examples in many industries. Unclear why you have such a problem with this one.

    Just a note from another retired EE, one of the 1971-1973 operators of W0EEE (UMR), and former network manager for a large, well-known company.
