How can I get the best out of my Unsupported device when in Canada?
Are there any tricks or work-arounds?

    This works for me....

    I can install all the updates that Tomtom allows for my EOL NAV2 Start device....
    Note... Using this option you will be running a modified version 2_9_91_411 that doesn't call for the latest problematic update to be installed

    Firstly Backup any Maps you have in Tomtom Home... To your PC....

    Modify Tomtom Home to use older version of Tomtom Home... (Mabe useful for End of Life Tomtom Devices with No further map or other updates)

    (1)… Uninstall Tomtom Home
    (2)… Download last "good" version 2_9_91_411 from....

    (3)… Install it without running....
    i.e... uncheck the 'Run Home' tick box when installation completes

    (4)... Using Windows Explorer, navigate to
    C:\Program Files\Tomtom HOME 2\xul (32 bit Windows)
    C:\Program Files (x86)\TomTom HOME 2\xul (64 bit Windows)
    and find application.ini file
    (5)… Edit application.ini file (you might need admin privileges) and modify "Version=" to "Version="
    (6)… Run Tomtom Home. It will believe to be running the latest version and therefore not pull the update
