Disabling Charging Station updates... Tomtom GO BASIC 5

Hi all

Does any one know how to disable Charging Station updates? It keeps coming up on my device and despite turning it off it keeps turning on again.

I don't need a Charging Station as I have a petrol car.

Any ideas as it's driving me mad? :'(

    Hi YamFazMan. Thanks for the reply. Yes, that's how I have switched off these updates but they keep switching back on again.

    So I have to contact TT to get them switched off? Oh why, oh why does this company make things so difficult for users <sigh>...

    Ok, thanks again :)

    Just an update to the above. I contacted TT Support who told me to go through the process of hiding charging stations from the maps and that would cure the issue.

    I told them I had already done that numerous times and it kept switching on again by itself every time.

    They then came back and told me "There is no way to remove this update as this is an embedded subscription which comes with the device. You will just have to ignore this update if you do not wish to download it." so it appears there's no solution.

    Should've known :/

    As in the reply from Support....
    I never bother to install them... During an update I always de-select Charging Station POIs
