Just changed from a Go 1000 Live with traffic subscription to a GO Discover which uses the phone.

How does the GO Discover cope with 2 phones if I'm driving with my wife and we both have tethered our phones to the same device?

Why is there no way of phoning the real Tomtom but it's super easy fall into the scammers site https://www.tomtomupdate.live which everyone seems to know about, but has not been taken down yet?

    When the real support options are so few and difficult it's easy for scammers to step in!

    The scam sites are difficult to remove. They can operate from countries where it is very difficult to prosecute or even to find who to prosecute. But TomTom is not very different. If I google Microsoft support or Quickbooks support etc.. etc. many scam sites are returned well before the legitimate sites.

    One more question, can anyone explain why allowing a personal hotspot and connecting to wifi are mutually exclusive?
