Hey does Tomtom provide ANY updates to allow users of their Sat NAv products to input a security code to lock the device and make it a little less attractive to thieves? I can find nothing and I am shocked. I have just purchased a Tomtom product, my very first Tomtom, and I am very impressed with the things the device can do. However, I must mark the company do for failing miserably to prove absolutely no form of security for the device. Why is there is no security provided by Tomtom for these expensive devices? Why does not Tomtom provide an update or an add on via the Tomtom website to allow users to get an update to their devices that will all them to lock the device and unlock it with a personal code. Guess what? Rival Garmin products have this feature as standard. Oops Tomtom. I can find no way to download any additional software to track the device. Such a feature should be inbuilt into these devices as standard. In this day and age there is absolutely no excuse for this oversight. Very, very poor service. No wonder Tomtom products are attractive to thieves, Tomtom does nothing to help their customers to deter thieves. Nothing to help their customers to protect the major investment in money when buying Tomtom products. It would cost Tomtom nothing to provide a locking code or tracking software, most smart phone providers and security companies provide a simple programme like this for free. Tomtom get on the case and start providing an update to allow people to lock their car navigation devices with a code, or even better an update that will only allow a thief to drive a security locked device to a programmed destination , like a police station or another address of the owners choosing. Come on Tomtom, not too hard to do is it? Think of the added value you would give to your products. This is something that should have been done 3 years ago. Looks like your company needs a little wake up call in this department. COME GET A SECURITY FEATURE UPDATE FOR A DOWNLOAD NOW.
