System failure after update
edited November 2018
update 6581 ( application rider-2) downloaded and installed.
System doesn't start up anymore.
What can I do ?
December 2016 - Don't update your TomTom Home 2 with any updates as TomTom have decided to disable all these older models with their new Critical update. Once you install the update you wont get any further support for your device. including map updates, Itinerary planning - you wont be able to make a New Itinerary, Start Navigation, Operate my go. This is extremely disappointing that this company are walking away from so many worldwide TomTom devices because they cant be bothered looking after their customers with a few older models. Well my device was working fine until I downloaded this critical update and not it is useless just like your company.
