They have just cut support for my Classic XXL, should i still be able to use my PC to set my destination using Tom Tom Home 2?

    Try workaround by dhn,,,

    Here is a workaround to get back to a version of Home that retains the old functionality:

    1) Uninstall TomTom Home
    2) Download last "good" version from http://download.tomtom.com/sweet/application/releases/v2_9_91_411_win.exe 3) Install it without running ie, 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)
    or
    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=2.9.91.411" to "Version=2.9.94.450"
    6) Run TomTom Home. It will believe to be running latest version 2.9.94.450 and therefore not pull the update.
    Edit...
    Important... the version number used in the example may/will change over time
    Substitute the version number in the example with latest version number
    Maybe future proof it, use something like Version=2.99.99.999

    Didn't work. I followed instructions and after I started Home it went into a loop that kept asking to install the next version. I had to delete from PC and download and install the current version.

    Those instructions were copied from elsewhere when the latest TTHome was 2.9.94.450 but now the latest is actually 2.11.3.150 so you need to fool TTHome into believing you have that or newer by using 2.11.4.000 or even 3.00.0.000 (anything higher that the last genuine version)
    Try again and let us know how you get on

    Try this. Go through the steps again BUT, this time, change the version to 2.11.3.150 in the application.ini file.

    I can understand the logic of this, but it's not working for me.

    I hadn't used my XL (GV version) for a year or so until receiving the email about the WNRO update.

    Having now updated Home, the 'operate' function is dead. The latest version is 2.11.6.something but even using 3.0.0.0 gets nowhere.

    Anyone had a success?
