Why does it STILL take soooooooo long to download updates and soooooooo long to install? TomTom this is your end not ours! I like the device and routing service but your app and download rates ****. Get with the modern world or lose customers...

    Hi
    @NoizBoi

    Which Tomtom device do you own ???
    How Fast/Slow is your Internet connection ???
    Have you tested your connection speed
    Try the 'Which' broadband speed test... for a real World speed check

    It's not down to the device or our broadband providers! This happened on my previous device and, if you read other forum posts, is a problem at your end. Map updates can take hours to download then more hours to install. Last time I updated maps it took 2 to 3 hours to download then more than 2 hours to install... Others with faster broadband have similar problems - look at all the posts!

    Hi
    @NoizBoi

    Edit... just updated my GO 5000
    Full Europe map v10.20 size 8.199GB
    NAV4 GO 5000 over USB using MyDrive connect....
    Map Download only... 10mins 50seconds (Stopwatch)
    Download + Install 1hr 4mins 37seconds (Stopwatch)

    See 'Online Download speed calculator'... https://www.download-time.com/
    File size = 1.199 GB Connection speed = 110Mb/s... Result 10Mins 40Secs
    Actual Download time from Tomtom... 10mins 50 seconds (Stopwatch)

    I'm happy with the 8.199 GB update in a 1hr 4mins 37secs
    ______________________________________

    For me this update is fastest yet... Full Europe map v10.20 size 8.6GB....
    18mins 3secs (Stopwatch)
    Virgin media 110Mb/s (Speed checked)
    NAV5 (Wi-Fi) GO 520 over USB with MyDrive connect running in the background....
    NAV5 (Wi-Fi) Devices update on the fly i.e... No Download/Upload/Install
