Maps_Force_Upgrade [Master Traveler]

I've had a GO5000 for ages and in actual use all over Europe it has saved me many times. I could not have done without it. BUT it is becoming useless and my next device will NOT be a TomTom... Not. A. Chance. Why? Because I am being forced to buy a newer device or a 16G SD card just to update my map!! Unacceptable. You are generating income by forcing people onto new kit by ensuring that EVERY map update is too big for memory. And the ONLY is to buy a big SD card and install the map update to there. Although of course I stiill have to keep the original map in memory despite it being out of date and not the map I want anyway!! So now I have a completely pointless map filling my entire on-board memory and there is nothing I can do except sit on TomTom's finger while you gradually increase mapsizes beyond SD capacity no doubt :-( For example adding buildings, with no other option... I will not be manipulated so blatantly. So goodbye TomTom, hallo Garmin I guess.
