  • PS - I meant 3rd option, not 2rd option, on same page
    in Smart 52 Comment by JonathanG March 2021
  • For 5 inch TomTom Car Sat Nav GO 5200, on Amazon UK, 2rd option is NAV + MOUNT + CHARGER - does this mean that GO 5200 does not come with either WINDSCREEN MOUNT or CHARGER???…

  • PS FOR TomTom Car Sat Nav GO 5200, on Amazon Uk, it says CONNECTIVITY USB + BLUETOOTH and sale price of £189. But based on lousy description it is unclear if updates can be downloaded via Pc+USB

  • It would seem, based on your presentation, of various models, for which I thank you, that every Tom Tom model has a drawback. When I had my old TomTom in Amsterdam, I occasionally connected to my PC and that was that, and no extra fees for anything. I did notice BLUETOOTH and WI-FI on various models, somehow related to my…

  • Perhaps? TomTom GO Basic 5" Sat Nav with Lifetime Full Europe Maps (or is anything marked "basic" flawed for Uk?
    in Smart 52 Comment by JonathanG March 2021
  • I previously had TOM TOM for 5 years when I was living in Netherlands, and used it as well to travel throughout Europe. I certainly never had a "subscription" for it, and regularly connected it to my computer for TOM TOM updates. That was about 8 years ago. Is there not a TOM TOM model which is LIFETIME for UK and Europe…

  • this affects all 52 units, no matter what the map options are? (UK, Europe, etc.)
    in Smart 52 Comment by JonathanG March 2021
  • If I replace unit for use in both UK and EUROPE, should I get EUROPE, EUROPE NAV or WESTERN EUROPE - all of which are START 52 OPTIONS, or must I avoid altogether the the 52 series as defective?

  • START 52 I meant, and two letters are XR

  • Is my current unit SMART 52 UK/ROI unusable in UK?

  • PSS - chat seems to work better on Edge, but how browsers and hoops must one jump through just to ask a bloody question? As for your delayed reaction GET IN TOUCH, who's the Einstein who dreamed that up? No phones, chat impossible to understand or use, wrong or no info on Amazon UK and in the end, wrong product delivered.…

  • Never underestimate Amazon's ability to be an asshole. As for connecting to support, which browser do you use? Me, Firefox generally. Lastly, options for 52 on Amazon UK are: UK-ROI, EUROPE, WESTERN EUROPE and EUROPE NAV - all for more or less same price. I need UK + FRANCE - what is my best option? I did ask Amazon chat…

  • PS - I really hate it when big companies such as you AMAZON and TOMTOM refuse to accept responsibility for their own screw-ups, operating solely on the principle of SCREW THE CUSTOMER AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE - really, I hate that shit!

  • Re Chat: I tried 6 times, 2nd link appears, I click, window closes, game over. The fact that you "managed" to get through, does me a fat lot of good. I currently had delivered today from Amazon the 52 UK-ROI - and since I am going to France in a few months, +$49.99 for map + $10 for card, hence a total rip off as "Europe"…

  • Thanks, as for phone, I really appreciate it, although it would have been just as simple to post PHONES DOWN DURING COVID on website! I still can't contact CHAT, as all it produces is gibberish. Have you tried? Also, I need to clarify, I am "trying to exchange" my START 52 for Europe model, but what is difference between…

  • thank you - such as https://www.amazon.co.uk/s?k=sandisk+Micro+SD+Class+10&ref=nb_sb_noss_2 ? I saw nothing on TT website on this and when I checked downloading of Europe (what the hell is a subscription??), it asked for first 2 of serial number, which is XR, and then it said, NOT COMPATIBLE - so will your trick work or…
