  • ...I'm afraid I have no confidence in that; it's very easy for a rogue company to claim a junior employee was acting untra-vires. And the word of a random moderator remains of little or no value.

    What is required is clarification from a…
  • ...Yes, we've seen that. But that's one post from one moderator, and doesn't negate the other statement.

    Besides which. Tom Tom need to make a formal announcement as to what the position is - not abdicate responsibility for that to some …
  • Unfortunately that announcement is cryptic, and doesn't address the statement they made elsewhere to the effect "lifetime" effectively means until they take it upon themselves to decide your machine is no longer to be supported...

  • For my part the FOURTEEN Tom Tom satnavs we own between business and family vehicles will NOT be getting replaced with TomTom products - And if we're offered a vehicle with TomTom built in as its native navigation system, that will be the dealbreake…

    But elsewhere they basically say "lifetime" is limited to when they take it upon themselves to cease to support the device... Which can be ten years down the line or ten months! So; essentially this is an out-and-out…

    TomTom don't give a **** - they've got you're money.
  • A couple of points on this one... From the BBC piece;

    "It has become clear that some of our older generation navigation devices do not have sufficient resources to run the newest maps and software."

    No it hasn…
  • I see the Go1000 on the list... Got an email for my old 700 which I haven't used in years, but NOT for the 1000, which was bought with LIFETIME map updates...

    On another thread a user is saying that their device - bought in June 2016 in …
  • I received an 'end of life' email in relation to an old Go700 that I haven't used in three or four years - fair enough I suppose, it is a dozen years old. But I'd already replaced it with a Go1000 - No 'end of life' email for that, but I see the Go…
  • It seems there is nothing to be done but abandon TomTom products...

    We have recently abandoned Windows for Linux as iterations of it beyond XP have proved increasingly like 'ransom ware'.
