Please don't waste my time on this sort of thing. My only reason for all these postings is that the darn machine doesn't work and never has done. I think I'll but something else instead, and soon. That ought to be worth a demotion - who cares?

À propos…

  • A result at last! Yesterday Zen Internet connected me to their fibre system It still involves nearly a mile of overhead copper but it's the best I can do here. Except it didn't work! Yesterday evening involved getting Zen to manually switch on what …
  • Well I've already got a Netgear N300. In case that isn't up to it (their words, not mine) Zen have sent me a FritzBox 7530. Again, all this is out of my league. Both quote 300Mbit/s, the new one has lots of other numbers but it might as well be Chi…
  • Well I got cocky and had a good go at the Europe maps which quite frankly would be more useful than Oceania. In the end, nearly three hours wasted. It failed, twice. Got to 42% and fell back to 22%. When it did it for the second time on exactly the…
  • Gentlemen, and any ladies involved. The earth has moved! It's Saturday evening in rural Somerset and I checked the broadband download speed - 5Mbps - as good as it gets around here! I felt lucky and went for the Oceania maps - the USB cable was int…
  • YFM - White List? Can find no reference.
  • I'm supposed to be on a cross channel ferry but that got cancelled. My Go Camper ain't taking me anywhere! I only bought the thing because my second hand 1005 needed about £80 in subscriptions for live traffic and maps. I though this was a better lo…
  • Got that thanks. I have never mentioned a daughter and a playstation though. Someone else in trouble? Cheers. My next wait is on Bitdefender however! Well that's what the guy at TT said - Firewall problem and I'm loather to just turn it off. Later…
  • YamFazMan - 30Mbps? That's fairy land as far as we're concerned. Where was this recommendation? We live in a rural location. Current download speeds are around 4Mbps, as I have stated before. As of next Monday, November 4th I am upgrading to fibre, …
  • Lampard - you seem to know what you're talking about. Unfortunately I don't. The Oceania thing was an attempt to break the cycle, nothing more. Quite frankly I'd be happy with UK maps but apparently Europe is the closest I can find. At all times th…
  • If BianE is still watching this..................? I tried the download of "Oceania" suggested. I gave up after 3 aborted download attempts at or around the 90% mark - took over an hour to do that. Have emailed TomTom Support - 48hrs and …

  • The appropriate download shown was Europe. The device has been "apparently" downloading for over 5 hours, getting to 9% and starting again at 0% - with hindsight, the same 9%, but of course it doesn't say so. I've turned it off and am goin…

  • I don't get that option - it's download the maps or not! When I tried the reset programme we just ended up where we started from. I called my broadband supplier today and renegotiated to go Fibre and Unlimited. That'll take 10 days to organise but …
  • I don't get that option - it's download the maps or not! When I tried the reset programme we just ended up where we started from. I'll get to my broadband supplier (Zen) tomorrow and see what options I have available. Thanks again though. Just ch…
  • You're right about the download speed and I have My Drive Connect from the previous device yet, despite it acknowledging the existance of the new machine, it stubbornly insistes I use Wi-Fi ! The new device offers me nothing but this loop of new map…
