Updating tomtom gps maps
Everything was fine with the unit but it would cost me .99 USD for a 5 year license or 9.99 lifetime. I will never buy Tom Tom ever again and will tell everyone far and wide that they are a scam.
When I told them I had lifetime free maps I was told the maps were free - however I had to pay a software fee. Looking at Garmin but who knows if they are any better. Purchased a Tom Tom GO 6200 in Italy for use in Europe.
When it didn't work they told me to buy a new device, as it came with unlimited updates.
I will be doing so without any GPS because Tom Tom will not ship a new unit until they get mine back.For two years, I continue to get errors and cannot update the maps on my device. I HATE THE LACK OF INTUITIVENESS EXHIBITED BY THIS COMPANY! I think Tom Tom is scaling back its business - if not folding.I am throwing this GPS away and relying on my cellphone for navigation. I have owned two Tom Tom VIAs - one of which I broke myself.Order it on a Thursday for a weekend trip, they said it would be here Friday.When I called they said it did not go out in time, so I would not get it until Monday, what a screwed up outfit.Not expecting to be able to buy a Colorado only map I was ready to buy a US only map, but my device is what Tom Tom calls an end of life product and tries to sell me a new one but Tom Tom Software made the decision that I can no longer buy anymore maps for this particular device, therefore, the lifetime map updates is a lie.When you buy a new one then you can't believe what they say.They literally cut the life short on my Tom Tom, they should say almost lifetime map updates, or free map updates until we decide to pull the plug in their advertising.But by cutting out countries I never go to and cutting out POI that I never use, deleting hundreds of voices I never use, etc etc then I had control over deleting such things to save memory and get a much longer life span.I am going out to buy a new Garmin or something else today.In my opinion, Tom Tom GPS units are crap and their customer support is a bit worse than the IRS.
