    Just downloaded and installed new 870 map for my 2535 Live and WOW what a difference it makes. All of a sudden, it flies thru menus, screen to screen, looks like they finally optimized maps for a new software. I didn't check it on the road yet but tomorrow morning I'll be going all over NY so it will be a good test. It downloaded and installed without a single hiccup, so I hope it finally becomes my primary PND.

    Andy,
    Something is quite weird, unless you moderators can play games.
    Your post, per eMail notification received:
    brings me directly to my original one, now edited, and yours is not to be found.

    I do not know what happened to my posted original link as I always enter links in an eMail composition page and double click on them to see that they work, and it did last night.
    Cheers,

    I just downloaded and installed the new map today. What a shock! Having just recently changed from a Go 730 which took about 1 hour to download and install a new map I wasn't prepared to spend so much time with this one. It took 2 hours and 20 minutes to download and then over an hour to install. This was on the same computer that I used for the 730. Should it take this long or was my computer just really slow today?

    "Serious problem encountered" is usually a sign that the email address on your MyTomtom account was used before for another Tomtom (even a device on Home2).

    Try creating a brand new account with a brand new email and see if that helps.
