TomTom Model(s)
Go Premium X , Go Exclusive
I have several TomTom navigation systems, Go Premium X and Go Exclusive.
I want to know which type of system they are, "Always Connected" or only via smartphone connected?
Thank you.
 
Go Premium X always connects via the integrated SIM card.

Go exclusive. Tomtom services via smartphone.
 
Thank you.
Any idea from data usage for the Go Exclusive when connected to mobile network?
 
On average, driving one hour a day during peak hours will use around 7MB of data per month.
 
Oh great, I tought it would be much more. And since I have limited mobile data. But this is no problem with 10Gb a month.
Thank you for the info.

Just be careful to avoid full map updates on a tethered connection! Had one of my devices still connected to my phone vs. my office WiFi by mistake last month!
 
Also just watch that TT will not support the SIM system when the 2G and 3G networks are turned off which is, I believe, imminent.
 
Orange will still be supporting 2G/3G for a while yet.
 
What has been announced Orange will disconnect 2G at the end of 2025.
For 3G, the date chosen is the end of 2028.

2025 - 2030, depending up on country and service.

"In terms of the timeline, Leboucher said “We have basically two major steps, one is 2025 when we will phase out 3G in all European countries except France. In France, we start with 2G. The reason for that is we have very strong 3G coverage compared to 2G in France, so we decided to do it in different order. The second step which will happen between 2028 and 2030, and then we will have switched off the two technologies across Europe.”
 
For the UK OffCom have issued a pdf statement
In December 2021, the UK’s mobile network operators (MNOs) confirmed to the Government (the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport - DCMS) that they will not offer 2G or 3G services beyond 2033.
Each MNO has confirmed that its 3G network will be switched off first, starting from early2023:• Vodafone is starting its switch-off in early 2023.• EE plans to start its switch-off in early 2024. • Three expects to switch off by the end of 2024.• Virgin Media (VM)-O2 has not yet announced its planned 3G switch-off date.
To date, none of the MNOs have set a specific date for 2G switch-off. We expect they willstart making plans to switch off their 2G networks after they have switched off 3Gnetworks, likely towards the latter half of this decade
 
Some of the major heartburn with 2G shutdown has been (and will be, in some countries), the number of telemetry devices (e.g., waterway flow meters) that employ 2G to report remote data.
