If you open this file in notepad, you will see there is a section which says 'Version=22.214.171.1244'. Simply change this to read 'Version=126.96.36.1998'.
Another user has reported that he put in 10.00000 and it worked.This should keep things from updating until the next update to Home occurs, at which time, we'll just have to share what the new number is, and all plug that in instead of the 188.8.131.528.
So they have as good as told me I now have a choice between HD traffic, or the ability to update my map/speed camera - both elements I've paid for! I am asking for a refund/extension for my pre-paid services between now and when this 'fix' is released.We do apologize for the inconvenience caused in this regards please accept your apologizes.
We would like to inform you that if you update the new application on your device you will be able to use the map on your device and you will not be able to use the HD traffic properly on your device.
In this case we suggest you to update the application if you would like to update the map on your device.
If not then we request you to wait till the latest application is released in the market for your device and our technical team is trying there best to resolve the application issue with your device.
Once the application is release you will get an update on TomTom Home and as you are our valued customer and as you have subscribe to newsletter we will send you an e-mail regarding the same once the application is released.
TomTom HOME has a General Preference for Startup of HOME, which can be unchecked:Ummm... I'm sure it *used* to be there!
All I can find now is the option to NOT receive beta releases, but I guess this last update wasn't classed as a beta.
This could be an insoluble problem then......
To be fair, that's only half the story, and the other half is what makes it worse.That's not the same thing at all Zeus...
We were talking about the option of whether Home checks for updates for Home itself. It's that option that has gone.
No, hold on, I WAS being fair.... we've said all that alreadyTo be fair, that's only half the story, and the other half is what makes it worse..
Firstly install version 2.7 (or older ver of 2.8) but do not run it.
If you go to: C:\Program Files\TomTom HOME 2\xul there is a file called 'application.ini'.
If you open this file in notepad, you will see there is a section which says 'Version=184.108.40.2064'. Simply change this to read 'Version= 10.000".
TomTom HOME will now be tricked into thinking it is the latest version. It will therefore not force you to update to the newer version 2.8.
Two reasons:why not fall back to an earlier version of HOME (I'm using 220.127.116.116), and then edit that file that says it's version 10 so it will no longer look for HOME update? Much easier I think than having to use your Firewall.
TomTom, are you listening? ................... I doubt it very much. :flypig:The sheer arrogance of a company believing its update is more important than anything else I'm doing on my computer is beyond offensive. This sort of BS is the sort of thing that will probably cause me to buy a Garmin next time I need a new GPS.
TomTom, are you listening?
