i got the 1.9g update

My 30 days were over so i wrote to tomtom and complaint cause it was 36days when i discover that feature

so the send me the 1.9g throught home when i was checking update... i had to installed it on a SD card cause the maps wouldnt fit my internal memory

after having it installed it said that the maps take 1.5 or 1.6g on my SD card

hi sam,
i also tried calling them and it was pretty obvious in 1 minute that he had no idea about what he was talking about! if you are unlucky you will get a tech support like that!
i guess all of us have the v710.15** version.... what dcourteau got is the v 710.1609.... no idea what is going on with tomtom with all the irregularities in these map versions... and their US website for maps has been down for a long time now.
guess an update is due very soon;)

the guy just keep telling me I have the same version that he has however what he has now is 710.17xx even newer and he said its the same. No diff than I asked him why the extension is diff he just keep telling me its the same. Sorry guys, but I do have to say I am very piss off so far. I ask him since I only have the device for about a week and a half why cant I have the newest version. And he said its the same and now I am on hold again. He is pushing me away from TomTom!

I've been trying for 2 weeks now to download the new maps.
The process is SLOW....several times it says 40+ HOURS! (I've just cancelled each time after more than a hour..)

Support says that it should not take more than 20 minutes....:(

Took a bit less than 1 hour 15 min to download the whole 1.9g maps on a normal high speed connection

Hi all, new to the thread. Just got my 720 today, had been reading this forum all week, so kinda knew what I needed to start off with. My trouble is this......Have gone to TT and tried to download the new NA map twice now, first time it was normal speed (about 40 mins) and just as it almost finished got an "Internal Server Error", let me clear it out and try again, this time took about 90 mins., same thing, right at end it errors out. Anyone else having this trouble tonite???? What should I do? Keep trying or something different. Thanks alot, this forum looks great!!!

hi style master,
try it more...i had the same problem, but the third time it did download. it is probably because of the huge server demand when so many try to download the stuff placed in their servers. make sure your hard drive has enough space to download it.
