    hi all

    installed the Home 2.7.3.1894 few hours ago
    while checking the Home out
    came across the "Home Extension" under the Tool
    clicking to see what under it
    and got installed a extension in the computer
    which i believe is regarding to the map share
    but i uninstalled it
    do i really need this extension / map share for my unit
    if needed i will re-install it
    (my unit was not connected to the computer and or Home during these period)

    thanks in advance

    Tomtom built the extension capability so 3rd party developers could add their functionality to HOME. So far, it hasn't been used much, if at all.

    I've never disabled the mapshare extension, but I suspect that it is the one that shows how many mapshare updates are in use (the green dot in the upper right of HOME). If you don't care, then no need to reinstall.
