Start 52
(I am in the UK).

I have just purchased a Start 52.


According to the information I was given when I bought it Speed Cameras are included, there is nothing about paying for it. They certainly seem to work, although a couple are missing. I shall have to check that later.

My question is, while I was talking to the lady at Tom Tom I was told that Speed Cameras are free but only for three months. Then you have to pay for them. Does anyone know whether this is correct or are free cameras a permanent feature?

Cheers

Xavier

Yes, I suppose I can.

Halfords are a very odd company. They advertise on the Internet at one price, tell you that they will 'match' prices, whatever that means, and when you go to the store they offer a different, higher price. If you ask them why you're being asked for a higher price they seem to feign surprise and then offer you for the lower one.

It isn't illegal of course, the price(s) you see on the Internet does not offer a contract, just a treat. But it seems rather underhand to me :(

I'll let you know what happens.

UK consumer law prohibits a company from taking purchases back for credit?
You have no right to return an item bought in store unless it is faulty or misdescribed. A retailer can take it back if they wish but Halfords are not likely to want a used device back.

This is getting silly.
In post #6 you stated that it is not allowed under UK consumer law to ask for a rebate or return.
Later you introduced right.

OK, I should have been clearer. You can ask for anything you want but with Halfords unless it is your legal right it ain't gonna happen.
