    Shoe finally dropped. What I find totally strange is the specific list of models that will not be supported with new maps.

    For example, they are dropping support of the GO 730, but not the GO 720? Both have the same SD slots to overcome memory issues, but SD is limited in size.
    They are dropping support of the GO 540 but not the GO 340? These have equivalent internal memory and neither have HD or uSD slots, so how can one be supported and not the other?

    I suspect that the published list is going to need to be modified to reflect reality.

    I was told yesterday that this applies to all NAV2 and older devices.

    If anyone has an active subscription, updates will be supplied until the end of the term.
    New subscriptions for maps, traffic, etc. will no longer be sold.

    That is what the Support person told me.

    Let's see if Marlies clarifies this.
