    Afraid there's going to be a lot of links to clean up -- if you can find them all!

    Yeah, links are broken since they went to a new provider.

    My NAM "AK">GO 930 NAM, 4GB + SDHC4GB, TomTom HOME NAV2 is of course not on the UK list.

    "J6">GO 930, 4GB + SD 2GB, TomTom HOME NAV2
    "JH">GO 930, 4GB + SD 2GB, TomTom HOME NAV2


    Didn't we recently have a fellow with a GO 940 who put in an 8GB card in this one?

    No reason why he couldn't have. They work just fine. However, availability of a card slot doesn't seem to be the sole determining factor in "EOL".

    Looks like we are going to have to hack the older models since TomTom is not going to honor the lifetime maps. Typical corporate squeeze to force people to buy more from them.

    They have been going downhill ever since they introduced the version 10 navcore and started preventing people from accessing the device outside of that buggy tomtom website.

    This latest ploy is designed to almost entirely wipe out lifetime maps for most of the older devices.

    Absolutely shameful on TomTom's part to do this. My documentation and even the TT Home website never mentions that they can or will discreetly eliminate lifetime maps.

    This particular move will ensure TT loses a lot of its customer base.

    Tomtom has said that devices with lifetime maps will continue to get them.

    And EOL devices have received map updates. My XXL540TM has gotten four updates since being declared EOL last year.

    I don't quite understand, could you explain that.
    It is my understanding that on NAV2 devices, those that connect via HOME, one could access the tree.
    Anything since has been using first MyTomTomSupportApplication, renamed to MyDrive Connect.
    That does not appear to be the case according to Tom K. who just reported updating with the same device.
    I doubt that it was envisioned 4+ years ago that the lanes on parking lots would be included in their maps. The explosive increase in map size started to show up about 2 years ago.

    Yes, see post #7 as well. That 740 a TM model.
    However, I understand the comment about "version 10". He's saying that the Nav3 and Nav4 devices no longer provide file system access, which is correct.
    One must use the web site to move personal content (*.ov2) to these devices.

    Next time I visit sis will try another update of the TT XXL550 I gifted. I have struck out 3 times so far just being offered a discounted new device.

    Will report back sometime this year on this when I try again, will also do screenies to document what happens.
