    Sorry to say, but a seemingly very large number of the Camper 1005 units have been bricked by the TomTom update.
    Especially since we know this from the large number of reports here, I would push that line with TomTom when I talk to them.

    1) Do NOT let the person on the other end claim that it's some 'new' issue.
    2) The "That model is obsolete; how about a great deal on a new one?" line isn't cutting it with us here.

    It's definitely something about their update, not operator error, that is causing this.
    There's a thread somewhere here, and no doubt on the TomTom corporate support board, where a small handful of users have found some method to recover from this, but it's my impression that the problem returns after a short period of time.
