    While updating my TomTom today I was prompted that a new version of the application is available for download (the one that resides on the GPS unit, not TomTom Home). It says version 9.465.

    Does anybody have any information about this update and is it recommended?

    I use custom menus and wonder if it is going to mess them up.

    The main change is the switch of Google search to Tomtom Places on LIVE units.

    Another huge change is that it fixes the Uturn bug in the USA.

    Sorry, my reply was with the US XXL non-LIVE unit in mind. So the only line that seemed to apply to me was "Several performance improvements and bug fixes have been made" :D

    That would have been nice to put in the official announcement. I'm not sure I know what that U-Turn bug was - mvl can you point me to a thread or recap the issue?

    I applied the update without any impact to my custom menus.

    See here, among many other places. It is the same issue alfie67 is referencing.

    "Kate" never has been available on the new "NAV3" models, and neither have any of the other TTS voices we had on the old units.

    TomTom changed the third-party provider of the TTS "engine" and those voices all depend on that particular engine to work.

    Similarly, the new voices (eg Serena - UK Female) will never be available for the older models.

    But I'm amazed that there is no longer a choice of TTS voices now (even between a male and female voice).
