I have owned several garmin models over the years, and with new model the software is worse - they keep stripping it down.

The latest Garmin models don't even have passwords, so if it gets stolen the thief gets a free gps AND has all my personal data. Absurd.

So, which tomtom models have a password that must be entered upon power-up (as an option)? Any?
 
Talking about stripped down models...………

There are absolutely NO Tomtom models currently on the market that allow for a numeric password to access since all that -- or most, anyway -- rely upon Home to use the password and all these models (known as Nav 2 devices) are End of Life by Tomtom, meaning no more updates.

OK, thank you for the reply.

This is sad. iPhone is getting MORE secure and increasing features while the GPS manufacturers are ever LESS secure and kill off features.

It is no wonder they continually lose market share. We are returning the garmin we just bought and rather than buy a tomtom we will continue using our ancient nuvi 255. Security is more important to us than newer, better hardware.
