    Default Tom Tom Support

    is there an age at which TomTom stop supporting updates for old units? We have an old TOMTOM One, it's not flash but it does the job when we need it to. Will there come a day when I plug it in for an update and it says "no longer supported" or something like that?

    If you look around buddy there are plenty of maps, speedcams and allsorts of extra's you can get for free if you know what your doing. My old nav was a tomtom one and had had latest map cams voices even lane guidance.... So to answer your question yes maybe officially things may come to an end but unofficially there are ways and means to extend the life of it further..

    Well we have considered upgrading our antique but to be honest we don't use it that often and it still works.

    I updated my tom tom one to have the latest operating system and the latest maps, also fitted an adapter for a micro sd card and put the entire world on it lol, good to know seen as I doubt it will ever go out of the country but its going soon for something android based on my new stereo when it arrives

    the tom tom one is just slow when looking for things tbh for the price of a new one id be tempted to get a bottom of the range thing and keep it in the glove box

    certain torrent sites buddy if you download they will have full instructions on how to do it.. Best thing to do is but another sd card to practice on so you dont stuff anything up just copy the original card to the new one and then play.. I would give you names of places to get things but im not to sure about the rules giving names of sites that are not strictly legitimate..

    theres nothing wrong with the sites its some of the content that is naughty no reason why you cant point in the direction of a site however Im guessing you will have to do your own searching of that site for what you want rather than someone link direct to it
