Tom Tom wanted to charge me for updated maps after I owned the device for a year. Many of my friends have Garmins, so my next GPS will be a Garmin. Internal memory of my Tom Tom is 1 gig, that memory was beginning to become full, so I put in a 2 gig SD card expecting to use the device for a several more years.
Tom Tom has adapted to the growing smartphone and tablet market in recent years, even licensing its data for use in i OS 6, but today's update affects users of more traditional standalone devices.
Not expecting to be able to buy a Colorado only map I was ready to buy a US only map, but my device is what Tom Tom calls an end of life product and tries to sell me a new one but Tom Tom Software made the decision that I can no longer buy anymore maps for this particular device, therefore, the lifetime map updates is a lie.
When you buy a new one then you can't believe what they say.
With the M50 trafic volumes back to those celtic xxxxx days, it is always worth checking before heading out.
Available soon, the new Tom Tom Spark is the first GPS fitness watch to incorporate a MP3 player and is capable of holding up to 500 songs.
