Ciao tutti, received advice via email that a map update was ready. Colnnected my TomTom Go 710 one hour 54 mins ago via a WiFi broadband connection and it is still downloading map. Do I abort, or just stick it out?
If it was available on CD, I'd have it then, I hate downloading updates, especially tomtom ones, as I use three tomtom satnavs, and Tomtom Home is always saying they're not my registered unit, well it couldn't be could it, seeing as I sent it back as non working and it doesn't accept my replacement, I sent loads of emails to them asking how to register at least one of the ones I actually can use, but not a single reply yet.
I did look at this before and their is a reason for it.
If you trawl through the map folder opening the files in notepad until you find your favorites they are stored as name and logtitude and latitude, you could then remove this file and put it back once you have done the upgrade.
Having said that it always wipes on map upgrades and one favorite would not work from a uk map in a euro map, I've always put this down to map corrections etc changing details.
you could always try it if needs be. I found the POI creation toll on this site excellent for adding sites that im visiting and that does not get wiped out.
Ciao tutti, and thanks for all your replies. In the end the whole process took 2 and a half hours, including a back-up. Way too long for me, my patience threshold doesn't stretch so far. However 'schadenfreude' and all that seeing as some of you have an even longer process :roll:
Won't be updating again in a hurry.
So thats where my favourites went!
I have no room left on the memory of my tomtom 730 although I had until the last update which I had to donwload to sd card. Anyone know if the machine reads from the sd card and machine simultaneously or do I need to remove some stuff from the tomtom?
