I finally got round to getting the map updates.
I went for western Europe as it included GB, & I,m going on hols to Spain next year so it made sense. The cost between the GB & W Europe was not that much.
I'm on 2m BB with Telewest the download took a while. But it all installed OK, so I'm a happy bunny.
Just one word of caution, if you go for the maps I got you will need a 2Gb SD card.

Newuser2: Glad you had no difficulties. I have a Go 700 bought in June 05, and used it extensively in France, both this and last year, with almost no problems.

I decided against upgrading my maps when I realised that the, (so called), NEW mapping was the same as included on their 510, 710 and 910 models. These were released this Spring, so the NEW mapping is far from new. From what I read on the younav forum, there are still some UK roads missing that have existed for some years.

It appears that TomTom held off releasing these same maps to customers with previous models, hoping to encourage sales of their new x10 range.

I understand that TeleAtlas release new updates to their maps about 3 to 4 times a year, but obviously TomTom do not wish to buy them very often.

I wish you a really wonderful holiday in Spain next year.

Thanks anchor.
Opps should have said that I have a 300 bought early last year.
From what I can gather from other forums etc. TT were going to release the new maps much earlier in 2006
But as usual TT kept putting the release date back.
When I called CS the guy had no real idea re the release date.

Newuser2: Yes, you are correct. The original promise from TomTom was these maps would be released earlier this year. It did not happen until this month.

This tends to confirm my opinion that the delay was to encourage sales of their new x10 range. I would imagine that the TeleAtlas issue date of these "new" maps is probably around Jan or Feb 2006. This would have given time for them to be incorporated into the x10 range, which I believe are manufactured in China.
