How old is it Jean?
As Doug says, mine was pretty much an hour or so even from new.

Blimey, I had forgotten about this thread, it’s a year ago in 8 more days when I started it.
The TomTom has become usable to me now.
However I installed Navmii on my handy/mobile last week and that seems ok as well.

Just been chatting with our French neighbours who swear by 'Waze'. They say it's completely free but they are not taking the data use into consideration.

Ray.

The FSA formerly SIB & PIA licensed a twice convicted fraudster to handle our life´s savings. Guess what? He robbed us of £750,000. So they changed their name again to the FCA.

I never got on with Waze.

I now only use them in this order.

Google maps, you can download the area you are going to if you have WiFi before setting off, but it uses very little data and you get traffic updates to your route.

Maps.me mainly to navigate to our personal wild camping places.

CoPilot, I don't use this so much since I started using Google maps, but I paid for it so I always keep it up to date.

I also have Sysgic, but only used it for testing, so free version only, not tried it properly, and I used to have "here" too, but never used that in anger.

Ialso have what threee words in case of emergency as it only uses whatever other sat nag you have installed.

I have so many as they can all hang at any time until you get to WiFi to boot them up again.

We have a Tomtom 6000 and it must be quite a few years old now but still works fine. My only criticism is the batteries are rubish, I fitted a new battery and still find it flat if we dont use it for a while.

As I'm a dyslexic and I've had two stokes you are going to see spelling/grammar mistakes, so please don't act superior and point them out!

All tomtom batteries die, but I don't worry about it as it's always plugged in when we use it.

Yes but if the battery is flat when you start it up it can take an age before you can put in your destination, well it does on ours.

It is a while since I've used ours so can't remember but I had it set to go on with the ignition so it may well have been sorted by when I was ready, I tend to drive to the area I'm going to then set it for the locality.
