    I just knew someone would ask me a technical question lol. It says version 9.510 on the screen if that helps?
    I believe that there are maps loaded for most of Europe but never had need for this facility. Our newest Sprinter already has satnav fitted so we're no longer using this satnav.

    I have tried to interrogate the machine but cannot find out how old the maps are but I believe that its fairly inexpensive to update them anyway. I very rarely used this satnav so I'm really sorry that I cannot tell you more about it. There is a CD in the box to do with this satnav.
    Hope this helps..Robert.

    Hi, when unit is turned on, tap the lower right hand corner. Where it says version 9.510, tap this. This will bring up a screen with writing. About 6th line down will be the map version, ie. 937_5945 or similar. Nigel

    Is there a typo in the number? The current wersion of the latest maps are 940_????. Tomtom update maps approx every quarter, jumping 5 each time i.e 925, 930, 935 (then had 937) and now 940.

    Maps starting 880 were released in Oct 2011.

    If your Map is a 700 series one, it is ancient in GPS terms. Can you check

    Hi, The map is at least 5 years out of date. Based on the fact that a map update is £60, do you wish to reconsider asking price. I am looking for unit to use as spares as my screen has started playing up. Nigel

    I'm a tad confused as the machine says it was updated in April 2013 so in my opinion the mapping is reasonably up to date. The price stays as it is. I just thought I'd offer the satnav to forum users before popping it onto fleabay.
    If you only wanted it for the screen I'd have thought the mapping would have been irrelevant?

    The april 2013 is the date you last updated unit via tomtom home (i.e updated the gps quick fix) Nothing to do with maps.

    As the unit is so old, and you can now buy units with a lifetime of free updates for £79.99 or a single latest map guarantee for £59 (check out Halfords), the price is to say the least OTT or in other words a rip off to forum users. Good luck trying to sell it at £110

    Will keep looking for screen on fleabay

    Charmed I'm sure & that's no way to speak to another forum user. The machine software was updated a few days ago so me thinks the rip off merchant is yourself! I'd never rip anyone off & this little satnav is true & honest. I'm also confused as to why you were interested in the first place if things are so cheap? I think I smell SHITE !!!!!

    As I said, I am looking for unit as spares. Whilst I may not live in Scotland, I do have a certain number of the natives characteristics :roflmto::roflmto::roflmto::roflmto::roflmto::roflmto:

    I have this unit and pay approx £ 30 forWestern Europe map updates for the year, giving me 4 updates.
    I was not aware this unit can be programmed to setup for height, width etc?
    I will have a look tomorrow.
    I would not know its worth.

    These units are so very much better than the cheap & cheerful ones from Halfrauds. They can also be programmed with the fuel consumption of your Motorhome & the price of fuel thus allowing them to work out the approximate cost of any journey. All in all they're great little satnavs & extremely good little gadgets.

    The units at Halfords (as quoted above) are Tom Tom models. The only difference to yours and these is that your operating system is windows based whilst the newer models are linux based.

    With respect, you are misrepresenting the item that you are trying to sell. You have the box standard Tomtom Go720 with a Western_Europe' v705.1480 map, which is at least 5 years old. It is not a TOMTOM Truck or Camper, and thus does not guide you away from routes with low bridges / weight restrictions. It is a standard car model.

    Your claim that the Tomtom is updated is at best misleading at worse a lie! You claim you updated the tomtom a few days ago, when thats all you did is update the Navcore (the operating system) which is done automatically when you log onto tomtom home. The Map is hopelessly outdated and will result in you driving 'across fields'.

    A quick search has indicated that people with TT720 units were talking about Map; "Western_Europe' v705.1480 in 2007 so it would appear that the unit has never had a map update since then whilst its operating system has been updated. Also the option to select vehicle type/dimensions was not available in 2007 and so the map would be very unlikely to have the data to check for road widths etc.

    TomTom GO720 Truck Europe same as the one we have as marked on the box on ebay used & listed at 14o quid. Seems to me that you'd have been very happy if you'd managed to buy it from me for 50p.
    Now will you go pester someone who gives a toss & get off my case.
