    Plugged mine in t'other day to find there is an update for the Western Europe Maps. Just paid and updated mine a month ago so why a 2 gigabyte update already?

    PS very pleased with the updated maps...much better.

    Hi Ken, have a look at this from Pocket GPS world.

    TomTom update to V9 is broken. Do not update!!!

    ReadMore DO NOT UPGRADE THE LATEST TOMTOM RELEASE

    Swindon 1 year onThe quality standards that we were used to with TomTom seem to be slipping somewhat. It would seem like the latest version 9 software update is not compatible with a lot of UK TomTom x40 hardware devices. In particular if you upgrade to V9 then you will lose all your TomTom Live services.

    Our current advice is not to update your TomTom when asked on connecting to TomTom Home. Stay on version 8 for the moment. If it is already too late and you have performed the update our article provides details to revert back to the V8 software.


    Sorry to the bearer of bad news.

    Keith
