They're not 'scare stories', our TomTom unit in the car needed updating ... I've put a thread on about it.
My point exactly, some media made it sound like the end of the world.They were scare stories in the sense that some I read claimed the devices would fail to work or become faulty at some time in the future, updates were a simple fix and should have been the headline. "Satnavs may need an update" would have been better than "GPS rollover means satnavs will no longer work"
Really? We have 100gb each month on hubby's mobile phone which we also use for our home broadband too (no land-lines at all), but there may be times when the signal isn't great so I'd rather not have to rely on internet for sat naving especially as we are capped to 15gb per month when abroad.Yes, but unless you're living in the 1990s data is included in your monthly bill
But if you download the route and use it without internet, what happens if you want to detour?If you set a route in Google maps it offers tbe option of downloading so that t doesn't conk out if you lose signal.
I am with Vodafone and can use all my data abroad
