    Thanks for the warning - anybody else had that, or a similar, problem?

    Care is required to avoid inadvertently initiating a map update if the WiFi you have access to is poor.

    If you start an update on a poor signal, you could end up with no map on the device so my advice would be to only perform map updates when you are at home!

    I fell foul of this on my first trip away!

    I was going to ask how you know if the signal is poor, but then I realised updates are via WiFi, not the inbuilt sim which is used for TomTom services e.g. road info etc. There is an indicator of the strength of the WiFi signal in the Settings menu.

    We live and learn!

    It is certainly worth taking a 2nd cheap or spare backup satnav saves a lot of stress - got caught out once - wife is useless at map reading wont drive van either so can be a problem - i like the ease of using sat navs so using 2 sat navs works for me - not bothered if people like what i do or not it is what i am comfortable and happy with
