    Default Software update on all TomTom consumer products?

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    If this is true then:-
    a) Be very careful what you wish for as these may or may not be patchable
    b) Don't automatically allow TTHome to update to this until you know what's in it & what's not
    c) If you DO choose to allow this then ffs do a Full Windows backup first
    d) Don't allow this if you're currently running 8.398 truck navcore untill confirmed here
    e) I'm sure the gurus WILL eventually create SE versions

    I wouldn't be too concerned about any update.
    1. Fact: TT would not update any NC for that except they would be forced to update and that would only affect the help and about files that noone reads anyway.
    2. Fact: If anything is really updated TT would go the easy way and do it over a Home update the effectively update the terms and conditions - again only in the about and help section.
    3. Fact: Even if TT would be stupid enough to put all the money and effort into new NC's for all devices our users would simply put one of the already available NC's back on and the problem is solved.

    This whole thing is still about the date TT sold to "improve" the locations of speed traps.
    They were forced to fully agree with the privacy act and proove no personal data was submitted to third parties.
    Instead of worrying about such unintersting things any user could be more concerned about the fact that TT knows for years if a user uses genuine maps and NC's.
    Since TT is not doing anything about it (except the NC10-11 versions which are caused by the greed not to pay Mircrosoft mony for the use of the FAT system) there can't be enough evidence or reason to panic in this way
    So whatever will happen, I'm sure it is not enough for us to think about it

    Maybe just a rev with reworded licence agreement etc but on PGPSW they are thinking there might just be bug fixes too but who knows
