    Yes, in short

    Admin notice:

    "...Hi

    As you noticed. That we have updated the rules of the forum.
    Now we are not accepting copyright softs and maps.

    I know that alot will not like this step. But it will be safer for all....
    so we can not continue with sharing Garmin / Tomtom softwares and it is better to change the forum rules .

    The forum will be limited on on free maps / help / tutorials / Discussions / releases news..

    I feel sorry to announce that , but I would like that you understand our situaltion..."

    Very good question. Certainly ALL/ANY posts/download links to maps/speedcams/premium voices will NOT come back which is exactly what this Sub-forum was all about.

    We could possibly re post a "Meta codes for v.985/986 maps" thread as that's not copyrighted material though (but a bit useless without links to the actual maps) which ARE still available in other forums.

    And it's this UNFAIRNESS that bothered me. It's sad, gpspower has all the potential to be the best forum, now it's gonna be just another dust in the wind. I guess everyone should focus getting maps to torrent.

    Getting maps is not the problem (as we all know who can get hold of these and where they come from).
    The problem is actually posting download links for them whether they're on sharing sites like Filefactory, Zippyshare etc OR torrents etc; THAT'S what TT won't allow anymore on this forum.

    To be fair, WE are stealing copyright maps etc which have to be purchased and are licensed for one device and then sharing them around the world for free. If I was a TT shareholder I would be pretty pi55ssed off if they allowed this to happen which reduces their profits (and therefore my dividends)
