Question
speed cameras
Is the speed camera updates done for free, Really?

Hi Pareve,
Yes really - for a limited time - they are free. The amount of free time you get with your product model may vary, so read the product descriptions carefully. With Tom Toms, map and speed camera updates are free for a limited period of time. It is a kind of inducement to persuade you to subscribe to the Tom Tom update service, which is usually annually.

However Tom Toms are worth it, as they are incredibly reliable and easy to use. I would far rather pay for updates than suffer that horrible sinking feeling that your Tom Tom is lost and neither of you have got the faintest idea where you are. With Tom Toms which are regularly updated, that won't happen. So relax, panic over and now you can head off into the great unknown with renewed confidence thanks to your updated Tom Tom!

Hi Pareve, thanks for your question.

The safety camera alerts for the TomTom XL IQ 4.3 Inch Routes Edition2 with UK & ROI Sat Nav require no subscription. They come included with the price. I hope this is helpful.

Have a nice day.

you seem to have had a better response than me. i asked the same question as i only found out same as you (after purchase) but the answer i have received only tells me that the sat nav is not advertised in the spring/summer 2012 catalogue as having blue tooth. Good luck with going into store with you proof of purchase and good luck in getting your money back, i don't seem to have been offered the same option

Thank you for your question.

The TomTom XL IQ Routes Edition 2 with UK and ROI GPS Sat Nav comes equipped with all the cables you need to start up, including the USB cable that connects your TomTom to your computer. There is no additional cost to first load maps onto your TomTom and if a newer map has been released since your device was manufactured, you can download the latest map for free from the TomTom website.

Thank you for your question.

Having looked into your query, I have spoken with a technical advisor from Tom Tom and he has stated that apart from charging the unit at home, it is possible to charge the GPS via a USB connection, perhaps a laptop computer.

Question
Are UK maps already on this model, or have they to be downloaded?
Never had sat nav. previously, want one that is easy to use.
Product information says "Pre- loaded maps for UK and R o I", but at another point it says"Please note maps need to be downloaded from a computer onto this sat nav"
Which of these is correct.
Do the accessories with this enable me to run it from the cigarette lighter/ 12v accessories socket in the car?
