    I was just at the TomTom site and noticed new maps being offered for new customers. The only prob. is, they say it will take 3-4 weeks.
    Im taking vacation in 2 weeks and don't want to miss having updated software.

    Does anyone know if the Updated maps are Product Code specific?
    If not, can someone hint where to d/l them?


    Thanks

    Not sure what you are after here. If you are looking to buy Tomtom Nav6, then I'm sure you could do so before your trip. If you are looking to upgrade from Nav5, then others that have purchased it recently received the DVD quickly so that would probably work as well. If you just want updated maps for your trip, you can download those from the Tomtom site. I believe the new maps will work on Nav5 (saw something on this in the support answers) so if your hardware won't take Nav6, you could still get updated maps.

    I already purchased TomTom6 package 5 months ago. I was just at the website and it shows there are updated maps based on my product code.
    I didn't want to pay for shipping and wait 3-4 weeks for a CD.

    I'm surprised that the maps are actually newer than what you have already but if they are, I would expect that you could get them before your trip. Many people that have ordered the map update received it quickly. Those of us that ordered it before it was actually released had to wait a bit. The basic question is whether there any significant changes between your map version and what is shipping now. My map version is v665.1294 which I received about 2 weeks ago. What is your map version?

    Wilsonb, I think the maps listed are the same that you have. You should be able to download them through the TomTom Home application on your computer that would have been installed when you loaded TT6. I was fooling around with that this past weekend and it seemed to offer the ability to download anything related to your TomTom license. Everything I had was up-to-date but I was able to grab the Dunkin' Donuts points-of-interest file.

    Not all updates are shipping within a week. I ordered 1/18 -- nothing yet.

    BTW, it took me a little under two weeks for my update to arrive.

    Good question. I was wondering that myself and according to the website, when I enter my Product Key it tells me I need an update.

    How do I check the version of maps?

    Go into TomTom and tap the GPS strength indicator bars on the right side of the main screen. Then tap where it says version on the right side.

    I show Map: 'usa_and_canada' v665.1293.

    I wonder how much difference there is in .0001?

    I ordered the maps online. Could someone also post?

    Last night I found a phone number to call in the us and hotsynced it last night..

    -- found it
    TomTom Customer Support at (866) 486-6866
    hold time is 40min. How lame

    finally got a women and was on the other phone with something else.. Asked her to hold for 30sec. She hung up. ;-(
    TomTom is so worried about piracy, they create bad paid customer experiences


    Thanks

    I use the regional maps as well. All of my maps seem to have the same version v665.1294. My app version is 6.010. Maybe the site is wanting to update your app? Do you use Tomtom Home?
