TomTom Map Updates

I mentioned recently about a great new method of keeping your TomTom up-to-date. What I didn’t mention was about the problem that then ensued as I found that a map updates completely wipes your favourites. Oh yes.

It would appear the “bug” (I’m sure it’s an intended feature) has been around for some time – certainly I’m looking at a forum entry about it from the beginning of this year.

Anyway, the answer is to backup before you do a map update and then restore the file MapSettings.cfg.

Come on TomTom – sort this one out!
