TomTom ditches map updates for some sat-navs
A number of customers with TomTom sat-navs have been told that their devices will no longer receive map updates. In an email to customers, the firm added: "We will continue to provide quick GPS fix updates so your device will continue to function as it does now." Paula Hatcher's partner bought her the Start 20 device because her previous sat-nav - the same model - had not come with lifetime maps. He said the market for personal sat-navs had been eroded by the rise of smartphone apps that offer similar services and frequent updates. "Within months the [sat-navs] will quickly become out-of-date when those updates stop appearing," he added.
