Whether it's 3, 5 or 7, it's not lifetime. They should be forced to stop using that wording.
I believe this is a good device but lifetime updates are not lifetime updates, so I won't be buying it.

I would say lifetime updates gives you at least 6-7 years which aint bad as you get free updates on maps, traffic and cameras.

Thats okay if you in a good reception area . I was touring the Island of Mull last week and google maps wouldn't work as there is no cell reception apart around Tobermory luckily i still had my old Tom Tom which no longer gets updates but worked fine on satellite reception.

I eat regularly at McDonald's, so for me it might be lifetime updates.
My TomTom sits in a drawer not being used since the supposed lifetime updates ended after 25 months before I would give TomTom another penny Google Maps will be my choice from now on.

I think if i downloaded maps for all the places i tour i would soon use up all my phone memory.

It’s called forward planning or do you just go out in the morning to the shops and end up in the outer Hebrides like a senior citizen with Alzheimer’s?

Free Wi-fi at McDonald’s so you could easily update or download google maps.
I cannot workout why people go on about Google maps. Ok for looking to where you may be going, navigation very iffy.

Why not just use a Sat-nav not a Cell-nav.

No it doesn't your kidding yourself on . Your cell phone can't triangulate if there a no other cell mast to triangulate to . Okay if your just driving about cities no good for in the country side. Hence why they are called cellphones not satphones which cost thousands.

It clearly says lifetime of a product
U don't get three years out of a £1000 iPhone but u want 20 years map updates on a £70 basic model which u didn't even bought from authorised dealer?
The waze is dependent on your phone GPS and 4g which always lose signals in any slightly remote area
Only reliable option out there is tomtom

Google maps is supported from iOS 10 which is nearly 3 years old my phone will be supported for another 3/4 years meaning google maps will work.

It has assisted Gps which needs wi-fi or 3g to work. Not real gps .

I’m not arguing. Feel free to waste your money on tomtom. I don’t care.
Fine just don't ever try to drive round the Highlands and Island with google maps you'll soon be lost.

I drive for a living and switched from tomtom to google maps in 2011 because google maps was much better at the time with much more accurate traffic info. Ive been using google maps for 7 years until recently when i bought a tomtom via 53. Google maps is every bit as good as a satnav and it definately isnt iffy. I travel all over the country daily into the country where theres no signal and never have a single issue and the diagrams and instructions are perfect. My only moan is that it takes a while for new housing estates to be updated. The only reason i purchased a tomtom is because ive finally got sick of taking my phone in and out of holder at every delivery and people keep calling or i get notifications at crucial points in my journey and my maps disappear. But the tomtom is no better than the google maps sat nav

Google maps works perfect and i used it for the last 7 years but recently bought tomtom via 53. I drive for a living and its just become a pain using google maps when someone calls ect and keep putting phone in and out a holder. So to say sat navs are a pointless waste of money below is daft for a delivery driver, the tomtom is better and a 5 year life time is plenty and well worth the money but maybe for someone using a tomtom just a few times a year its not worth splashing out

As I said one size does not fit all. When I get a call I just push the button on my steering wheel and talk. Then again I’m not a heavy user of navigation or receiving a lot of calls during driving.
I would imagine a professional driver like yourself would benefit from a dedicated device.
I’m not sure why the other guys are getting worked up about all this.

I dont know about the other guys lol but my issue is im in and out of different vehicles all day long as a car delivery driver i drive 8 different cars a day on a typical day so i cant keep pairing my phone up to the cars its to much hassle so i cant just press the sterring wheel. So as you say yeah a tomtom is a much better choice for me and other professional drivers. Mines really good uses my phones data for traffic and doubles as a handsfree bluetooth speaker for calls
I bought a TomTom 5100 off ebay a couple of weeks ago for £60 (not sure what extra this packs, but pretty close with a sim included for traffic and cameras) - was great getting me across to Poland and back and avoiding all the roadworks across Germany. Whilst Google maps was quite good, it was stumped every time there was an accident or roadworks or rush hour ahead of us, whereas the dynamic routing on TT was great.

I also like the fact I can just leave it in the car and don't need to take up my phone.

Google maps and tomtom use same system to get traffic info so did you not have data access on your phone ? Tomtom uses the vodafone network and apple phones to get traffic data and google maps uses android phones
got mine for £156.60 as Nationwide simply rewards had 10% off £16 plus 3% quidco £5.40

TomTom are stopping support for devices after 5 years now. Presumably that's the inbuilt obsolescence time period.

Why thank you kind sir! As a matter of fact I am retired and do go out shopping in the morning and have ended up hundreds of miles from home at the end of the day. To my knowledge I do not have Alzhheimer's but would forget my bo!!ocks if they weren't in a sack
Life must be so boring for you planning everything in advance.
