Map Updates Europe zone v950- No Street names displayed


Could you please share experiences if you have any regarding Europe Eurozone 2. I have the 950 version of this map and travel often to Bosnia, Montenegro and Albania. Often I do not have street numbers so it is hard to find accommodation etc.

I am planning the update to the latest version of the map (10.15). Since it is quite expensive I was wondering if anyone knows how the latest map is an improved version of the 4 year old 950. Are street numbers expanded, map interface improved? I am interested in everything. I just want to know what I am paying for.

Thank you very much for your time on this....

Also consider the first two characters of the serial number as:-

"AQ">Via 130 / 135, 2GB + micro-SDHC, MyDrive Connect NAV3 Eol
"AV">Via 130 / 135, 2GB + micro-SDHC, MyDrive Connect NAV3 Eol
"AW">Via 130 / 135, 4GB + micro-SDHC, MyDrive Connect NAV3
"AX">Via 130 / 135, 8GB + micro-SDHC, MyDrive Connect NAV3
"BO">Via 130 / 135, 4GB + micro-SDHC, MyDrive Connect NAV3
"BP">Via 130 / 135, 8GB + micro-SDHC, MyDrive Connect NAV3
"BS">Via 130 / 135, 4GB + micro-SDHC, MyDrive Connect NAV3
"BT">Via 130 / 135, 4GB + micro-SDHC, MyDrive Connect NAV3

If it does start with either "AQ" or "AV" you will be out of luck in actually updating it as those device with 2GB of internal memory have been declared obsolete see https://www.tomtom.com/en_gb/obsolete-products/
Dear Niall, thank you for the response. I am aware of these parameters.

Try planning your route(s) that may give you a problem with https://, the route planner, if the problem still persists hold off buying the map.

MyDrive uses the latest map, so should be a good comparison with your 950 map 🙂
Sorry do I understand it well? TO go to My Drive and use the Route Planner if that is better informed than my current 950? If yes, it means TomTom is using the latest version of Europe map on its route planning interface. Makes perfect sense. Great idea!! Thank you Niall. Please let me know if I assumed incorrectly.

Thank you Ethos. I do not have problems with street names, only numbers.
