I run updates on my GO5100 every tuesday and thursday afternoon. If im not mistaken I have not received any speedcam updates since tuesday april 25th..or was it even the thursday before that.

Can someone tell me what is wrong?

Hi all,

We've now found a solution to the problem with updating Speed Cameras with TomTom HOME and just released the latest cameras :D

We're very sorry for the inconvenience this has caused you and thank you for your patience!

Cheers, Mikko

    Hi Rubach,

    I'm not aware of any delivery issue at the moment. The last update was released last Thursday and according to our logs you've installed it.

    Cheers, Mikko

    Hi Rubach,

    Update to the previous: The last Speed Cameras update was released April 24th. Unfortunately, due to a technical issue we're currently not able to release Speed Cameras updates. I'll post back here when I have more news about this.

    We're very sorry for the inconvenience this is causing you!

    So... You have checked that I have installed an update... that has not been delivered...?
    Your and/or TomTom`s trustworthyness is wearing pretty thin.
    The fact that speed-camera update subscriptions has been having "issues" for years does NOT help.
    How hard can it really be to fix this problem if you apply some real resources to fix the situation.
    Its been an ongoing problem for many years!
    But hey...I guess its more costeffective to brake your promise of delivery and let your customers down a few times a year...

    BTW.. Smart move to "include" speed camera subscription with some units so that you no longer feel obliged to give customers something back for services not delivered...

    Hi Rubach,

    I only checked when you had last updated the cameras, not from when the update was. My apologies for the oversight!

    I would guess not as in the updates yesterday there was new v9,90 maps and regular map-shares...no speed cam subscription updates.

    Mikkok,

    The frustrating thing about this is, yesterday I spent an hour + on the phone to customer servives who told me that there was no issue with speed camera updates, they had me doing various things including uninstalling my speed cameras to no avail, then promised me it would be escalated and get back to me, guess what nobody did and now your saying there was a problem with the service?

    Honesty go's a long way, this is shocking customer service from TomTom, to not know your facts and to then lie to customers, I reckon Garmin will be getting a lot of new customers if this is the level of service and honesty we can expect.

    Hi XJR1300

    Sorry for the inconvenience caused. There is indeed an issue at our end with the new speed cameras updates not getting offered.

    I will send a heads up to the customer service about this. They will get back to you with more information.

    Regards
    Vikram

    Probably because the last Speed Camera update was released April 24th.
    TomTom is currently "working hard" to find a solution to a problem with the update service as stated above in this thread.
    I suggest you get in touch with UK Customer Service and have them prolong the duration of your subscription for as long as it takes TomTom to fix the issue.
    Be adviced you might experience shortcomings in the delivery of speedcam update service again during your subscription period...so you may have to claim reembursement more than at this instance.

    You should see Speed cameras as an active service under "My content" when u connect your device to a pc with TomTom MyDriveConnect. If not u need to call custom service in your country monday

    oh okay, i see that: for all d 30 countries it says 'installed on your device'. but there is no date, or which version, so made me suspicious. so d issue with d speed-camera updates is history?
    then further down (on MyDriveConnect), 'MY SERVICES' ; subscription for radar cameras valid until 2022-11-1 ?! i paid for a 1,5year extension, what does that mean? i'm confused.
    regards,
    Radek

    Rider400.
    it's good to have an update, more important would b to receive warnings about mobile units. how exactly does this work, this is based on motorists calling in and reporting a mobile radar? if so, what number does one call?
    to receive these warnings, one needs a cell-phone with internet connection & bluetooth, or is there any other way?

    Any news on the speed camera update fix yet? My subscription comes up for renewal soon and I'm loathe to pay again for such a poor service. Complete failure of pre delivery testing and shocking customer service. About time TomTom offered a one off fee to subscriber's to get lifetime speed cameras on older machines same as the newer ones!!

    Just updated my go 6000 through my drive connect. Seems to be OK. What about some compensation for the time we've not been able to update? A 6 week extension on the subscriptions would be a nice gesture!

    A nice gesture? It should be friggin mandatory by now and the TomTom CEO should e-mail every user of the service and apologize for the appauling lack in consistency the delivery of the service has had through the years.. and still to this day has!

    And what about customers with lifetime speedcameras? Will they find a 6 week exstension of the service a nice gesture or even remotely feel compensated for a service not delivered?

    Hi all,

    Customer Service handles all compensation requests regarding this. As indeed many of our customers nowadays have a Lifetime subscription for Speed Cameras, a mass compensation would not reach them. We can offer alternative compensations to these customers individually.
