TomTom update breaks satnav live links

Older GPS boxes borked

Application security programs and practises

TomTom has posted an update to its old Go x40 Live satnav range - now superseded by the Go x50 Live line that has broken the devices' ability to access online data sources.

Users have reported that after the company released version 9.054 of the satnav's firmware, the devices stopped receiving Live - the name TomTom gives to its online services, such as real-time traffic information - updates.

Instead, users were presented with an error message.

Whoops.

TomTom said in response that it is working an a fix the the software, but couldn't say when it may be posted.

Or whether the new release will include the voice of Brian 'Gordon's Alive' Blessed - a much-requested feature.

In the meantime, the company said, Go x40 Live owners should downgrade their satnav software to the previous version, 8.371.

The procedure for doing this can be found here. ®
