The copy failed within 5 minutes, claiming that there was a "write error", something to this extent: ERROR: Home Base/IO: Error writing file: K:\USA_Canada_and_Mexico_P\@ .\portable\cfile.cpp(1947)Now, if you've got a degree in Computer Science, you can see this is some sort of I/O error, and it's being thrown from a C file that is internal to the "Home" software's IO module...?!?!!
This sounds great - you can download the most recent map from Tom Tom via their "Home" software, and it will install itself on the GPS device, giving you the most up-to-date maps possible.
In theory, this is a great idea, and solves the need for Tom Tom to supply a DVD with maps on it inside the shipping box, etc. The "Home" software downloaded the maps no problem, worked like a charm, and only took 10 minutes or so for approx 1.6 Gb of files, pretty sweet.
Now, I just tap in a postcode and house number and the Tom Tom does the rest.
The one annoying thing with Tom Toms is that you have to keep up with the latest changes to speed cameras and routes.
