i can kick myself for not reading the fine print myself when i purchased the tom gps.
i went to makro to buy a garmin gps...while looking at the different units i noticed the tom tom was on special...now i know why.
it had free maps updates etc but i didnt read the fine print...for a short time period after the purchase 30 days.
so now i decided to update my unit and load all the these new 10 word long street names which nobody can pronounce...so that i can find my way around durban...
to find that everything is at a fee...map downloads...voice tags everything...nothing is free
so next time you decide to invest in a GPS consider the price of the unit and the update cost of the maps...
garmin you have to buy the software then only connect to a PC and do an update
tom tom has a 30 day trial period then you pay if you dont connect to a pc within 30 days you also pay...like garmin.
cost to upgrade every year R300 - 400
