There is no monthly fee - the only costs are if you opt for the traffic package or wish to upgrade the basic software or purchase additional or updates maps.

Even the Speed camera locations are a free update.

thanks, bremner, just what I needed to know.

You just need to update the maps every couple of years.

Only a £100 or so.

I get upset when I see "only" and "£100" next to each other.

You don`t "need" to update the maps. After all, how many new roads are built?. Your TomTom will continue to work OK.

If it is a TomTom Go you are referring to, then there is a very useful dedicated forum.

Edinburgh and Manchester seem to be changing theirs on an annual basis.

Your Tom Tom is not much use in a new "One Way System" if it has the year before lasts version of the map.

wee eddie:

I take your point. However, all "new" SatNav maps are at least a year or so out of date, so they will never show the latest changes.

I see that the upgrade for the TomTom Go this June cost 79 euros, (about £55).
