my ammusement with this though is that if it is the car navigation thingi;

to whom do you send out the distress call when you are navigated into the large field of cows around the non-existant bend you have just negotiated ....

ok the 910 veresion of tom tom may contain malware ;but it shouldn't present to much of a problem if ytou have the basic protection.

Never been in the cow feild situation lol

virus/trojan Will not be on the Tom Tom software it will be on the site most likely, waiting for victims. So it can put it on your computer at download

Thanks everybody i reckon ive got reasonable protection on my pc to take care of any threat.

The malware was in a batch of 910's produced in a particular week.

Since you need to connect your device to a computer, this is where the malware is introduced to your computer.

The malware was pre-installed on the TomTom 910 only.

"Popular navigation aid TomTom has admitted that a batch of its latest devices have shipped with a virus pre-installed"

You do not need to connect your TomTom to a computer as everything you need to get going is in the box. However if you want to you can connect to a computer updates etc.
