    Default Smart media TomTom update.

    I've had an email from TomTom to carry out a critical update by the 6th April 2019. Has anyone else had this and carried out the update?

    Ps... I've heard back from TomTom in answer to me querying the validity of the email and its legit.

    It can affect all sorts of GPS that isn't web connected and which doesn't self update, but few seem to care. No one seems able to give a straight answers as to how badly the date discrepnacy affects accuracy. If it's only a loss of resolution of a metre or two it matters little. It its half a mile, kr even an inability to get a lock at all, it starts to get a bit annoying.

    Edit - according to Garmin, navigation and location will function as normal. It's stuff like estimated journey times, arrival time, displayed clock times etc, which rely on the correct clock time which will be affected. Navigation and location instead relies on differences in timing between signals from multiple satellites and this, they say, will remain unaffected. If that's corrects it might not be quite as irksome as I'd thought.

    The difference between good and great is nothing more than effort and commitment.
