    Conflicting information, no tomtom wce v850

    Ok so I was searching the tomtom site trying to help out a fellow member when I came across this...

    Code:
    http://uk.support.tomtom.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/12093/?locale=en_GB
    It basically says Western Europe map / Western and Central Europe map

    You may have received an email on the 8th June 2010 stating that your new map, as part of your Map Update Service, is currently available.

    This map is not actually available yet, but will be by the end of June 2010. This will be richer in detail, containing more landscape details, Points of Interest and richer graphics, as well as improved road coverage.

    You will be informed by email when your new map is available.

    Does anyone know what this is all about, have I misread something, and if its true, what have I downloaded.

    Just as it says: the delivery of the 850 map is delayed until end of June.
    I am not sure what you downloaded though!

    Well as you can see if you look through the maps on this thread there are plenty of v850 wce maps.

    Hi

    Perhaps concerning the Full "ghost" WCE_850.2800. There are files but no meta for the moment. May be too big for some PNA's memory...


    Bye

    As for the wce_850.2800 being too big for some PNA's, if you select particular devices on the TT website, eg an older ONE model or a 510 etc, it doesn't allow you to select the full 2.3GB version, and points you more in the direction of the dumbed down version without ALG, ARS, CSpeech, IQ Routes etc, so around 1.8GB which will fit on almost all PNA's without a card slot.

    As for what we've all been downloading in terms of the 2800 map, maybe its a leaked early release (I guess thats how most of these maps are obtained in the first place ??) or it was a beta version that TT were trialling that's been leaked. Either way, we won't fully know until the necessary meta is released too.

    Until then i'll just stick with my local 850.2781 map
