    TomTom Home offers free SpeedCam Update?

    Please forgive a newbie question: I installed SpeedCams from this forum and patched with a keygen. So far so good, everything works! (Thanks to all contributors for the great work!)

    Now TomTom Home offers a "free update" to my US/Canadian Speed Cams. If I would let it do its thing, I suppose the Speedcams would stop working? Or in other words: is that update offer a bad thing or a good thing?

    Any help appreciated!

    The US/Canadian speed cams are free. No worry.
    As for speed cams in other maps, once *.dct is generated, it can be used for updates.
    In case of doubt, do make a backup and test. I'm sure it doesn't matter.

    I only got the update offer for USA/Canada. I let it install today - and as you said, no worries. Speedcameras still work. Thanks!

    The funny thing is that I used to be able to get update regarding speed cams from tomtom home but now I alway get an error, "The internet sever had an internal error. It may be a temporary problem. Please try again later." It's been like this for a week with no avail.

    Anybody have a clue?

    i left "changedtext" blank in setupconfig.txt. is it necessary? am i supposed to put in Go Live 940 or something? When i launched Home, it always says No Items Found whenever I check for Safety Camera updates. I have version.txt as app: 8010. running One 3rd edition, navcore 9053, 850.2783 USA_CANADA maps, and USA_CANADA Safety Cam. the only ones that work are Quickfix GPS, POI, Mapshare, Voices, Routes, Color Schemes, Routes, Images and Icons, Sounds updates. I also tried "linking" my TT with Home and it still said no items found.

    Yes they are free, but when other speedcams are subscribed to, hence once you have cracked them, you get USA and BR for free

    well are you subscribing to any speedcams? If not, do you think they come to you by automatic update, as all my 855.2884 maps did when I bought a Go Live 550 on 27/8, filled a microSDHC 16GB full of GO 850 maps and as part of Map Guarantee, got all of the cracked 850 maps upgraded to 855 for free. Doesn't work like that.
