    It is "safe" to connect to Tomtom Home a Tomtom device with "updated maps"?

    Re: Tomtom Home

    How do you mean "updated".
    I have tomtom navigator7 which is patched, running a patched map from this site, and i connect to tomtom home everyday to download mapshare updates.

        Just make sure you do not ever accept an update called "Tomtom Application", since that would replace your patched navcore with an unpatched navcore which does not read "downloaded" maps.

          Surly its a simple case of re patching your navcore, im sure people arent still using very old navcores are they?

            No, but I think most of the time when TT HOME offers a NC, it's an older one. Most SE NC's are newer than the official ones .

              Your assuming the poster uses an se navcore, as they dont know wether they can use patched maps with tomtom home id say they probably run a standard version

                Mm, I don't know. Their NC is either an SE or a patched one. If it's the latter case, you're right; there could indeed be a software update. And in that case, they should repatch.

                  Hmm, you are all right.
                  Ok, I think I have a more conctrete answer:

                  - If you run an SE navcore, never update the "Tomtom application" aka Navcore. Use the text file described in the SE Readmenot.txt file to construct a protection against Navcore updates which will last until the latest available navcore for you device is augmented.
                  - If you have patched your navcore in the past but in the mean time a new version is available, you should accept the update and after that repatch the newly received navcore. It could be that you also need to download a newer version of the patch tool.
