cann you let us know how you get on with the v7 maps? Was planning on getting them but wasnt 100% sure they would work.
It all appears to be fine. I'm in an area which has had 2000 houses built in the last few years, and it doesn't have my road unfortunately, but c'est la vie.
I made the mistake of deleting the old TT6 install from the device, and the UK map directory, and for some reason that really upset TT Home 2.X. It kept wanting to check the directories, even though they didn't relate to TT7. Perhaps the dregs of the old install? So I'd recommend leaving it alone if you can afford the space. Perhaps once installed they can be deleted/uninstalled?
If you already have a TomTom account, and you buy the maps under that, you need to make sure you change the device code to the new device, which is somewhere within the account settings. Otherwise TomTom Home will say there is no map to download, even though it is sitting in your account - clearly it validates the device code in your account with that being installed to.
Those are probably the only two mistakes/tips for when things went awry.
I think £50 is very steep, when I bought TT6 for £80. A map upgrade should really only be something like 10-20% of the cost, or at least done on a subscription basis where you get all updates for a year. TomTom need to think ahead on this, as they will upset customers and push them elsewhere.
