Yes, we're back again, after two weeks of touring through Belgium, Luxemburg and Germany. Expect pictures and a more eloborate report on the site soon.
After coming back, the long anticipated patch for Tomtom 5 had appeared on the website (see blog-entry entitled Tomtom 2). After having cleared out most holiday packing, I installed TT 5 once again and installed patch 5.10 over it. Well, not entirely unsurprisingly (given Tomtom's support lack of any real analysing of my particular problem), the problems persisted. So, another support request to Tomtom two days ago, which up until now remains unanswered. How different is the experience with Linksys support, which I have now contacted a few times about problems with my wireless network hardware. My patience with Tomtom is rapidly running out. If you're considering it, do be aware that support is close to non-existant, at least for the time being.
