    I have a TomTom XL (IQ routes ed.) and I'd like to update it (maps,
    software, autovelox).

    How to?

    Thanks in advance,

    It should be version 9.026. Is there newer versions or maps (Europe)?

    Do you have the cable to connect it to a PC?

    You need to connect to the Tomtom website.

    Ok, I've just downloaded the TomTom Home for Windows and updated my
    device (from SW ver 9.026 to 9.061, GPS fix, and others patches).

    But: are my maps the last ones? (in TomTom Home I could buy something
    like "western europe ...", but I don't know if I really need it, or my
    maps are already updated)

    And what about speed cameras europe: how can I discover if they are
    updated and - in case - how to?

    TIA

    At that site there will be options to download various maps.

    I would say that if you need to ask, you probably DON'T have the latest maps
    OR speed camera locations installed.

    You can buy a subscription through that site to get updates.

    If you've paid for the services you will get the speed camera updates. As
    for maps, if you are inside the latest map period you should be able to get
    a free update, if not you'll have to pay (or download from a third party
    source).

    It will tell you either way when you run TomTom home because if anything is
    not up to date (sic) then they will try to flog you a newer version (notice
    I didn't state improved)

    Any idea what the price is of map updates for the Start 20 UK and
    Ireland? I could browse the TomTom website, but it is such a plethora
    of pages you may have the answer off the top of your head.

    I've used my one free update.
