    Default TomTom Go 720 not detecting TMC Pro receiver

    Hello,

    I have got a Go 720 with Version 9.510. I have to plug in the TMC Pro receiver several times before it is detected.
    Is this a knows bug? What can I do?

    If I would switch to a Go with "Live" would it be safe to patch the system and use maps from here?

    I use a GO950 with a DSA patched navcore 9.465 with Live Service working.
    It runs very smooth on a free map of Europe and Benelux.

    So I don't think you gonna have problems running free maps on a GO Live.
    But make sure that your new devices isn't a new generation device with a navcore 10 or higher.
    You can't use free maps on such a device. Buying one at the TomTom store is your only option than.

    As long as there is Live coverage it will work on patched navcore & maps.
    PS The unit must be compatible as well. My 550 live for example is not compatible with live services in Poland even with legit PL map as long as I leave Poland everything works perfect :mad:

    As long as the tmc pro would work, i am quite satisfied with my Go720.

    I know, that navcore10 is not cracked, yet.
    Is it safe to use live services? Coudn't TomTom detect patched devices and block them? Do I need to sign up with my personal data in order to get live services to work? Or can the live services subscription also be hacked?

    Totally safe to run an x40/x50 Live device with cracked maps/navcore etc BUT Live services do have to be paid for (although you can use a dummy email/password and purchase via TTHome if you prefer)
    Please do not just post "thanks" but use the "thanks" button bottom/right or the reputation star "*" bottom/left

    to be on the safer side of safe , i have removed the original ( expired ) TT simcard from my device
    you never know
    they have direct access to the device with a LIVE account

    no , LIVE can not be hacked
    but why ?
    if you need it , the new devices have it by default and come with lifetime map-update ( which requires LIVE )

    if you can live without Traffic ( i assume thats the reason you want LIVE ) than you are better off with a older NAV2 device

    BTW
    i did not knew they have TMC in China , or TT Traffic

    to comfort you ;
    Tomtom TMC never worked properly
    i think they dont bother because they want us to buy Traffic

    Well, if it is detected properly, I was quite satisfied with TMCpro. It saved my *** several times.
