    Question my new TOMTOM some questions...

    Hello all,


    I have bought an secondhand TOMTOMGO710 for my self because my current one haves issues with the internal storage.
    When you wanna put a new map on it takes about 2/3 hours so i have bought a new one + sold my old one.

    Before i bought the TTGO710 , i have bought the same device for my uncle.
    Because he hads an VD-TEC navigationsystem with custom TOMTOM on it. And when i see this new navigation the TTGO710 i am exicted about it.
    Looks nice, does what it suppose to do, as you now when i recieve his TT device i have bought a new SDHC card for him with 8GB storage on it so he can have the latest maps for about 10 years now.

    So my question is, what is the best software to put on ''my'' TTGO710?

    That sounds like a good setup to me & you can now run any map you want with that 9.510 navcore

    And since you have a lot of memory, you can use the best map of Europe today -925_5412

    thanks for the answers,.

    What are the diffrence between the bootloaders?
    BootLoader_v0.0001.rar
    BootLoader_v5.5022.zip
    BootLoader_v5.5106.zip
    BootLoader_v5.5122.zip
    BootLoader_v5.5128.zip

    I heard that you can not downgrade from v5.5128? to example v5.5022?
    so can i brick my TTGO710 WHEN i use the latest bootloader?

    Don't ask and don't change it! You have exactly what you need which will run perfectly and playing silly buggers with bootloaders can end in tears!

    As we say "if it ain't broke, don't fix it"

    STOP, STOP, STOP!

    Just realised you say you have a BootLoader_v5.5022 BUT you need at least a 5.5120 or higher see

    Bootloader 5.5022 is high enough to read SDHC cards up to 16 or 32 gb. So an 8 gb SDHC card will work properly on a GO710 with bl 5.5022. No reason to change it.

    thank you,
    but i tough like the bluetooth functions or something else will be better or just the same?
    i KNOW THE 5.5022 is to read sdhc cards above 2GB but i tought like the bluetooth function or maybe the satelites are going to be better etc.

    I just don't know why I always recommended a 5.5120 or higher bootloader to read SDHC's (must have been a senior moment a few years years ago) but thanks for clarifying this.

    I don't remember reading anywhere that there's any advantage from one bootloader to another so leave it as it is if you're happy

    you can also give him an honest answer to the question he asked

    ----------------------

    you cannot brick the 710 , because all goes via sd-card
    if you use a wrong bootloader , you need to do some tricks to recover it , but the device is never bricked

    0.0001 is zero bootloader , you can use it to recover to a lower version
    the others are normal bootloaders
    you could change if you want , but as said , there is no (known) reason for it , so you better take the advice and leave it as it is
