True but still the way things seem to be going. Maybe TT have dropped the wrong products?
Next there'll be satnav worn on the wrist (or is there already one out there?)Please do not just post "thanks" but use the "thanks" button bottom/right or the reputation star "*" bottom/leftS i m p l e s

I have just been on the John Lewis website and they are at least still selling TT wearables if nothing else, probably helping TT to move unsold stock......................not.

You could develop s/w, same or better than TTs, for built-in devices - I've got "narrow roads" on my 910 (tried Truck maps but didn't find them useful 3-4 years ago. Our latest Toyota sent us along single-track "roads" in the Peak District that did not have passing places. Fortunately we were not towing and approaching vehicles were either 4x4 or tractors, both of which either went off road or reversed into the scenery.

And yet ANOTHER bad omen for TT's:-
The Dutch navigation specialist urgently needs new business areas and therefore wants to become a platform for traveling by car.The above is a translation of the start of the article.
Munich What booking.com for hotels and Netflix for TV series, Tomtom would like to be in the future for road trips: The first address on the Internet, when people are planning a trip by car. "We want to make the best offer for drivers," said Mike Schoofs, head of the private customer business of the technology group, the Handelsblatt.
In September, the new service will launch, attracting at least 10 million active users per month. "It's about inspiring people," says Schoofs. The Manager's Plan: Consumers should first plan their vacations and trips by car on the platform. Then they should use the app during the trip.
In addition, users should describe their impressions on the portal as well as publish photos and videos. Through subscriptions, but also through affiliation fees and advertising, Tomtom could earn.
The group from Amsterdam has to open up new sources of revenue. Because the traditional business with navigation devices has been shrinking for years (I'm not surprised). The attempt to grow with sports watches instead failed.
