Well, it's better than the old version, which was well outdated even last year.

This Version,, works somewhat, however some things don't work at all. Still no computer control of my TomTom ONE LE, just an error that says "this feature is not supported by your device or operating system..." This means that it is not possible for me to password protect the gps. (If they can't figure out how to make the computer-gps control work out, they should make it possible to password protect the gps from within.)

Some of the new Home program works, but more often than not, the updater fails. Also on the main home page, it tells me that my MapShare updates are out of date (which they are), however it won't let me update the MapShare corrections. It directs me to the update page, which after a minute says that everything is up to date. (To date, I've never gotten any mapshare correction updates!)

I'm still happy with the TomTom ONE as a standalone device, but their support for OSX users is inexcusable.

Not a bad widget. BUT - the version number in the CFBundleList is wrong, causing WidgetUpdate to flag the widget as needing an update. I e-mailed the dev several months ago noting this, and I received a stock response along the lines of "thanks for the input, the issue you raised will be fixed in the next version." Three months later and no new version...

The widget itself seems to work fine enough, although developers should really be encouraged to keep their programming tidy enough so that at least the program itself knows what version it is...

WidgetUpdate on the other hand, is an amazing widget that crosschecks version numbers with MacUpdate, and generally works like a charm - except of course when developers don't keep their version numbers up to dat!

Yay! new version,! Boo Hiss - it doesn't work any better. Still no support for operating my Tomtom One LE via Tomtom Home. Now, rather than explaining that it doesn't work, it just gives the spinning beachball of death, requiring a force quit.

Still no mapshare updates either...

And did anyone else notice that the program is so poorly designed that "HELP" appears TWICE in the menu-bar? Top notch developing this is!
