TomTom has seen the inexorable rise of smartphone navigation and decided that it needs a cheaper way of updating its head units. Its cunning solution has been to open its MapShare community to all 60 million TomToms in the wild — which was previously limited just to smartphone apps and select devices. MapShare works by allowing users to update their, erm, maps, when they spot a change has been made, which is then uploaded when they get home. It’ll now be aggregated and pushed out as a free daily download. Users can filter updates, deciding if they want ones submitted by “some,” “many” or those officially verified by the company itself — so don’t bother trying to game the system to make your morning commute easier.
