TomTom Home, the desktop/driver software for the TomTom GPS devices, reached version 2.6.1.238 late Tuesday. The new version, a 42.4 megabyte download (courtesy of VersionTracker), offers the following bug fixes and new features:

  • Link to our new online Route Planner.
  • Fresh new menu icons.
  • HOME now shows in the bottom right corner which TomTom device you have and offers a button to disconnect it.
  • It is now easier to get the latest maps by clicking the new Add Maps button.
  • After buying a new map you can now choose Install later.
  • Greek added as a new language.
  • Deselected update items are moved to the bottom of the list and remain deselected until you select them again.
  • TomTom HOME now stores all username and password combinations (if auto-login is chosen). You can automatically log in with any previously used device.
  • You need to fill in fewer fields when creating an account.
  • Improved device linking to better explain the process.
  • Fewer steps when using your activation or promotion code.
  • Bug fix: TomTom HOME now allows you to log in with e-mail domains of only one character long: e.g. username@c.dk.
  • It is now easier to install TomTom HOME themes and extensions that are already on your computer.
  • The new version requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later to install and run and is available as a free update.
    If you’ve tried the new version of TomTom Home or have a GPS program of choice, let us know in the comments or forums.
