To prevent TT Home from downloading & installing Navcore 9.400
Open the ttgo.bif file with Notepad.
Replace lines 9 & 10 with these:
Save this change by clicking "File" in the upper left corner of windows explorer, then "Save as" ttgo.bak. At this point, there is only a ttgo.bak file in the root, no ttgo.bif.
Disconnect & reboot. Now you will have a ttgo.bak, a ttgo.bif & a ttgo.ori file in the root & no TT Home upgrade to Navcore 9.400.
Thanks for the heads-up. Are you aware of any reason why we should prevent the upgrade from taking place if we aren't affected by this:
The TomTom HD Traffic receiver is also no longer supported. The receiver was only available in the Netherlands. When downloading this software, the TomTom HD Traffic receiver will no longer be compatible with the device. If you want to continue using the HD Traffic receiver, you must not download this software.
That is, did you include the no-install instructions for a particular reason, or just for completeness?

When there is a Navcore update for your unit, TT Home lists it in "Update My Device" as an uncheckable mandatory download. A lot of users prefer to update when they want to, not when TT wants them to. Creating a .bak file makes the upgrade an option.

Good trick to know, thanks!
FYI, I got another device software update for my GO 720 this morning: version 9.401.
My understanding is that this update was only to fix a problem that occurred on Great Britain with some models that have LIVE services. The 9.40 update caused loss of LIVE connectivity on units with a specific SIM card installed.
Even though it was a problem only for some devices, and only in Great Britain, the 9.401 update that fixed the issue was rolled out worldwide to maintain a common code base everywhere.
With best wishes,
