I got a call today that TomTom Support now has a link they can send you to download the "official" 6.550 software if you want to revert back. You will need to call support, tell them you want to downgrade, and from what I've been told they should be able to give you a link to download the older software.
If you could get that link I'd be obliged.
HmmTomtom have just indicated that version 7 maps are suitable for the Eclipse.I wonder... :twisted:
The only workaround I found was to power down the AVN2210p before turning the key off.
I am also starting to wonder if this could be the reason the iPC-107p cable is delayed. Perhaps they experienced a similar issue when disconnecting the iPod. Hopefully, that means they are waiting on a firmware fix before releasing the cable.
I've run my TomTom/AVN2210p without issue since purchase (11/13/2007). Today, I listened to my first USB (Corsair Padlock) MP3 while driving to a bar after work. After I parked, I undocked the PND and put it in my pocket. On my way home, I plugged the PND back into the AVN2210p; nothing strange about it as the TomTom was off (as expected). I plugged the USB key back in and listened to the MP3 all the way home. Since I park in a secure garage at home, I left the TomTom in the AVN2210p, but took the USB key to my computer to make some property changes. When I came back to the garage about 15 minutes later, the TomTom was on and the low battery indicator was flashing. I imagine this indicates that the PND was on for the 5 hours that I was in the bar (or at least long enough to run the battery out). I experimented with ejecting the key and leaving it in before turning the car off. In each case, about 30 seconds after vehicle key removal, the TomTom went through a 'cold' boot and remained. The only workaround I found was to power down the AVN2210p before turning the key off. I just checked the USB key and there is a ttgo.bif file on the key. This probably was created when TomTom Home saw the plugged in key and thought it was a PND...

Thank you for contacting Eclipse; When un-dock the the Tom Tom from the unit did you press the grey button on the top of the unit before you put in your pocket does not turn off goes in a stand-by mode try that. When you undock the Tom Tom it only has a hour of charge to it when it is not in its dock.Tech support
Hello! I have tried depressing the grey button on the TomTom when it is undocked. It does turn off, but then, more than half the time (3 times out of 4), it turns itself back on after 30 seconds. I have also tried to hold the grey button down until it powers completely down. This sporadically works (2 times out of 4). As it stands now, I have to power it down several times, each time waiting 30+ seconds to see if it comes back on. After about 3 rounds of this, it does eventually stay off. Thanks for your response and assistance
