What is the difference between TomTom LIVE Services and TomTom Services?

TomTom LIVE services is a bundle of services with a real-time connection. Information and updates are sent straight to your device over the air or every time you connect to TomTom HOME desktop software. With LIVE Services you pay a fixed amount per year, so you don’t have to worry about any additional phone costs. You will save time and money making use of this great combination of services.

To use TomTom LIVE Services, you need to have a LIVE connected device. If you do not have a LIVE connected device, you can subscribe to a lot of useful and fun services via TomTom HOME. This is desktop software you can install on your computer with which you can download these services directly and separately (not in a bundle) to your TomTom device.

However, to be able to use the services that require instant updates (such as Traffic or Buddies), you will need a wireless connection set up via your mobile phone (for example via GPRS).
