hi all
i have a tomtom XL Live that i no longer subscribe to tomtom for their traffic updates.
is there a way to remove the blue traffic bar that runs down the right hand side of my screen that just now houses a yellow warning triangle, and thus reclaim some extra screen space please?
i've searched through the menu options but have not managed to find this option yet (if indeed it exists)?

many thanks.

I don't have this facility, so may be totally wrong. Embarassed

In the main Menu, can you access TomTom Traffic?

If yes, is there an option to Disable Traffic?

You may need to connect to your phone for this to work. Sad

On mine I have simply renamed two files in the map folder
tmccodes.dat and traffic.dat to tmccodes.dax and traffic.dax, this stops the traffic bar running and showing
