I'm new here so please bear with me if I'm covering ground already dealt with otherwise.
I gather from discussions with Renault Aust that the development of the Australian version of RLink and/or an RLink store is on hold and there is uncertainty as to when it will be completed.
In the absence of an Australian RLink store and as Tom Tom map updates can only be sourced for RLink based inbuilt navigation systems through RLink, it seems that map update availability for Australian based Renault RLink customers is redirected to what appears to be a European based RLink store where map update prices (version not mentioned) are quoted in Euros at more than twice the price that the same updates could be sourced locally and directly from Tom Tom, if this option was available.
It may well be that this might just be an unfortunate interim oversight on the part of Renault Australia pending the availability of an Australian based RLink Store where Tom Tom map updates might be sourced through RLink software at prices similar to that otherwise available directly from Tom Tom Home. If otherwise, it might be seen that Renault, in precluding the sourcing of map updates directly from Tom Tom Home and charging an exorbitant price is not being fair to Australian Renault customers with inbuilt systems using Tom Tom navigation.
Until the future of an Australian version of RLink and/or an RLink store is clarified and whilst the availability of Tom Tom map updates remains solely sourced via a European based RLink store I appear destined to have to cope with outdated Tom Tom version 905 of March 2013 as there is no way that I am prepared to pay circa A$205 for each map update under the present circumstances.
