Terms and conditions
Vodafone Navigation - terms and conditions
Vodafone Navigation comprises services provided to you by, respectively, Vodafone Limited and Telmap Limited ("Telmap"). Vodafone Limited is providing services which enable you to access the Telmap service via the Vodafone network.
By accessing the Vodafone Navigation software ("Software") you agree that in addition to being bound by the terms and conditions contained in your customer contract with Vodafone you will be bound by the terms set out below and by the terms and conditions set out in the User Rights Agreement found at www.telmap.com/legal (the "Terms").
You can request a paper copy of these Terms by calling Vodafone customer service on 191 from your mobile.
Use of Vodafone Navigation
Access to Vodafone Navigation depends on handset capability and network availability. You will need to be connected to a price plan that supports GPRS or 3G before you can use Vodafone Navigation. You must be a Vodafone customer registered in the UK.
Data charges apply when using Vodafone Navigation
Vodafone Navigation downloads your route by sending small amounts of data over the network. You’ll pay data charges to download these maps & information in addition to the monthly subscription fee.
The data used by Vodafone Navigation will vary with the complexity of the maps and route downloaded and the following examples are guidelines only;
3 mile journey – 60kB
30 mile journey – 150kB
100 mile journey – 300KB
200 mile journey – 400kB
Some handsets offer a data counter where you can monitor data usage. For more information see your handset user guide.
Vodafone Navigation also automatically updates traffic information along your route every 10 minutes. Switching off traffic updates in the Settings screen will reduce the data consumption.
Data will be charged at the same rates as Mobile Internet access i.e. you'll pay our standard out of bundle rates for this data unless you have an inclusive data allowance as part of your price plan from which the data can be deducted. For further information about data charging see www.vodafone.co.uk/mobileinternet
In order for the Vodafone Navigation service to work, you must use the WAP setting. When you open the application for the first time, you will be asked to choose the relevant setting.
Your monthly subscription
There is no minimum subscription period for the Vodafone Navigation service.
Subject to any offer that you may take up when you first subscribe you will be charged for the Vodafone Navigation service from the first date we enable you to receive it ("Subscription Payments"). The cost is £4.89/month with 1st month free. You must pay us the Subscription Payments every month in advance. We will collect the amount due automatically from your account each month until you tell us you wish to cancel your subscription.
We may increase your Subscription Payment at any time by giving you at least one calendar month’s notice. We may also increase your Subscription Payment without notice if required by law or if any regulatory authority requests or requires a change to any aspect of our pricing which affects your Subscription Payment directly or our pricing structure directly.
We will collect your Subscription Payment by adding it to your account if you are a Pay Monthly customer or deducting it from your balance if you are a Pay as you Talk customer.
If you have missed any payments you owe to us, we can suspend provision of Vodafone Navigation to you without giving you notice. If you are a Pay as you Talk customer we’ll start trying to take payment for your subscription the day before the fee is due, to ensure payment goes through in time. We’ll also try on the day the subscription is due and the day after.
If you don’t have enough credit to pay your Subscription Payment your subscription will lapse and you will no longer be able to access Vodafone Navigation.
How to cancel
You can cancel your subscription at anytime by calling 191, through the My Account pages on your handset or by visiting a Vodafone store. Once you notify us that you wish to cancel, you will no longer be charged and your subscription will lapse on the next renewal date.
If you’re a prepay customer you can choose to cancel your subscription at the end of your current subscription period or immediately (provided it is more than 2 days before your subscription anniversary date).
Because subscription payments are taken in advance, charges for the following billing period may show on your bill after you have notified us that you wish to cancel your subscription. These charges will be corrected on your next bill.
We may cancel your subscription to Vodafone Navigation at any time by giving you one calendar month’s notice. We may change these Terms from time to time, provided such changes are reasonable and where possible, we will provide advance notice of major changes to Vodafone Navigation and any changes to the Terms and Conditions on vodafone.co.uk
We may suspend the operation of Vodafone Navigation:
- for repair or maintenance work; or
- in order to update or upgrade the contents or functionality of Vodafone Navigation from time to time;
- in the event that we believe that you are or may be in breach of these Terms
Roaming charges apply for data usage when accessing Vodafone Navigation from abroad and this will be charged in accordance with your price plan. Additional information can be found in the Going Abroad section of the Vodafone web site.
