But my tomtom has 'live traffic' and connects to the tomtom servers regularly using a built-in sim...does that count as 'communication'? Who knows?
except that it could be argued that it is not for the purpose of providing you with access to the internet - so, probably okay... however this is where legislation is not in touch with the rapid change in technology and this update was a missed opportunity to clarify... As much as legislation like this helps the police make prosecutions but specifying actions which are illegal - by its nature, it makes it harder to prosecute others as the legislation doesn't exclude those actions... sometimes more generic law is better...
