Via 135 FREE lifetime maps????

Hello,

 

Today I buy a Tomtom via 135 (Art#. 1EQ5.002.05) in Mediamarkt Spain. They have told me that this gps have free map updates for life, but in case I do not see reported.

 

On the Web are indicated the free lifetime updates for the model "M". I do not know if my Via 135 is model M.

 

Can tell me whether through the item number (1EQ5.002.05) if my GPS has free map updates for life?

 

Thanks and sorry for my english.

Hi Lobe,

 

Welcome to the forum!

 

You have to setup an account and connect your Via to TomTom. So your device and your account will be aligned. To do so follow the instructions given here:

https://www.tomtom.com/es_es/mytomtom/getstarted/

 

If done properly your LifeTimeMaps will be shown in MyTomTom.

 

Greetings

Andreas

Thanks, 

 

I don't want to open the box until I am not sure that I have free map updates for life.

It is sure that I have those updates for free forever?

LifeTimeMaps are not for ever. They are valid as long as the lifetime of your device is. The LTM will end, when TT stops supporting your device. You can read this on the product page of TT.

 

I cannot tell you if you have the Via135M. It should be shown on your invoice.

 

Greetings

Andreas

How it is assumed that lasts the lifetime of a GPS TomTom?
3 months?, 1 year? 4 years? 10 years?

 

Thanks!

Just registered my Via135.  In the 'Mydrive' I now get: Map Update Service: valid until 2014-11-30

Not lifetime (hopefully) of me, but 15 years is plenty!
