where do I find the activation code. I have looked on the box and have found the produt number with a number underneath, but I get an error message when I try to enter this number
Solved! Go to Solution.

There is no need for activation code for you Via Live 120. That is something just used to activate older maps or service cards.
Are you using TomTom Home to update your Via? Be aware that the Via needs to be connected to MyTomTom and not TomTom Home. You can find more informaton in this page:

If you work there, could you explain why I cannot download an English speaking voice when I bought in Germany today? The salesman said there would be free voices in English. But if you buy in the UK it's English. What the heck gives?

same problem here, bought in Germany, three German voices only.
(switched sound off)
Via (Live) seems to be based on a quite different technique than systems using HOME.
It's labled TomTom but it's not the same as before (e.g. XL), seems we'll have to wait until MyTomTom service ia capable of providing the usual community things...
On the other hand, that mess I have experienced during the last 4 weeks with POIs, HOME and XL created a mixed impression. Thus I'm looking forward to see a better sorted POI, voice, color-scheme service on Via Live.

Finally got it work - MyTomTom does not work on a Mac with WLAN internet, with a cable it does;
however, I decided to use Windows7 with WLAN, installed MyTomTom for Win, all is working fine.
When the device connects, a small green colored popup actually is the MyTomTom app,
providing a few options plus: Add community content as explained on that page of the given link.
I was able to add files from my Start XL folder: voices, POIs, color schemes, warning sounds.
This way I now do have the same POIs (+ the otther stuff) on my Via 125 as before with the XL.
Further I have downloaded and installed a few voices from the internet (.chk and .vif files).
It's not as convenient yet as it was with XL/HOME since each file must be installed separately,
but still acceptable. The behavior among the Via and MyTomTom on Windows7 was correct
during the time of this procedure, no problems, no strange things to note, that's very good.

I recently purchased a tom tom via 120 and finally connected it to the PC, however the traffic reports and all usual subscription features (that i am informed are free for the first year) dont work and i keep being prompted that i need a subscription for this tom tom service. Before I ring them can anyone help?
