GPS VIA 1435TM Lifetime Traffic and Maps Activation Code

I just bought a VIA 1435TM Lifetime Traffic and Maps GPS. I noticed that out of the box it only camewith one piece of paper, the lifetime maps code. Is there supposed to be a lifetime traffic code? Also, there is no intentifying code on the bottom of my GPS. I bought this refurbished from Amazon and I want to make sure that I am getting the product that I paid for. Thank you!

Re: GPS VIA 1435TM Lifetime Traffic and Maps Activation Code

The lifetime traffic refers to RDS-TMC I believe. For that, you don't need code. I am not sure if yours has a built-in receiver or you need an external one. Best would be to confirm with customer services (and to activate the code for the maps as well):
