The activation code you entered is valid but ...

New TomTom XXl 550 user. TomTom Home has been installed and app upgrades to latest versions completed.  I enter the activation code for Fuel Price Service and receive the following message:

 

The activation code you entered is valid but the associated product doesn’t work with your device type or with the version of the application you have installed on it. Please install the latest version of the device application by clicking ‘Update my device’ in the main menu. Then enter your activation code again.

 

Solutions anyone???

Re: The activation code you entered is valid but ...

Have you indeed updated the application? when you connect to Home. Update my Unit? Is there an application offered?

 

You may want to call CS at 866-486-6866. They're open Saturdays in NA.

Only app offered for update the phone link app - which I do not need. Like I said, the unit has been fully updated. And I did call CS - placed on hold and then a fast busy after 10 min. So that route is not working either.

You'll have to give Customer Support a call on Monday to get the service added to your account.

 

To expedite the process have a scan of your Proof of Purchase and the promotion card. The agents should walk you through uploading those to our system and getting that service added afterwards.

 

This service does work on the XXL 550 as I've justed updated the fuel prices on one I have.

 

866 486 6866

Monday - Friday: 7:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. EST
Saturday: 9:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. EST

AndrewV, I have exactly the same problem. I have scanned my receipt and fuel price service certificate and will call the telephone number you gave. Thank you for the advice.

I haven't been given a reason why, but the promotion code when used with this device seems to give that message.

 

But I have an XXL 550 with Fuel Prices on it and it works fine. Its just a matter of getting the service into the account. Which Customer Support should be able to do for you with the receipt and copy of the code card.

Re: The activation code you entered is valid but ...

Hi I am having the same problem. It says right on the box of the xxl550TM that I bought today that it includes  1 free year of the service but when I type in the activation code it tells me that it doesnt work on this model. What a headache. It says it does right on the front of the box.  Very disatisfied with my first Tom Tom device :smileysad:
