Does the Tom Tom XL350 have free map updates

I was getting ready to buy a Tom Tom xl350 and I am not sure if it has free mapupdates or not, online it had this,

  • Lifetime Traffic & Map Updates*
    Enjoy a lifetime of easy driving with two great features from TomTom. Lifetime Map Updates guarantees you receive four new editions of your TomTom map each year to ensure that you are always navigating with the industry’s most up-to-date map. And, Lifetime Traffic Updates automatically sends real-time updates to your TomTom, so you can steer clear of traffic delays and take the fastest route possible to your destination. *Applies to maps of US, Canada & Mexico only. You receive non-transferable traffic data and up to four non-transferable map data updates per year until the product’s useful life expires or TomTom no longer receives map or traffic updates from its suppliers, whichever is shorter. Details and terms at www.tomtom.com/legal. Lifetime Traffic updates are available in the US and Canada only.
  • But when I checked the Tom Tom website it doesn't seem to say the same thing, so what is it, lol, free or not free?

    Hi erh320,

     

    Occasionally the website may be set not on the US version (and instead UK). As this is a USA offer only it may have not appeared.

     

    Indeed the device does offer this feature as it is listed also here: http://www.tomtom.com/en_us/products/car-navigation/xl-350-series/#tab:benefits

    I just bought a TOM TOM XL 350 because of the lifetime maps edition.   I am not finding this on the tomtom website.

    I was relieved when I heard the staff member,- Najib stated ...

    Now the site this links to no longer exist and I am very concerned?.  Will I receive the Lifetime Map Updates that are advertised on the box, or do I return the Tom Tom and move to another GPS company?  I will wait to hear.  Thank you.  TRowe
