    Do a soft reset, you will loose nothing, it is like rebooting your computer and reloads all the new files from an update.

    A soft reset :- with your device charged for at least 2Hrs "OR" have the device plugged into a power supply; press and hold your on/off button until you hear a drum-roll sound (or the TomTom hands symbol appears) then release the on/off button. Make sure you are outside and have a clear view of the sky (satellites)

    of course before writing the question I did a soft reset and not soft reset... and updated everything - and still no response from tech support!!! it's been 6 hours!!! it is the quality of just bought the newest and most top-end model for $500!!!

    it turns out that when you connect to wifi disconnects gprs
    but the problem is still relevant - traffic is expired, Camera updates expired! and the manual says that for life, what's the problem?

    Have you connected to your WiFi router since doing the soft reset. Also did you specifically go to "Settings" "System" "Get Updates" ?

    of course I did and was connected to the phone and updated everything, updated maps (7Gb), even the updates come share maps but why the device with a lifetime subscription requests me to buy this subscription? but if I make a mistake and buy this subscription? it looks like fraud

    As this is a user forum, might be an idea to contact Customer Services on Monday to sort out your subscription(s), see my list of phone number here

    Hi Yurko,

    Welcome to the Community!

    Unfortunately, there seems to have been a problem with activating the Lifetime services for your device and your Traffic subscription has expired a month ago. I flagged this with our technician he made some changes to your TomTom account to get this sorted.

    To activate your services, please factory reset your device by choosing Settings (cog wheel) - System - Reset - Reset. Please note, that this will delete your personal information, e.g. My Places, My Routes and destination prediction data. You can save and restore My Places with MyDrive. After this, connect your device to Wi-Fi® to link it back to your account.

    Cheers, Mikko

    it turns out - when he connects to WIFI - gprs disconnects, then suddenly the subscription through the day she appeared on the lifetime traffic and speed cam only until 12/2017 - what a mess

    Hi Yurko,

    Something went wrong again... Sorry about that!

    We've done some changes again. Please, repeat the previous steps.

    Cheers, Mikko

    Your Data Connection will show... Data Connection 'Wi-fi'

    You can

    You can't actually turnoff the Wi-Fi but you can forget it, the device will still be monitoring for a Wi-Fi service but not connecting

    Tap 4Dot (.... Menu) --> Setting --> Wi-Fi... Tap on your Wi-Fi's Name (Screen top left)
    Tap Modify --> Forget
    Follow on-screen instructions to finish

    Log back into the Wi-fi after setting seeing your GPRS (SIM) Connection
