    As long as the serial number of your device does not start with "AQ" or "AV" which have been declared 'EoL' (see here)
    To make it easier on yourself purchase an 8GB SDHC class 10 memory card then purchase a map of the US from here https://www.tomtom.com/en_gb/sat-nav/maps-services/shop/travel-map/usa/

    Sorry to hear that :(,

    Remember that a device bought in Europe will not have access to US traffic.

    If you live in a rural part of the UK, do not buy a START 42/52/62 as their postcode search is disastrous :( As they rely of a road name to be attached to a postcode!
