Issue updating Tom Tom Home caught in loop

BigAl62BigAl62 Posts: 5 [Neophyte Traveler]
I have a Tom Tom XL340-M (I know it's old, but it works great). When I hook it up to my computer and Tom Tom Home launches I get a message saying I need to update Home to version and that I am using version The problem is that I HAVE version installed and when I cancel the message, it closes Home and launches the Install Wizard for the update and even though I let it run it's course, I get the same message when I open home. I have tried both "Modify" and "Repair" options.

This is frustrating as all get out!!! All I want to do is update the maps on mt unit as I'm going on a trip soon. Any help would be appreciated.

    Bad news. The 340 is considered End of Life by Tomtom. Thus, no further map updates are possible.

    It says "Lifetime Maps", silly me thought that meant LIFETIME, not Tom Tom's idea of "lifetime". Oh well, I hope it's up to date enough to keep me from falling off the edge of the Earth. Thanks for the answer.

    That's different! Tomtom has said they will honour lifetime map subscriptions on EOL devices.

    Call support but do NOT respond with a model when prompted in order for a live agent to come on line. Discuss the problem you are having with him/her. And emphasize that yours is a lifetime map model:
