TOMTOM 6200

HI, I HAVE A 6200 WHICH I HAVE NEVER UPDATED,BUT NOW WOULD LIKE TO. WEBSITE SAYS MY MODEL IS TOO OLD FOR UPDATES. IS THERE ANY WAY AROUND THIS OR DO WE HAVE TO THROW AWAY TOMTOMS THAT ARE A FEW YEARS OLD BUT STILL WORKING FINE EXCEPT FOR NOT HAVING LATEST MAPS?

    Where did you get the "too old" from as a 6200 is still current, and would have come with lifetime maps, so unless it was "Europe only" then any country/continent is available free of charge

    HI NIALL,THANKS FOR REPLYING. ALL IVE DONE SO FAR IS TO TRY AND UPDATE THE MAPS, I WAS BEING ASKED TO ENTER THE FIRST 2 DIGITS OF SERIAL NO TO FIND MY MODEL AND IT CAME BACK WITH,TOMTOM HAS STOPPED UPDATING MY MODEL AS LATEST MAPS ARE TOO BIG A FILE SIZE OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT.

    "ZA"> GO 6200 Wi-Fi, 16GB + micro-SDHC, Wi-Fi NAV5 Wi-Fi

    For a full map of Europe that is now 7.5 GB, you will need to buy a 16 GB class 10 SDHC memory card, to install that see my guide https://en.discussions.tomtom.com/go-800-1000-2000-series-via-series-start-20-and-60-series-mydrive-19/formatting-a-micro-sdhc-card-990256

    In Europe
    "BL">Start 25, 4GB + micro-SDHC, MyDrive Connect NAV3
    but in USA
    "BL">VIA 1500 / 1505, 4GB + micro-SDHC, MyDrive Connect NAV3

    So I doubt if your device came with 'lifetime' maps :( , so no the will not be a refund
