Via 1515TM identifies as a start 25 in devices

I have a new Via 1515TM. When I updated it for the first time, my account identified it as a start 25 in my devices, then updated it. I deleted it from my devises, did a factory reset, plugged it in again, same result - start 25. It seemed to update OK. Is this a problem that needs to be fixed?

    From the first two characters of the serial number, in the US
    "BQ">VIA 1510 / 1515, 8GB + micro-SDHC, MyDrive Connect NAV3

    whereas in Europe
    "BQ">Start 25, 8GB + micro-SDHC, MyDrive Connect NAV3

    Are you sure that in MyDrive Connect that the flag in the top right is the Stars & Stripes (US) rather than the Union Jack (UK)? If the latter click on it and change the country to USA.

    Thank you. However, I cannot find any flag to change. I think you are correct though, When I click on support - it goes to UK.
    Where can I find the flag (s),

    On the latest version of MyDrive Connect Tomtom have replaced the Flag Icon with a Cogwheel Icon
    Tap the Cogwheel Icon to access the Setting Menus

    Actually, I had already done that and it is set to US. I just tried deleting TomTom on my computer, and reinstalled it -making sure it was the US version. I then created a new account (using a different email). I then plugged in the via 1515, told my new account it was via 1515. Then tomtom added it as a start 25 in my devices Nothing worked. Still UK. Might return it.
    Thanks for helping, but something is wrong.

    They are identical devices, as long as you are getting US updates I would not worry what the app calls it

    Sounds like a good plan. Thanks for your help.
