Lifetime Maps update misleading

Free Lifetime Maps updates only as long as Tom Tom supports it....
My device is still 100% but Tom Tom doesn't support it anymore.Do they force me to buy a new unit every odd year?

Should have stayed with Garmin

    Hi @Dosie

    I had a look at your device information and I don't see lifetime maps active on it since the date it was linked to your account.

    Further, the customer service has asked to provide a valid photo or a receipt which will mention the device came with lifetime maps.

    I agree, offering 25% was not the best option but I also don't find that you have sent the requested documents.
