Why was my XXL540 with "Lifetime Updates" no longer supported with updates

TomTom discontinued updates for my "Lifetime" XXL540 GPS and essential turned it into a all but useless and very expensive paperweight. I am so disappointed as I rarely used this device over very few years since I purchased and it was at the time a very expensive GPS. How does a company with a good reputation get away with screwing the consumer by arbitrarily deciding that the definition of "lifetime" is only a few years after a consumer purchases a product guaranteed to have "Lifetime" updates. Needless to say as much as I liked the XXL540 I will never buy a product from your company. It is so blatantly fraudulent.
