PLease can anyone help me unlock my device that has this padlock saying product requires activation code.It was originally purchased in USA and I bought it on Ebay in the UK.It was working ok until a Tom tom representative told me to reset it due to it being linked to a different email address.So I did and so removing the original profile and details .Turned it off and back on again and that message with the padlock came on.It is now locked without the code.Tried getmycode but says I bought it from an unauthorised retailer so could not give me the activation code.Don't even know the product code cos I am not the original buyer and cannot get hold of him.Is there any way of bypassing this activation code?
