I want to buy new TomTom Go 40 with lifetime map update feature (today, 12.June.2020).
I am aware that it is old product and TomTom has stopped giving updates for some of the model.
My question before i buy this device is:

Is GO 40 able to receive map update for FREE TODAY as well? (or Is ToomTom still gives map updates for Go 40? )

    Hi @Buntyy

    The GO 40 is not an obsolete model and if bought with lifetime maps should still be offered them on approximately a quarterly basis.

    The first thing you must do is purchase a Micro SD Class 10 memory card size 16gb or max 32gb and format it on the unit before trying to update the European map. The current full Europe map is over 9gb and so will not fit on the units 8gb of internal memory along with the operating software. I recommend you get a Sandisk, Samsung or similar major make as some of the lesser known ones have been known to not work on the TT units and also get it from a reliable source to avoid fakes.
