Lifetime Map Update Not Available

edited August 2021 in Map purchase & installation

a few years ago I bought a Via 135M which was marketed with "lifetime map updates".
Now I wanted to update the Europe map because my navigation device told me that the map is out of date.
However, online in my tom tom profile I only have the option of "Europe - Single Map Download" and need to pay if I want to update the map.

Did I do something wrong? My device is registered with the serial number online.

Best regards

    TomTom forum moderators @VikramK or @lampard should pick this up and sort out for you on Monday. Enjoy the weekend in the meantime.

    Hi @jonav

    Welcome to the community!
    I am sorry, I could not find any reference to Lifetime Map Update Services embedded with this device. I would recommend that you contact the customer service with a soft copy of the purchase invoice.
    They should be able to assist you with the activation.

    Regards, Vikram

    I read in the forums that every device sold as Via 135 M has liftime map update.
    Also the serial number of the device starts with "BP". Is this information correct?

    Is it possible to contact the Tom Tom customer service via email?
