Hi everyone,

I have the same issue with my VIA 1535 device. The serial # is BO. In my TomTom MyDrive Connect account, it says the Single Map (Australia) has 'expired", but it was bought with the lifetime updates.

Can the Mods please help me?

Thanks all!

Steve

    You are a legend, thank you.

    Although a little old now, this device has been a life saver for years and continues to work flawlessly.

    I look forward to being part of the TomTom Community now!

    Thanks again, Steve

    Hi Francis
    I don't see any issues with the subscription for your TomTom.
    Could you do a soft reset and check for updates in MyDrive Connect?

    Thanks, a soft reset was able to correct the error. I thought I had already reset it but apparently not.

    I have a VIA 1535TM with Lifetime Maps (BMxxxxxxxxxx01). My software advises that updates are no longer available. How can this be with a lifetime guarantee? Is there another venue for updates. My current update is 5 years old making the devise almost useless.
