Rider v5 (2013) and earlier - Now Obsolete, no longer supported and NO MORE MAP UPDATES

4Time4Time Posts: 32 [Renowned Wayfarer]
Very disappointed when I logged into TomTom Home this morning and then the website to be advised that the rider v2013 is now deemed obsolete by TomTom and under the lifetime* map guarantee my understanding is that I will no longer get map updates :/ To rub salt into the wound TomTom were previously offering me and I presume others with similar units an upgrade to a current model with 30% off. Now that they have cut off the updates they drop the discount to 25% - that certainly does not promote brand loyalty

    Hi @4Time

    If your unit was sold with lifetime Map updates then maybe @VikramK can confirm whether that is going to still be honoured for your unit like the similarly sold obsolete car devices are. You will not be able to purchase maps or any subscriptions or get OP updates.

    Hi @DougLap
    Thanks for your comment, yes the unit was sold with lifetime map updates, I will keep my fingers crossed whilst I wait for @VikramK comment - but not holding my breath

    Hello all

    Map updates are active.
    There is no definite answer as to when the updates could stop. More information available here

    We are still designing map cuts for certain EOL models, so we have continued rolling out new map updates.

    Thank you,

    Hi Vikam,
    Thank you for the update, I had downloaded the v.10.70 maps prior to receiving the warnings and so wasn't sure of the current status.

    Here's hoping that my device is on the list of EOL models that TomTom will be able continue rolling out map updates to.
