Lifetime updates for my iOS TomTom app

I purchased a TomTom gps app via the App Store, before TomTom Go, which included unlimited updates. This is why I purchased it at that time. Then TomTom Go appeared and the iPhone app I had purchased stopped getting updates. Now TomTom wants me to pay to use TomTom Go. I think this is unfair since I purchased the original product due to the lifetime updates. Are there others who have experienced this unfair treatment?

    The old navigation app is end of life and no longer available for download.
    With the release of the 3rd generation Tomtom GO Navigation app
    For more than three years Tomtom has accompanied the migration to the 2nd generation application apparently you have not taken advantage of this advantage.

    I know it isn’t available for download - I did take advantage of TomTom Go when it came out, my point is when I purchased it it states “lifetime downloads” and now I have to pay for TomTom Go.

    Hi @kennyfox, It seems to be an issue with the subscription on your TomTom account. I would advise you to reach out to our support and see if they can rectify this for you.

    Best, lampard

    How do I contact support - a live person - to talk to regarding my case? Every time I click on “contact support” I cannot get to a link or a local telephone number to get in touch with a person. Can you help? Thanks.
