How can I download purchased TomTom maps without owning a compatible device?

I understand the map is in a proprietary format, but I want to download the file I bought. I do not own a TomTom and I don't plan on getting one.

    Only Tomtom Home allows downloading a map file to the computer
    I don't think it's possible to play the file without GPS.

    TomTom Maps are linked to a serial number so that they can be activated. Even if it were possible to copy the data, it must be associated with a serial number from a device compatible with these maps.

    The early NAV2 devices used Tomtom Home and the Microsoft FAT32 filer system... There were cracked Tomtom Maps available on the internet...
    Along with the induction of the NAV3 Range, right through to the latest GO Discover & Expert etc... Tomtom have used the MyDrive Secure Network Update system...
    The MyDrive Secure Network Update system does NOT allow users access to the OS filer system or Maps....
