VIA 1525TM that identifies as a START 52

I have a VIA 1525TM that identifies as a START 52 when connected to MyDrive (Perhaps it needs counselling LOL). As a result maps/traffic are expired. Can anyone help?
Thanks.

    Thanks for clearing up the question regarding my device's name. However, it's supposed to have lifetime maps and traffic, which it no longer has. Can this be fixed?

    I have similar issue as well, bought VIA 1525TM in June2019, only recently install MyDrive Connect as recognized as Start 52. Can you help?
  • PT1972PT1972 Posts: 7 [Master Explorer]
    Yes I can explain this. It is the same device but has two different names depending on which market the device is sold in. One of the moderators explained that to me. Also, if you look at the two user manuals, they are exactly the same, including the length.
    Hope that helps. Have a great day travelling!

    EddieYap, please see the post above by YazFamMan on February 7 for more information on my previous post. In short, the UK and Europe have one name and the US and Canada have another.
    Happy motoring!
