If you buy a navigation device or smartphone app which includes Lifetime Maps, you can download 4 or more full updates of your map every year for the lifetime* of your product.

Lifetime Maps are available without additional charge and for as long as the product is supported.

The map updates are the full updates for the map that is pre-installed on your device or that is installed on your smartphone app. The geographical coverage and feature support in the map will continue to match the original version, as long as the original is commercially available.

You will receive all available updates to road network, addresses and Points of Interest in these releases.

We continuously add more detail to our maps, which means that they increase in size. Due to this size increase, devices with limited memory may not have enough space to install a whole map. You can switch between the available map zones at any time using MyDrive Connect or TomTom HOME. If your device supports 3D maps, you may need a memory card to install the full 3D version of your map. You can also choose to install the full map with partial 3D coverage on the internal memory of your device.

*Lifetime – this is the useful life of the device, which means the period of time that TomTom continues to support your device with software updates, services, content or accessories. A device will have reached the end of its life when none of these are available any more. The useful life of the smartphone app means the period of time that TomTom continues to support the app with updates.
