What are Lifetime Services?

A number of TomTom devices and smartphone apps come with Lifetime Services.

What does “lifetime” mean?

Lifetime 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. 

Lifetime Services can only be used on the device they have been purchased with and cannot be transferred to another TomTom device or smartphone app.

There are two ways to install extra maps:

  1. Install maps on your device’s internal memory
    Depending on the size of the map you choose to install, you may have to replace your current installed map due to memory limitations. You can always reinstall maps you have removed.
  2. Install maps on a microSD card (available for purchase separately) inserted in your device
    Using a microSD card for your maps means that the available memory is only limited by the memory size of the microSD card you use in your device.

You can download 4 or more full updates of any installed map every year, for the lifetime of your product. You need a computer with an Internet connection to download new maps and map updates.

Map updates are available for any map installed on your device or microSD card. Updates include changes to the road network, addresses and Points of Interest. If you decide to download and install a different map you will always receive the latest map version we have available.

The geographical coverage and feature support in the map will continue to match the original version, as long as the original is commercially available.
