it clearly states lifetime map updates i thought the code was already intergrated with the unit.and once you went on line that was it .sad part i already left + feedback i send him an email about but no reply yet.
The problem is that if the seller had registered the activation code for the lifetime maps, that subscription may not be transferable if the ite is sold.

Anyway, did you call CS? They are open Saturdays.
yes i call them she said i needed an activation code so no can do. but the seller email me back.and said the way it works is
after the 90 days is up to re-sync the unit and i will get another 90 lets wait and see if it is true.
Think the seller is feeding you crap.
I have the same opinion. IMO, the seller is attempting to stall you off to negate any claim to e-bay, using the approach,"If there really is a problem, why did the buyer wait so long to complain?"

I have never heard anything about a "resync" after 90 days. I have also never even heard of a TomTom "resync" process.

Of course, I could be wrong, but what I would do if in doubt would be to call TomTom Customer Support and ask them about this supposed "resync" process.

...after the 90 days is up to re-sync the unit and i will get another 90 lets wait and see if it is true.
Yeah, right after the seller is out from under it. We've been around the TomTom game for years here, and none of us have ever heard of such a thing.

In your shoes, I'd tell the seller where the resync button really is, but he'd have to bend over to find it. Honestly, get that one back to where it came from and give it another try with a new seller. If you're going to buy a 'refurbished' unit in the future, be SURE it's been through TomTom's facility in Concord. You can find these at times at Amazon, Best Buy and other sites.

The whole business of the map subscription is FAR too important as part of the price of the unit to goof around with it this way.
