    I bought this TT in 2012 or so with Europe maps. Research suggests I may be able to get 2017 map updates with the activation code if it was a 540. Will TT retrieve that code for me, or have they stopped honoring the 'Lifetime' maps promise made at that time?

    If the answer is 'No, you must now pay for the updated Europe maps', how do I ensure I have enough space on my unit to accommodate even a Western Europe map present day?

    Thanks.

    I'm not aware of any Lifetime maps available for that model. What research exactly are you referring to? Think it is best if you seek Support's advice about any maps that you might be able to get now for that device:

    United States
    877-757-7137
    Monday - Friday: 9:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. EST
    Saturday: 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m EST

    Also, see this:

    If my memory is correct, in 2012 TomTom was offering Lifetime maps as a 540 option in the US, but was not doing that in Europe. I would try calling TomTom support - and be sure to have the Serial Number for your unit handy when you call.

    As Einstein said, all things are relative.

    And he explained it thusly:

    If your nose is two inches away from my bum we are relatively the same distance apart but I am relatively better off than you.
