Go 620 WiFi
Just bought a TomTom 620 with WiFi, second hand and bought and installed a USA map on it.
All seems well but I'm concerned that the page that checks compatibility when you enter the first two characters of your serial number (ZE in my case), says the Map is not compatible. Will the Map work when I'm in the states?

Out of curiosity, I've loaded the map and scrolled over to the USA and it seems fine in that regard.
I don't want to take it to the States only to find somethings wrong and it won't navigate or similar!

Thanks in advance.

If you have a USA map loaded and operational as you describe, there's no reason it won't work once you're here. No reason to fret.
IMHO, using a cell phone as a WiFi hot spot is the most solid choice for getting traffic and cloud data to that device. If you've got an iPhone, the Bluetooth may be an issue if you're running any recent version of iOS. If you have an Android phone, you'll need the phone app to provide that data.

There may be an issue on their web site regarding prefix 'ZE'. Unfortunately, TT re-used that prefix, and used it across several similar recent models, so their system may be confusing things.
My notes show that 'ZE' was originally used for the ONE 30 model, then for the GO Supreme EU model, and for the GO 620 and GO Essential in North America, and even for a GO 620 Truck version.
