this is a useless site does not have uk on it, considering the hidden costs of this it might just be cheaper to go and buy a new unit

michelleclive :

it has a world map

michelleclive :

can you tell me the serial number of the tomtom

michelleclive :

let me search it for you.

Customer:

put that in, map choices are for anywhere but the uk this is most probably a yank based ite also redflecting charges that are more than a new device

Customer:

I typed in the serial no from the device, it states that it is uk but options were for Australia any part of europeand Africa, think I am wsting my time, be cheaper to buy a new model and dump the old one, no reflection on your service but most of these sites are just trying to make a fast buck.

michelleclive :

can you give me the serial number of the tomtom

michelleclive :

you know what i would suggest

Customer:

it is rb65900413004

michelleclive :

This serial number is ***** accepted by the find device search box

michelleclive :

its only allowing rb

michelleclive :

you know what

michelleclive :

instead of spending money on support and getting maps purchased i would suggest you to go for the latest model which is

michelleclive :

https://www.tomtom.com/en_gb/drive/car/products/index.html

michelleclive :

GO 6000 with latest technology and free maps download.

Customer:

My thoughts as well, thank you for trying to help, I bought this already used so I might as well get the newest version, it will be the better option.

michelleclive :

i want to be real honest with my answer the 2010 technology if far behind than the current one we have if we want to continue with old hardware with new updates then obviously they will charge so i gave you both the options

michelleclive :

Its your choice to select

michelleclive :

let me know if there is anything else i may assist you with.

Customer:

I am going to buy a new unit, thanks for your time.
