TomTom GPS “Lifetime” Maps – Hah!

More bastards!  Several years ago, before Google Maps, I bought a TomTom GPS unit with “lifetime maps”, thinking that I would get free map updates for ever.  Or at the very least, for the life of the TomTom company.  Not so, I found out today.

From the TomTom websitetomtom.com/lifetime (which redirects to TomTom site in the UK)

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.

TomTom has an offer for the dozens of models affected: 20% off two of their newer models, bringing the prices down to $250 – $350.  Double Hah!
