TomTom Map Update Service
Previously not available in North America, The TomTom Map Update service now appears to be making its way to this side of the pond. The service is a subscription service that, as the image below shows, will allow you to update your maps for as little as
$11.95$9.85 each quarter depending on the map type for your device. Four times per year gets you maps each quarter for $39.40… a great deal.
There is one caveat, and that is that you need to start the subscription service with a current map. For example on the first device I checked the map was three quarters old. To update to the latest map I was offered a price of $35.85, and from there I could subscribe to the map updates for $11.95 per quarter. Specifically, it was worded like this:
You currently have a map of North_America_2GB which is 3 quarters old. The sooner you get on board, the fewer releases you will miss. We can help you to upgrade to the latest map for only USD 39.85 and then ensure that you have every new map for the next 12 months.
The TomTom Map Update Service ™ is a smart new way to have the most accurate and reliable map, always. It gives you every single release of your map over a fixed period, for the equivalent of just USD 11.95 per quarter. That’s four new maps in a year!
This means the total cost for 12 months is USD 47.80. Buy the Map Update Service now or click ‘Back’ to go to the full list of maps.
Keep in mind your prices might be a little different based on how recent your map is… The price could be less or ore. TomTom has not confirmed this is now available, however many users have reported seeing the update. If anyone has successfully subscribed and updated, let us know below.
Update: A TomTom PR rep has confirmed to me that the North American Map Update Service is available starting today.
