Do I have lifetime maps on my gps tomtom 730


If your TomTom GPS model number (when you originally purchased it new) is shown with an "M" ... e.g. GO 730M ... it indicates that the TomTom GPS unit you'd purchased includes free lifetime maps (updates) just for the map included in that unit, e.g. USA and Canada. If it shown with a T, e.g. GO 730TM ... it indicates that it also includes traffic data.
When you register the unit (on the TomTom website), and you log in to the TomTom website (using the TomTom HOME or MyDrive Connect), it will (automatically) tell you if/when you have an updated version of the map to download, to replace the current one on your device.

TomTom map of Poland is hopeless. should get a free update on a new device. There are a lot of new roads in Poland and the device which I bought 2 months ago does not take it into account at all. Can't...


You will only get a free update on a new device if you install tomtom home on your computer and login withing the first 2-3 months of purchasing your device. Also, if you purchased a device that is "refurbished" or "recertified" then you do not get this free update and your map can be up to about a year and a half old. In this case, you would have to purchase a map update. To update you will have to install TomTom Home on your computer (download from TomTom.com) and login. You can typically purchase one update for about 45 USD or purchase a year of updates for just a little more (like 59.99 USD). A "year of updates" gives you an updated map each quarter for one year. I don't know that I would have bought a TomTom for use outside of North America or the UK. Sorry.

You can use the latest 'Tomtom Home' to purchase and download the AUSTRALIA map for your GO 700.
SYDNEY is included as well all major cities (ADELAIDE, BRISBANE, CANBERRA, DARWIN, MELBOURNE, PERTH, ETC...) and 99+ % of all Australian roads.
Hope it helps.

I JUST BOUGHT A NEW TOMTOM XL GPS TODAY, HOWEVER, THE MAPS IT CONTAIN ARE NOT UP TO DATE. IT DOESN'T EVEN INCLUDE MY CURRENT ADDRESS. WHAT SHOULD I DO?


E$ither return it to exchange the unit for qa more recent edition or contact the aseller for the coide to get an update. Maps are generally 12 months behind because for the conversion of data for all models and brands. So if your address is 12 months or less that is why it's not on there. Also check on Google to see if you are listed. If not then you will not get an update from TOTOM with it on either.

As I always suggest, your maps might be off if you haven't updated since you bought the device, or haven't updated in quite some time. Run the device through TomTom Home to update your maps, and it should provide the fix
