I am considering buying this product and as a new driver can see the benefits.

Question
UK/ROI upgrade to WE?

If not, any UK/ROI satnav that I CAN buy upgrade map download to include West Europe? Which usb lead do I need for desktop connection? - usb male-male (is the usb connection in the TomTom, female?)
Thanks.

Hi,

Thanks for using Argos Q&A.

Having investigated your enquiry with TomTom I can confirm that the TomTom Via 135 5 Inch UK and ROI Sat Nav only features maps for the UK and Ireland. The item does come with a USB cable supplied.

If you are specifically after a sat nav that supports maps for western europe, I recommend searching for "Sat Nav Western Europe" on our website and seeing if any are suitable.

I hope this helps,

Thank you for your question.

After looking into your query, I can confirm that in order to benefit from the lifetime maps promotion, you need to connect your TomTom device to an internet enabled PC. You are then required to register and create a TomTom account which will then allow you access to the maps.

Thank you for using Argos Q&A.
