    You will know if your (specific) unit comes with a free life-time map update if it says so on the retail box that it comes in. Usually there is an "M" ... indicating free Map updates. A "T" indicates free Traffic (info) updates.
    Otherwise, you can register the unit (on the TomTom website), and use the TomTom HOME software .... to find out. When you connect the unit to your computer running the TT HOME software, it will automatically tell you if/when you have updates ... including any free map updates

    Free maps downlolad

    If/when you've just purchased a (brand) new TomTom GPS, you can register it (at the website) and download the latest map (for your device) .... free ... as part of the latest map guarantee.
    Whenever you connect your GPS to the TomTom website (via TomTom HOME), you'll get (free) updates to your current map version - ... but they are NOT new versions of the maps.
    To get new versions of your (current) map, you'll need to purchase the update (e.g. online, on the TomTom website). Upon paying for it, you will get the activation codes, etc. for you to download, validate and install the maps.

    If your GPS has lifetime maps, (after you have registered), you'll be able to connect (via TomTom HOME) to get the latest map release, without requiring any code/password.

    Update tom tom go 720 for free

    You may be able to get "free" map updates from (illegal) underground sources. But that's not recommended.
    Yes, you're right, you can simply get a new TomTom GPS and get the latest map(s) for it. Consider getting a TomTom with lifetime maps ....and you won't have to pay for any map updates.

    Just bought a tomtom one i drive a truck need to update maps can i do this for free the first time

    Assuming you bought your TomTom BRAND NEW in a TomTom box, I don't think it will be free, depending on the specific offer you got inside your GPS box. In most cases, it's just a discount. TomTom maps are around $100 for 4 quaterly updates (4 updates in one year). My TomTom came with a $15 discount, no free maps. Your offer may be different.

    Need to no about updated my tom tom plus would like to no what free maps there are

    1) You need to download and install TomTom Home on your PC/Laptop: see attached official TomTom link:

    2) You will then need to connect your GPS unit via the provided USB cable to your PC/Laptop withTomTom Home running and connected to the internet.

    3) Your current MAP can then be updated via the 'Update' selection. Any other 'system' files will also be updated automatically using this function.

    4) Using TomTom Home, you can also download free add-ons such as 'Voices' and 'Colors schemes'.

    If you just bought the unit within 3 months, you can update to the latest Map free of charge using 'Latest Map Guarantee' function in TomTom Home otherwise, there are NO FREE ADDITIONAL FREE MAPS.

    Hope it Help: let me know how you go!
