Well the lifetime was pretty short because the Live services expired on the 3rd January 2019, and the unit says I have to purchase a subscription.
Have I missed something in the setup here, or have I been misled?

Ok, I got onto TomTom support (in India?), and the GPS unit just required a factory reset. No drama.
In New Zealand we don't have much car traffic, but a mob of hundreds of sheep can create a bit of congestion on country roads (not kidding). Tomtom live traffic actually picks these up, and redirects. Pretty impressive.
