Viago

 

The prices I see for the add ons in viago are they all a one time fee or yearly prices?

One Time Fees

You'll have to purchase again if you replace your phone

Not correct

I just re-downloaded my North American maps from the App Store when I upgraded to an iPhone 6.

Link to info and updates for Viago App

You can download the app and add on's to a new device or more than one of the android devices that you own at the same time with no additional annual or and other fees. The maps are lifetime updates.

The same here on a new Samsung tablet...I believe it uses the Google userid for the tracking of Apps, but I could be mistaken on ViaGo.

Not in My Case

Although iTunes allowed me to initially install Viago with paid apps on both my iPhone 5 and iPad Mini, reinstallation of the program on a replacement iPhone5 was limited to the base Viago program without the paid apps. I was told by Garmin support that the purchase agreement for Viago paid Live services apps states the download is for one device only and offered the following quotes from the license agreement:

“Garmin may provide you services known as Garmin Live services. Garmin Live services may be a one-time Live services purchase or a purchase for a specific term. If a one-time purchase is made, purchasers of that service will receive Garmin Live services for the (i) useful life of the purchasers Garmin device, (ii) the useful life of the purchasers smartphone (if applicable) or (iii) as long as Garmin receives content from its third party supplier, whichever of the 3 periods is shortest…..”

“Lifetime Maps. If you purchased a nuMaps TM Lifetime subscription (sold separately) or if your Garmin product comes bundled with a nuMaps Lifetime or other lifetime map subscription, you will receive Map Data updates when and as such updates are made available on Garmin’s website, during the useful life of (1) compatible Garmin product or as long as Garmin receives Map Data from HERE, whichever is shorter…..”

From the comments made by other posters, it appears that this policy, like many other Garmin policies, is not enforced 100% of the time.

Garmin could be using the device's particular UUID to verify that *that* particular device *only* qualifies to have the purchases restored to it. It doesn't seem quite fair but if Garmin has it in their license agreement, then I guess users are stuck with having to re-purchase the content if their device needs to be replaced. It's the first I've heard of it, using the hundreds of apps I have over the years...I've always been able to restore in-app purchases to replacement devices without issue. Seems as if Garmin has made this ability an issue and will likely be the reason that I will not rely on Garmin's iOS navigation apps...a dedicated GPS unit is my preference.

A First for Me As Well

I've always found Garmin's policy enforcement pretty liberal in the past. I did see a post some time ago where someone else had a similar issue though. If I can find the thread, I'll post the reference.

No you don't have to pay again

I just bought a new phone and went to PlayGoogle, in my account, and downloaded Viago to my new phone and updated my maps to go.
Did not have to pay again.
My new phone is registered with my same email address that I bought the Viago App with.
