Added here because no other forum seemed to match.
I have a continual problem updating my TomTom via.
As I sit here my TomTom is convinced it is connected to a computer.
My PC (vista) is equally convinced it is not connected to a TomTom.
My Drive seems to be no better than the previous my TomTom.
I know if I turn enough things on and off enough times I will probably get an update.
Since I can drive anywhere in Europe in less time that it takes to update my TomTom why do I bother?
Does anyone have a guaranteed way of plugging in a TomTom into a computer and getting an update in less that 1/2 hour?
Also why does the TomTom spell check want to replace TomTom with tomato? or is this the answer to my question!!

Thanks for the reply, well aware of the limitations of vista been fighting with it for years.
I have Mydrive installed, I did this about 2 weeks ago when I was last having problems. I thought this was the answer to my prayers as after the install the TomTom updated smooth as you like. Plugged in this time and back to the world of pain.
I think that TomTom should cut their losses and install WiFi capability in their TomToms then they could be updated by direct connection to the WiFi hubs that most people seem to have, what is better you could get your updates at any WiFi hotspot when you are on the road!

Upgrading won't make the slightest difference................I'm running Windows 7 and experiencing exactly the same problems! My theory (for what it's worth) REALLY POOR PROGRAMING! Updating shouldn't be a chore but TomTom make it exactly that! Wish I'd bought Garmin!

My Drive has a litany of technical glitches as I pointed out a few days after it was released and I suggested maybe it should be discontinued until propely fixed...due to the incredible pain and suffering it was causing and still is causing TT owners.
That being said it's inappropriate to suggest that someone using Vista should upgrade to Win 7 as a solution to My Drive when the technical problems aren't Vista it's My Drive. As noted by others the problems exist in Win 7 also, so recommending a person go to the expense and hassles to upgrade from Vista to Win 7 is not good advice at all.

Brilliant Mikko...................do you not think we've read the FAQ you posted before! I don't know about other users but I only posted myself because the information you previously posted wasn't at all helpful. Absolutely no point in reposting your previous FAQ if it doesn't answer the questions. These are inherent problems with the software that your company doesn't appear to want to rectify in the hope that we get tired of asking the same questions or go away!
IT REALLY ISN'T GOOD ENOUGH! ALL WE ARE ASKING FOR IS THE ABILITY TO SIMPLY UPDATE SOFTWARE WITHOUT DRAMA. UNFORTUNATELY THE SOFTWARE THAT COMES AS A BUNDLED PACKAGE WITH OUR PURCHASED TOMTOM ISN'T FIT FOR PURPOSE!
