Hi all,

We've just released a new MyDrive app v1.9.0 for Android and iPhone and it's available for download in Google PlayStore and iTunes AppStore respectively.

  • Select any location on the map and set it as the starting point.
  • Reverse the starting point and destination of a route with a single tap.

    Did you click "show content" above?
    You will have seen the up/down arrow that is labelled "Reverse start and end-point"

    Thanks MikkoK, looks cool

    I would like it alongside the travel times also to show the distances (without having to open each of the routes). It would make it easier for me to judge between travel time and distance. I might like 5min extra travel time in order to save 10km.
    This also applies also for the web version.

    Tell you what else is new, the lack of ability to paste the address into the search box on the android app.

    Lack of support for devices such as the 5000/5100 ?

    Just checked the apple app and you can still copy and paste, why was the android app made worse?

    The new update on Android has finally fixed the copy and paste bug. ☺

    Hi Mikko,

    I tried but there are only Mac and Windows version of MyDrive app, not the android version.

    I would like to have MyDrive app installed on my android phone, so that I could update new information through my phone instead of unplug the device from my car and upload the update through PC, whenever there is new update.

    Thanks,

    Hi Philip,

    Sorry, I made a mistake with the link. Can you try again?

    Thanks, Mikko

    I tried the link on my phone but it directed me back to Google PlayStore Singapore. Attached is the screenshot. i.e. "This item isn't available in your country."

    Is there any other way that I can install the app, bypassing the phone location (i.e. Singapore)?

    Thanks,

    Hi Philip,

    Thanks for the info!

    I see that you're on Wi-Fi®. You're not using a VPN or proxy connection, are you?

    Cheers, Mikko

    Hi Mikko,

    No, I was not using VPN or proxy connection.

    However, I've tried using HMA! PRO VPN, connecting to server in UK/Australia , but I'm still getting the same result. The Google PlayStore was able to recognize my phone as Singapore phone, and link me back to Singapore. It seems like it has something to do with my Gmail account (Singapore) that I used to sign in to Google PlayStore.

    Is it anyway that I can get access to apk file and install the app locally?

    Thanks,

    Just curious, how long does it take to insert MyDrive app into UK Google PlayStore server? Do you need to pay $$ to insert an app into the PlayStore?

    There are quite a number of Tomtom users in Singapore, for those who use iPhone has no problem, but it was a real headache for Android phone user. We have to install and uninstall the Tomtom units from our vehicle to update the software.

    Best regards,

    Thanks Mikko, as tugman had mentioned, you have been very patient in answering my requests and indeed, providing excellence services to the Tomtom's android Users in Singapore. The Singapore office can't solve this problem and I've wrote to Tomtom Australia Customer service, and they told me to wait for the app to be released into PlayStore Singapore server and that's was two months ago.:(

    I'm looking forward to your solutions...

    Thanks again and have a nice day.....:)
