Brand new out of sealed box, go 6200. when I boot up has the message:
"No Map Available. You need to add at least one map before you can use your device".

So I have installed my drive connect (as administrator) on win 10. logged in with my tom tom credentials.

connected up an Ethernet lead in case wireless is erratic. network activity is fine. connected usb to my pc go6200 boots. do a soft boot then it comes up with that no maps message.
the my maps software goes no further than this:3f736a6d-282e-4ed1-9b7d-f89dbe2ecc65.jpg
so I follow prompts on 6200 and click to download uk map. It starts downloading (at an abysmally slow speed) I monitor network activity and see it down loading. when it gets to 91% all network activity stops and eventually it says "Oops no connection to internet" (which is not right). so I try again (and again and again with different maps) and it is always the same, 91% then stops.

What Am I to do? can I download a map some other way and load it on manually via usb or sd card??

I am an It engineer but it has got me!

    You should be able to add maps via WifI with that model. All actions are done using the device. If you don't have WiFi available, then you can use the computer for internet connection BUT with MyDriveConnect running BUT minimized.

    Hmmm. This doesn't seem to answer anything. I have tried wireless downloading but the connection occasionally drops so I am connecting wired. as said above but still with snails pace transfer.

    An update.

    I did a hard reset (triple tap). then downloaded via my maps connect (ie wired) a smallish map to get results faster (as it is still crawling along) is finally downloaded and runs ok. So now I try to download the Europe map... many many hours later I am STILL trying.

    So far, after scouring these forums, It seems to me lots of people have this problem with the 6200 and the 5200. I am beginning to feel I have been sold a brick.:(

    Is anyone trying to find out the download problem with these models???
