Sync mydrive not working on Rider 450

Jo SorensenJo Sorensen Posts: 2 [Apprentice Traveler]
I find TomTom MyDrive Connect extremely poor when trying to sync
Does anyone know a fix. I am starting the PC attaching the TomTom via cable. The TomTom tells me it is connect to my computer and asks me if I want to import routes. If I click yes I then get a message to use your computers file browser to copy routes into the device.

If I open my drive connect and import routes and then open the route and open the "Smartest route planner" Double click on a route activeate the sync this route with my device. Nothing happens. When I log out of mydrive connect and turn off the TomTom and log back in nothing happens. Why is this so difficult??? What happened to a button that just says send to your device, would that be so hard. ??????? I am soooooo frustrated right now

    Hi
    I think you are trying to combine two transfer systems.....

    [h2]Transfer .GPX routes with "Multiple Stops"[/h2]

    To transfer .GPX routes with "Multiple Stops" created using Tyre to Travel or the previous MyDrive Web (v1) Route planner (May work for .GPX routes from other route planners)

    Had a dig around in the MyDrive Web (v2) Route planner
    The following allows me to Edit/Save/and Transfer/Convert to .ITN any .GPX routes created using Tyre to Travel or the previous MyDrive Web (v1) Route planner

    Re... Old .GPX Routes stored in MyRoutes
    Re... Old .GPX Routes created using Tyre... Follow the red text for the old tyre .GPX files
    If you have routes created using the previous MyDrive (Web) Route planner

    The MyDrive Web (2) Route planner won't allow editing of these routes
    If you Select the route... The route loads but there is no Edit Icon available

    49a60310-40f2-4ac7-bebe-de7c281e558c.pngBut if you save the .GPX file to your desktop (See above Image)
    Then re-import the file into the MyDrive (Web) Route planner
    Import the .GPX file that you created using Tyre to Travel into the MyDrive (Web) Route planner

    MD Route planner now creates 2 files one you can edit (Finish Route) the other not

    d8c0f3dd-1c0f-45fe-8909-bb44a5886ed4.pngDelete the file you can't edit

    953e560f-e48b-47ab-af02-ef0c978a1d67.png
    Select the route that is left, Click "Finish Route"
    The Route Planner will re-calculate the route
    The planning menu will open with the "Send to the device" and the "Save" Options Available

    305f8a24-5b77-4cb7-a07f-7c43750807b4.png
    Click "Save" to save the route
    When you next load the route, you are offered the "Edit Icon" to edit the route

    The "Send to device" works fine, the route syncs OK with the device
    "Send to the device" works fine, the .GPX Route that you created using Tyre (along with any Stops), syncs OK with the device
    ___________________________________________

    I've also found.....
    Convert a .GPX route to an .ITN on the device
    When you have sent a route to the device using "Send to device"
    After the device calculates the route you can.....

    Tap somewhere on the displayed route
    A quick Menu should open Tap the 3Dot Icon
    Tap Manage Route
    Tap Add to my Routes
    Accept or Rename the route
    Tap Add
    The route is added to "MyRoutes" as a .ITN file (Solid Arrow) displayed in the MyRoutes list of routes

    fa6e44d7-2a3a-4cd9-9fe5-01518f1dd61e.jpg Note... This doesn't work if you have used the "Save & Sync" option to transfer your route, the "Save & Sync" option transfers a .GPX (Track)
    Whereas the "Send to device" option transfers a .GPX (Route)

    Thanks for replying, when I get a chance I will try to get a handle on all the info and see if I can get more savvy with this new nav device. :)
