When I plug the device in all I get is this screen.

If I disconnect it it shows me a picture of the device, and not a lot else.

is there more to it?

    It's saying that those models normally are updated using WiFi. In other words, MyDriveConnect is not involved at all. All updates are initiated from the device.

    Hi
    @andygriffiths

    The NAV5 (Wi-Fi) devices like you’re Rider 500 update using Wi-Fi...
    All the update actions are executed on the device...

    Option... (1) Connected Wifi
    Tap the 4Dot(.... Menu) --> Setting --> Updates & New Items
    Extra Maps are Installed/Maintained... Setting --> Maps

    Note... NAV(5 Wifi) devices connected over Wifi do not require MyDrive Connect to be running
    Even if myDrive is running you have no access the MyDrive Connect menu structures as used by the previous NAV3 & 4 devices


    ______________________________

    Option... (2) Connected USB
    If Wi-Fi is not available or is slow/unstable/unreliable.....
    Updating your new NAV5 (Wi-Fi) device over USB will require "MyDrive Connect"
    Get it here.....
    www.tomtom.com/getstarted

    Run MyDrive Connect.....
    Note... The NAV(5 Wifi) devices have no access the MyDrive Menu structures as used by the previous NAV3 & 4 devices
    MyDrive Connect will only show a "Splash screen" saying "Connect your device using Wifi" etc
    If required You can close the 'Main Mydrive Window' showing the "Connect your device using Wifi" Splash screen... MyDrive Connect only needs to run in the background on the PC TaskBar

    Connect your Device to a USB Port on your PC
    Updating a NAV5 (Wi-Fi) device using USB is the same as using Wi-Fi, all of the update actions are executed on the device...
    Tap the 4Dot(.... Menu) --> Setting --> Updates & New Items
    Extra Maps are Installed/Maintained... Setting --> Maps
