there is no option for switching off wifi and Bluetooth ??!!

It looks like that comrades from NDR did mistake in design stage. There should be warning during purchase... likely there is option to return money. Glad that still available.

    What is your problem?
    As your device only looks for a WiFi / Bluetooth connection with those sources that your have told it about and have setup a secure login for.

    Hi
    @Standa K

    You can't actually turnoff the Wi-Fi but you can forget it, the device will still be monitoring for a Wi-Fi service but not connecting

    Tap 4Dot (.... Menu) --> Setting --> Wi-Fi... Tap on your Wi-Fi's Name (Screen top left)
    Tap Modify --> Forget
    Follow on-screen instructions to finish

    Niall is unable to read. “WiFi/Bluetooth” no switch off option. Plus one more thing, TomTom is going backwards in improvements. Now there is no option for managing maps and updates over PC. :-) well done comrades from NDR. I’m starting to like this style...

    The NAV5 (Wi-Fi) devices 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
