how to save my favorites on my pc-VIA 1625

I have my Tomtom VIA 1625TM and I am quite happy with it , I only need to save my favorites from the device to my PC as a back-up , I logged in into mydrive and started the device and tried to right click the connect icon but it does not give me the options needed like ( manage community content)

Anybody knows how to solve this problem ?

    the video is showing only how to transfer the favorites from the PC to the device while I need the opposite.

    thanks for telling me how to save my favorites from the gps device to my computer using mydrive applicaion.

    thanks for your reply but unfortunately it did not work.

    i followed all the steps you explained but the ( manage community settings ) does not appear , it appears ( settings ) only.

    Please help me to solve this problem.

    Many Thanks in advance .

    Is your device connected to the computer? Did you right click the tomtom icon in the notification area of the computer?

    Hi
    @Capitano75

    Was your device turned on and connected to a computer USB port....

    Were you connecting direct to a PC USB port, Don't connect through a USB Hub

    yes it was connected directly to the usb port and on , I have read that the new software is having problems with the ( manage community settings ) and doesn`t show it , is that true ?
