    Hi @Dav2014

    I don't know MAC OS but the fact that your TomTom device always disconnects at the same download percentage makes me think of possible causes identical to Windows PCs.

    1 / Check if in the MDC settings, if "Download updates on my computer (recommended)" is checked.

    2 / "Sleep Mode" or "Energy Saver" cut off access to the network card or hard disk or USB ports. I disable it for MDC updates.

    3 / An aggressive firewall that blocks connections with TomTom servers. I had to make a total exception for the MDC executable file.
    VPNs are also blocking, the only known solution is uninstalling the driver.

    Otherwise contact the support:

    Thanks, think the problem was caused by me updating the mydrive connect before updating the device.
    the info re windows is good and I followed something similar to no effect.

    i know it says do not disconnect whilst updating but having read a load of stuff on the forum I had nothing to loose so I disconnected and connected to my MacBook and didn’t update the mydrive connect software
    Tomtom update started saying 52% complete nearing the end of update the tomtom said no maps available to update so reinstall or buy new!
    in the end it all updated and map was there

    Hi @Dav2014

    The main thing is that you finally have your map.
    Glad for you. :slight_smile:
