OUTAGE RESOLVED-Problems with MyDrive Connect and Accessing TomTom Services on the device

edited January 30 in MyDrive Connect
Hello all,

There are currently 2 issues we are facing. A team is working to get this resolved as soon as we can.
  1. MyDrive Connect- 'Waiting for device' error message / Unable to update or link to an account / connectivity issues.
  2. TomTom Services- 'Oops we are having trouble accessing TomTom Services. Please try again later' - This error mostly when you log in to MyDrive or TomTom Services or updating using WiFi.
We just published a banner announcement on our support website to inform the same.

I will let you know once a fix is deployed.

Thank you for your patience...

Regards
Vikram

    getting "Waiting for device" on my go live 1000 trying to update the Iberia map, even if I only update the map (gps-fix also failing on waiting for device"). Plenty of memory space left, 0.1 Mbps net usage for MyDrive connect. Navcore 12.075

    the gps is restarted (30 sec power button + drum roll), tried all types of ports, connecting - reconnecting, off - on, still can't update the map.

    I've just purchased the 1,5 year map service this monday and STILL can not use it. Please help.

    Thanks Vikram ... you are clearly the "goto TomTom employee" I referred to in a post earlier today ... if possible, an estimate of when the problem will be fixed would be very useful.

    I have just bought a TomTom Go basic. I am also getting the 'oops....we are having trouble accessing TomTom services' messaeg. I am driving to Spain in 2 days time so an indication of how this will take to resolve would be helpful. Otherwise I'll be taking it back and buying a Garmin. Wasted so much time this morning trying to resolve it.

    Thanks @VikramK for update and heads up

    Thanks Vikram, appreciate the banner on the support-site. I assume this will be the generic approach during future outages (which will hopefully limited).
    For Dave Masson: I called the helpdesk this morning and within minutes I spoke with someone from the customer care team.

    Kind regards,
    Roland

    Hi there!

    Though the style of this page is green(ish), the banner for this type of issues should be in a colour that stands out (i.e. red). I honestly missed it as first glance.
    Just my opinion, nevertheless.

    Regards.

    I have 2 devices both failing to update.

    One (with 1 update) stuck on 'Waiting for Device', the other (with 3 updates) stuck on 'Getting Ready' or 'Server Busy'.

    Thanks Vikram, at least we know it's now a recognised problem and being looked at. I can't mark the problem as fixed as it isn't fixed yet.

    I assume there will have to be a product update, so we'll find out it's fixed that way.

    Well as a long time very happy user of TomTom, I bought a new 520 unit recently. It just wont connect via any means. Ive sent it back for a refund. And now to cap it all "Connect" doesnt think my previous (1005) unit is registered and it's stuck in a loop trying to connect to TomTom to re-register it. Mind you, it aslo now has no maps after the most recent update. Time to consider the opposition I think.

    Hi
    @MaxW53

    The Tomtom servers are down... They are working on the problem
    ____________________________

    [h3]When the servers are back online[/h3]
    The NAV5 (Wi-Fi) devices like you’re GO 520 update using Wi-Fi...
    Tomtom recommend a minimum Wi-Fi download speed of 30Mbps
    Tomtom NAV5 (Wi-Fi) devices will only connect to a 2.4GHz Wi-Fi network
    All the update actions are executed on the device...

    If Wi-Fi is not available or is slow/unstable/unreliable.....
    See Option... (2) Connect over USB
    ___________________________

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

    I always update my devices one Update at a time
    The NavCore Application and QuickFixGPS updates are force ticked by Tomtom... Deselect any other updates like Maps, Speed Cams etc... Update the mandatory item/s, when complete update the remaining items one at a time

    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.....
    Tomtom recommend a minimum Wi-Fi download speed of 30Mbps
    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

    870d2bce-aa69-408c-b876-cf4aeb5e2fb5.png
    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

    As a new tom tom user as of 3 hours ago I have to say I am not impressed. My device is stuck on being added and has been for 3 hours. I should of just stayed with Google maps on my phone instead of wasting money on a satnav
