    HI @Gerry234

    If this is on your Live 1005 then be very careful as there have been problems with these following updates.

    TT units need about 400mb of spare capacity on the Internal memory for operational purposes and so if you load too many POI files etc you may run into problems. Check how much memory you have available.

    If you have a Windows PC and have Home Running then down the bottom of the screen you should have an Icon where the date and Time is. If you cannot see it is there a little upturned V which if clicked on opens more icons for you. Hover over them and click on the Tomtom one and this gives you the Add Community option.

    Hope that helps

    Try one of this links when yor device is connected to MyDrive Connect

    The links above you can open in your Browser when you connected your device with Mydrive Connect.
    It should be the same link if you open the point "Manage community content" via MyDrive Connect.
    The first link is for german devices, the second link I adapted.

    Hope it works :)

    Note: It is important that your device is also recognized with Mydrive Connect and displayed as Connected. Maybe this is the reason why MyDrive Connect does not display the "Manage community content" button.

    Hi all


    Your request is for "Manage community content" that no longer appear in MyDrive Connect after a software update?

    The problem has been reported on the forum.
    You can try to reinstall the last version MDC with a clean and recent setup file. It worked for other users and for me, I had the problem with one of my PCs.

    With your device Not connected to the PC:
    1/ Uninstall MDC, accept the removal of downloads in the popup window.
    2/ 'Restart' your PC (Not Shut down or Sleep)
    3/ Download and install the last version MDC, take it here:

    If that doesn't work, try with the direct GB link:

    For more information about adding POIs see this FAQ and video:
