Why is your maps update download so buggy? — TomTom Community

Why is your maps update download so buggy?

I'm doing my annual maps update, and having the usual torment with your appalling update process.

MyDrive tells me the maps are updated and I can disconnect the device. I turn on and off the device and it tells me no maps found. I reconnect it and it starts updating again.

An hour later the same thing happens. I look on the forum and as usual it's full of people complaining about your appalling updates. I follow the 'trouble shooting steps', because you won't fix your update process, so your customers have to become bug fixers.

I delete the downloaded files, I uninstall the maps and go through the process again.
I'm on my fifth attempt now. FIX YOUR DAMN UPDATES!

    Welcome to the community!

    The maps shows installed for your Start 25. Could you do a soft reset and check again please?

    Soft reset: Press and hold the on/off button till you hear the drum sounds.
