Every time I try to update my maps I have the same problems which everyone else seems to get. Servers busy!

Last time it took 6 days to update and in the process it wiped all my maps so the device was useless.

This has been going on for over a year but TomTom dont appear to be doing anything. Do the care? I doubt it.

I was thinking of upgrading my device but now I think i will just use Waze on my phone, it's much better and easier to use!

    I have a different MyDrive Connect experience to you... I maintain 8 assorted Tomtom devices and for me MyDrive Connect works well

    See Tomtom video No Maps found....

    On the rare occasions I have problems I Delete & Reinstall MyDrive Connect
    If you're using a Windows PC... Delete MyDrive Connect using the free version of Revo Uninstaller
    If you're using a Mac... Surely there must be a Deep Clean Un-installer Program available for a Mac ???
    Download & install the free version of Revo Uninstaller
    Revo first uninstalls the Program... Then scans and removes all of the left over files a normal uninstall leaves behind

    (1)... Uninstall MyDrive Connect Using the Revo Uninstaller
    (2)... Clear your browsers cache (Optional, but I find it really does help)
    (3)... Restart your PC (Not Turn Off & Turn On again)
    Download and install myDrive Connect
    DO NOT have your GO 600 connected to your PC while installing MyDrive Connect
    Connect & Turn on your device... Login to MyDrive Connect
    Note... If there is more than one Update, I find it's best to do the updates one at a time

    Tried ringing support, they said a 10 min delay but that ended up being 41 mins, I am now on hold while they look into the problem!!!!
