Lifetime world maps missing on the Go 5100


I've recently perchaced a Go 5100. I'm struggling however to download the world maps. Can anyone point me in the right direction ? I thought they would have been pre intsalled.

    Hi @Mortman

    Welcome to the community!

    I asked our team to make some changes in the back-end, and I would want you to do a soft reset and check for update in MyDrive Connect.

    To install some of the Large Maps from the World Map Collection you will have to install a Branded16GB or 32GB Class 10 Micro SDHC card

    Hi VikramK

    How do I perform a soft reset? I’ve been in touch with TomTom over the phone today and I have been emailed these instructions below. I tried this but there’s still no world maps in my MyDrive account on my pc. What can I do next? I’m really disappointed as we’re going to Florida soon and the 5100 is advertised as having world maps installed.

    Dear Mr.mortimore,

    Thank you for contacting TomTom. The reference number for your query is 190xxxxx-xxxxxx. As discussed on the call, we have recreated your device in our system with the World map service and I request you to follow the below trouble shooting steps to activate the service correctly.

    2> After the reset, without selecting any option re-start the device.

    3> Setup the device and login on device.

    4> Logout and re-login on the Mydrive Connect

    Hi @Mortman

    A Soft Reset is the following:-

    Turn the GO5100 on and when it is working hold the ON/OFF button down for about 20 seconds or so until you hear the Drumroll sound then let the button go. The unit will restart.
