I purchased my TomTom with lifetime updates. Now that my device is no longer supported it will not stay connected or tells me the server is busy. I have done everything that support has suggested including buying two new usb cables. Nothing worked. I guess lifetime does not mean my lifetime but when TomTom says the life time is over. I will never buy another TomTom product and will advise other people not to.

    On the rare occasions I have a problem with myDrive Connect
    I Delete MyDrive Connect using the free version of Revo Uninstaller
    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
    Video using the Revo Uninstaller
    The Free & Pro Versions use the same process....

    (1)... Uninstall MyDrive Connect Using the Revo Uninstaller
    (2)... Clear your browsers cache (Optional, but I find it helps)
    (3)... Restart your PC (Not Turn Off & Turn On again)
    Reinstall MyDrive Connnect (Important... Without your device connected)
    Connect & Turn on your device... Login to MyDrive Connect

    f your device Does Have Lifetime Maps

    Tomtom have already stated that Lifetime Maps and any Existing Map Subscriptions will be honoured

    See VikramK Post (TomTom Staff) Here....


    Quote from the above Link....
    However, you will not be able to order Services(LIVE and Speed cameras) purchase new maps for other regions on the TomTom webshop

    Thanks. Nothing seems to work. I am assuming that it is Windows 10. Will try to find a Windows XP version.

    Hi @WCC

    Just in case you have recently changed the PC have you checked whether or not the USB sockets are stopping during the updates because of the Power Saving Settings. If this is possible then do a search on here for Power saving Settings and you wills a number of posts with advice on what to do.
