go 6200 wifi connectioen

go 6200 connection for example wifi in hotel, it connects when access code is asked for and put the code in, it does not connect when the hotel wifi just needs your "YES" just to agree to the hotel conditions. There is no opportunity to put your Yes in a box

    Hi
    @janali

    I would NEVER try to update a GPS (Or any other Software Update) using a Hotel Wi-Fi
    I would always update at Home at least a week beforehand or NOT update it at all until I returned Home....
    With some of the Maps 8GB in size and the appalling Hotel Wi-Fi Speed and Signal strength/Signal quality it's almost a guaranteed recipe for disaster

    Tomtom recommend a minimum Wi-Fi download speed of 30Mbps
    Tomtom NAV5 (Wi-Fi) devices will only connect to a 2.4GHz Wi-Fi network

    __________________________________

    The NAV5 (Wi-Fi) devices like you’re Go 6200 normally update using Wi-Fi...

    TomTom Video... Updating your navigation device using Wi-Fi®



    If you have successfully connected your device to your Wi-Fi....
    To check your Connection Speed, Signal Strength & Quality
    On the Device... Tap 4Dot (.... Menu) --> Settings --> Wi-Fi
    Tap on the Your Wi-fi name (The one Showing as connected)
    A new Menu Page opens

    On the left-hand side of the screen is your Wi-Fi Connection Status

    Tomtom recommend a minimum Wi-Fi download speed of 30Mbps

    Extra Maps are Installed/Maintained... Tap the 4Dot(.... Menu) --> Setting --> Maps

    I always update my devices one Update at a time
    The NavCore Application and QuickFixGPS updates are force ticked by Tomtom... Deselect any other updates like Maps, Speed Cams etc... Update the mandatory item/s first, when complete update the remaining items one at a time

    Note... NAV(5 Wifi) devices connected over Wifi do not require MyDrive Connect to be running Even if myDrive is running you have no access the MyDrive Connect menu structures as used by the previous NAV3 & 4 devices

    Option... (2) Connected USB
    If Wi-Fi is not available or is slow/unstable/unreliable.....
    Tomtom recommend a minimum Wi-Fi download speed of 30Mbps
    Updating your new NAV5 (Wi-Fi) device over USB will require "MyDrive Connect"
    Get it here.....
    www.tomtom.com/getstarted
    Run MyDrive Connect.....
    Note... The NAV(5 Wifi) devices have no access the MyDrive Menu structures as used by the previous NAV3 & 4 devices

    Updating a NAV5 (Wi-Fi) device using USB is the same as using Wi-Fi, all of the update actions are executed on the device...
    Tap the 4Dot(.... Menu) --> Setting --> Updates & New Items
    Extra Maps are Installed/Maintained... Tap the 4Dot(.... Menu) --> Setting --> Maps
    __________________________

    Note... MyDrive Connect will only show a "Splash screen" saying "Connect your device using Wifi" etc
    If required you can close the 'Main Mydrive Window' showing the "Connect your device using Wifi" Splash screen... MyDrive Connect only needs to run in the background on the PC TaskBar

    You need internet connection to synchronize the routes in my drive with your tomtom. Safe or not

    Hi @janali

    You don't need to log your GO6200 into Wifi in order to get a Route sent from a PC or the My Drive App on a Phone. Your unit has an Inbuilt Mobile Sim and it will receive the route via that facility. It just takes a little longer.

    Should you ever need to do a factory Reset of the Device once you have set it up and it has logged into your account it can use the Mobile Sim to sync all the My places, Poi and Route files on your account if you have no Wifi available at the time.

    Doug.
