Hello peeps,
Due to excessive battery drain from the always running mydrive android app, I wanted to know if it is possible to get live traffic to my GO620 without using the app at all?
I find the app is the weak link in the navigation process, with no way to switch it off and with flaky live traffic connectivity. So I simply want to bypass it.
Thank you.

    Hi
    @Whitey42

    If you only need a basic Phone and Data Connection you don't need the MyDrive App
    Just a Straight Bluetooth Connection
    Tap 4Dot (.... Menu) --> Setting --> Bluetooth --> Add Phone
    Tap on the ( ? ) Question mark Icon screen bottom left
    Select...
    Not interested in all of these features
    Connect without the MyDrive App

    Follow on screen instructions... To connect over basic Bluetooth
