Went to use 550 in car but had all the issues with mydrive/IOS - so I understand in the meantime use Personal Hotspot for Traffice Data - do I need Bluetooth connection as well (not via MyDrive app)? Hope that makes sense!

    No BlueTooth, Just use the WiFi Hotspot.

    Remove BT connection on Rider and iPhone for more stable WiFi.

    Read in this discussion, at the bottom of page 11 I posted a temporary solution

    Below is is a screen-shot of Cyborg1963's workaround for the Bluetooth and iPhone problem, in case you have difficulty finding his original post. The screen-shot comes from the thread Rider 550 & iPhone XS Bluetooth Connectivity Problem, it's the 13th post from the start of the discussion.

    I tried Cyborg's fix and it worked for me. But, it seems that today TomTom has released an updated version of the MyDrive app for the iPhone (see this discussion: New version 2.1.3), hopefully that new version of the app will solve the Bluetooth connectivity problem and eliminate the need for the workaround.

    Cyborg, thanks a lot for sharing that fix, it was very kind of you to write it up for us.
