    Hi @Terry1_

    We are on a TomTom help forum between users, Not on a Windows forum. What type of TomTom device do you have?

    If you want to use "MyDrive Connect" with a TomTom device (Car or Rider) that needs it, it's not an App that you can find in the Microsoft Store but a software. So no alternative App:

    If it is to use "MyDrive" the route planner it's an internet link:

    Or there are the route planner "MyDrive" App but only for use on Android or IPhone devices:
    https://www.tomtom.com/en_gb/sat-nav/car-sat-nav/mydrive/

    It is possible to exit Windows "S" mode (S as security) but if you do it it is at your own decision and at your own risk. Check before about the consequences for your computer on the web by a search.

    Some informations:
    The operation is normally free, a Windows Home requires more hardware resources and energy from your computer than a Windows "S". Once done, the operation is irreversible and permanent, No go back possible.

    Hi
    Thanks
    I have an old satnav that needs updating. I have downloaded MyDrtveConnect but I get a display saying need to remove the S or get an App from the store. I am loathe to tinker with security so my enquiry us can I update without removing this.

    Hi @Terry1_

    I understand you don't want to change your PC security or your OS especially if it's permanent.
    Maybe you have the possibility to use another computer (family, trusted friend)?
    Unfortunately, there is no other solution for the MyDrive Connect software, it works under Windows7/8/10 or MAC OS. There is still a version for windowsXP or Vista.

    Regards.
