Haven't used my device for a long time, downloaded newest MyDrive Connect for MAC, it recognized the device and updated NAV Core, rebooted device. After that unable to connect.
Found log file filled with many identical lines
2020-12-01 22:17:59.398|50331742|Error|SecureStorageMac::RemoveItem|Failed to remove password for cookie or proxy error The specified item could not be found in the keychain.
Tried removing TomTom folder from Application Support and start over but the same result.
Device seems to work just fine, maps are present.

    Hi @bodaka

    Welcome to the Community! Few users managed to resolve the KeyChain Access problem with MyDrive Connect by following the steps here.

    Hope it helps!

    @lampard Error says that item is not found. That is why a suggestion to delete it is useless.
    There is nothing in keychain that matches "tomtom" as shown here:
    Are there any other suggestions?

    @lampard based on macOS 11.0.1 Big Sur is not supported, even macOS 10.15 Catalina is not supported.

    Hi there @bodaka

    We've not seen any reports of MyDrive connect not working on the new version of macOS (Big Sur) and I think the above FAQ you mentioned is outdated and I'll report it to the team. However, try a clean re-installation of the MyDrive Connect application and see if this helps.

    I am in the same boat as @bodaka. I have 2 Macs, one running Big Sur and the other running Catalina. I have reinstalled MyDrive Connect on both computers, but neither of them is able to connect to my GO 600 using MyDrive Connect. Not sure what to do now.

    I moved my attempts to Catalina and after significant struggle, repeating workaround many times, e.g. deleting tomtom* keys from keychain and even tomtom data folder from user home was able to update map after several attempts. One of the requirements was to disable screen saver and computer sleep since MyDrive Connect could not cope with either one and complete restart including workaround above required. This is the most horrible piece of macOS software I have ever seen. Unfortunately I have no access to Windows desktop at this time.
