Connection between PC and TomTom Trucker 6000

My TomTom Truck 6000 is as good as bricked right now - I cannot for the life of me understand why the system of updating is so bad! Surely allowing the software to be downloaded to your PC, (without device needing to be plugged in all night while downloading) and then updating from HDD is the logical solution.

I tried to update, the connection kept stopping between my device and PC (and, yes, I do understand PC's - USB ports / using the correct cable etc - and its not a faulty cable)

Now the MyDriveConnect app says my map is corrupted - It has a 'repair' button that does nothing - the screen where it suggests you can 'unistall' and start fresh, when I do this, the device content moves from right to left pane in the window, but the device memory does not clear / drop - so the free space is not sufficient to reload data. I put a memory card in the unit, but its unsuable! (tried preformatting for FAT32) - If I take the card out and view on my PC the TomTom has put some android files on it - so assume it should work.

Next time I will buy Garmin! :#

    Welcome to the site....
    Have you tried clearing the MyDrive Connect cache ???

    With MyDrive Connect running...
    Click on the Cog Wheel Icon Screen top right
    Click on the Downloads Tab
    Empty download folder
    Save settings
    See if the device updates using the newly downloaded Map files....

    Hi., thank you for your comments - :)
    Yes., I tried clearing the cache and also the factory reset (press and hold 10 seconds / power on 3 times) to ‘restore the device. It went through restore once - but didn't restore it!
    The unit itself now at switch on, goes through the country select and options., so the operating system seems to be Ok., its just the corrupt map and despite ‘uninstalling’ the content in MyDriveConnect, it doesn't free up memory.
