Hi. I open my drive on my pc and log in. I connect my tom tom premium to my drive using the supplied cable. It shows a picture of my device but says NOT CONNECTED . How , do i get my tom tom to connect to my drive every time i plug it in . Another question is , because i could not connect to my drive, i tried to update my device using wi fi, but my network doesn't show in the list of networks available . But it shows in the list of networks that cannot be connected to as they are out of range............. yet i am only 2 meters from my internet suppliers router ! How can i connect my device to my hone connections please. Many many thanks, as i seem to have had nothing but problems since buying this new tom tom !!!!! Stay safe. Cheers Jimmymerlin

    Please try follwowing:
    Restart your pc via the Statmenu.
    Then Start MyDrive connect and connect the device.
    When the device is switched on, hold the On Button about 20 sec til the device restarts with the TomTom Logo.
    Now tap Menu/Settings/System/info and look what it says at "Connection"
    I would expect it to say USB.

    If this is not the case, try using a different cable, e.g. from a smartphone.

    Note: the Premium does only support 2.4GHZ Wifi Networks.

    Hi @Jimmymerlin

    When you connect your TT unit to the PC is the unit still in its holder. If so remove form its holder and plug cable in the socket on the back of the TT unit.

    Hi
    @Jimmymerlin
    Welcome to the Site....
    Wi-Fi out of range errors....
    Are usually caused by the Wi-Fi Channel in use on your Router, being swamped by nearby Routers using the same channel....
    If your Router is 'say' using 2.4 GHz Channel 11 and other nearby Routers are also using 2.4 GHz Channel 11, then the 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi Channel 11 can/will get overloaded....

    Try unplugging your Router wait 30 seconds restart your Router....
