Updating a Tomtom Wi-Fi device over USB... The (Wi-Fi) device requires the use of the (Wi-Fi) Device Onboard Menus....
I've discovered a different way of updating the Wi-Fi devices.....
Using the MyDrive Connect Menu structure... Instead of the onboard (Wi-Fi) Menu Structure....
It works a treat, it's just like updating the previous NAV4 devices... But much faster as the (Wi-Fi) Devices update over USB on the fly i.e... No Download/Upload/Install....
___________________________

Method....
Make sure MyDrive connect is running on your PC Taskbar
Connect your NAV4 Wi-Fi device to a USB port on your PC
___________________________

On the Wi-Fi device....
Tap 4Dot (.... Menu) --> Setting....
Make sure the 'Updates & New items' Menu is displayed on the screen....
But DO NOT open the 'Updates & New items' Menu

Using MyDrive Connect....
With the latest MyDrive connect installed....
Use MyDrive connect exactly the way you would update a NAV4 device...
Using the offered Update Menus or by using the 'My Content' Menu....

When you have made your update selection... Click update button
My Drive Connect will display the "UPDATE DEVICE THE EASY WAY" Splash screen...

Now... Go back to the Wi-Fi device....
Next... Tap on the 'Updates & New items' Menu
The NAV4 Wi-Fi device will Start Updating and displaying the Spinning Disc....
Then the download Percentage Countdown.....

When the device has finished updating....
On the PC... To return to the MyDrive Connect Menus....
Click on the >> 'I Got it' << button of the "UPDATE DEVICE THE EASY WAY" Splash screen...

I think the Update is Set up and Initiated in MyDrive Connect....
Then Confirmed and Activated by simply... Opening the 'Updates & New items' Menu....

I've updated Maps, Speed cams, E.V. POI, Voices MapShare... It just works....
