Tried so many options and given up. All I want to do now is pair my Bluetooth earbuds to the rider. They pair but I get no sound. Any suggestions greatly appreciated!

    There's an unresolved problem with the Apple iPhone iOS 13 & 14 and above and the and the Tomtom 'MyDrive App' and the advanced Smartphone features... If you can live without the bells & whistles (Smartphone Messaging) of the MyDrive App...
    Just use a straight simple Bluetooth Connection....

    Some tips you may want to see/try....

    Hi @YamFazMan thanks for your comments.
    I have read a number of discussions on here and it appears I need a headset that uses A2DP.
    I have ordered some earbuds that use this protocol so hopefully I will at least be able to use my Rider! It’s a shame there is a lot of messing about as I’m not very techy at all!
