Id like to be able to import my recorded routes i have made on my tomtom rider 410 either via bluetooth or via internet connection, so that i can share them with my friends and they can use them too - i cant believe in 7 years you havent worked out how to make bluetooth work in both directions. Surely if you update the my routes section of the mydrive app which then populates the tomtom it can also work the other way - have tried all the usual MTP transfers, bluetooth and internet but to bno avail - anyone every come up with a solution?

    The NAV4/NAV5 (Wi-Fi) Rider 4xx & 5xx also have the "Easy route upload" option....
    My Rider 550
    The Rider 4xx/5xx will give you direct access to a small buffer/transfer area of the Rider 4xx/5xx Main Memory... You can also access your Micro SD Card, you can drag & drop your .ITN or .GPX route files directly to the Rider 4/5xx Memory buffer/transfer area or the Micro SD Memory card over a secure system
    NavCore Version 15.302

    This update applies to the Rider4xx/5xx
    With the "Easy route upload"... You can connect your TomTom Rider to your PC using a USB cable, then drag and drop your route files directly to and from your device’s memory using a file explorer program.....

    The example below is my Rider 400... The Rider 550 uses the same "Easy route upload"
    (1)... Connect Your device via USB and this screen appears on the Rider 400
    (2)... Tap the Import route Icon and the Rider 400 connects to the secure "Easy route upload"
    (3)... On your PC filing system you should see "Tomtom Rider 400" where you can drag and drop your route files directly into the Rider 400 main memory or the Micro SD Card
    (4)... If you haven't got a Memory card installed, it only shows the Rider 400 Main memory
    (5)... Drag & drop your route files to the device or the Memory card
    (6)... When you're done, tap "Done"
    Note... Mac OS X....
    TomTom Rider uses the USB Media Transfer Profile (MTP) for transferring routes. On a Mac you need to install a program that supports USB MTP, such as Android™ File Transfer.

    Once the program is installed, connect your Rider 4xx/5xx to your Mac and select Import routes. This switches the device to MTP mode. Route files such as GPX and ITN can then be copied to the internal memory of your device or a memory card using the MTP program.
