GO 2535- This is how I made my device connect to an Apple Mac OS 10.10

Over the last couple of years I have experienced problems with connecting my TomTom car GPS to my MacBook Pro.
I solved the problem in Yosemite as follows:

Plug your device in using the USB cable.
Download and Run TomTom MyDrive Connect. (It loads into your Application folder.)

If it does not connect within 3 minutes go to:
System Preferences (Gear Wheel on the dock or Apple Menu at top left of the monitor.) Choose:
You should see TomTom Listed with an ethernet symbol
It had a green dot beside it but it still would not connect.
In the right hand panel you will see
Configure IPv4:
Change this to Using DHCP
Click Apply
If your device doesn't connect immediately, restart your computer.
(I deleted Cookies in Safari too but I don't think that is necessary.)
It has an orange/amber dot beside TomTom and it says
STATUS: Connected
TomTom has a self-assigned IP address and will not be able to connect to the internet.
However it still connected to MyDrive.

I hope this works for you.
Previously I solved it by manually entering an IP address. I just made one up and it worked!

    PS: It is possible that just restarting your Mac with the Device plugged in may be sufficient to solve the problem.
