    You are using MyDriveConnect to update your device, if not get it from here https://uk.support.tomtom.com/app/product_select/locale/en_GB

    Also do a soft reset, you will loose nothing, it is like rebooting your computer and reloads all the new files from an update. Also remember to do this when you arrive in Australia.

    If you fail to update your device before you leave, contact Customer Services in Australia, number below

    A soft reset :- with your device charged for at least 2Hrs "OR" have the device plugged into a power supply; press and hold your on/off button until you hear a drum-roll sound (or the TomTom hands symbol appears) then release the on/off button. Make sure you are outside and have a clear view of the sky (satellites)

    I have linked the images of what im getting i tried a soft reset and that didnt work, ive tried to re-buy the map and the picture i have linked is as far as i get on their website where its asking me to click my drive connect or my drive home, i assumed i should be clicking on the my drive connect but it does not allow me to click on either of these links nothing happens when i click them so i dont know whether this a bug within tomtom

    Wait a couple of hours to see if the map becomes available. Also you did use the same email address to do the purchase as you use to log into MyDriveConnect?

    Yes its the same email and i purchased yesterday evening also, i dont know whether its more about the links not working if you see in the second image where it says click on the my drive connect or tomtom home those do not work it does not let me click on either of them so i dont know whether thats the reason the map cannot download fully or not

    As time is running out before you go, try restarting your computer

    Looks like it is a call to Aussie Customer services when you are in Oz then. :(

    Sorry to say but (from various other forum comments) it looks like TomTom have a server failure this weekend, so you will have to wait till Monday to contact Customer Services to resolve this lack of maps
