I am on MyDrive Connect V 4.2.0.3437 and usually start it up via a longstanding icon on the Task Bar of my Win 8, 64 Bit PC. Browsing the directories today I looked in

User/AppData/Local/TomTom/HOME3/Updates

and found (apart from an array of older versions of MDC!) two shortcuts to open MyDrive Connect:

TomTom MyDrive Connect
- Target: "TomTom MyDrive Connect.exe"
- Comment: start MyDrive Connect

V2 MyDrive Connect
- Target: "TomTom MyDrive Connect.exe" -g 0
- Comment: start Mydrive Connect using Angle + directX opengl

I tried the V2 MyDrive Connect shortcut. MDC started up and I got a query box: "Does MyDrive Connect display correctly on your screen?" - YES NO

As it did I answered "YES" and it continued as normal and I was able to connect my TomTom and upgrade to the latest QuickGPSfix and community update.

Does anyone know what this 'V2 MyDrive Connect' is all about?

    Hi CatNip

    The v2 MyDrive Connect was a part of hotfix we released to resolve some errors.

    See the image below:

    If you don't have any issues after launching MyDrive Connect from the shortcut icon on the desktop then you don't have to worry about using the 'v2 MyDrive Connect'

    Regards
    Vikram :)
