I cant save locations under My Places on MyDrive

GlockersGlockers Posts: 43 [Prominent Wayfarer]
If I try to save a location on MyDrive (on Safari) it allows me to go through the whole process "successfully" but the place doesnt show up under My Places nor does it display on the map.

I have done this successfully previously but need help!

    Which device are you trying to synchronise MyDrive locations with?
    Remember that as there is no more 2G network in Oz, so no more 'Live' data, this can only be done via WiFi if you have such a device, or USB cable otherwise.

    Not about synchro.

    Hi
    @Glockers

    The MYDrive Web Route planner
    Here... https://mydrive.tomtom.com

    To save and sync a Location to Myplaces on the MYDrive Wed Route planner & MyPlaces on the device (Your Earlier Posts say GO 6200)
    (1)You need to be logged into MyDrive on the device
    (2)... Connected over Wi-Fi
    OR
    (3)... Connected over USB with My Drive Connect running in the background

    On the MDW Route planner... Right Click on the required location
    A Quick menu opens... Click Add to MyPlaces
    The Named MyPlace will be added to the MDW Route planner and the device

    I've just created 2 MyPlaces 'Bill's Mothers' & 'Bill's Mothers 2' using the MDW Route planner both were listed on the MDW & my GO 6200

    I logged out and back in again and lo and behold I had 3 new places - I had tried 3 times to set it up.

    So it worked - sort of. Why it didn't show the new place (either on the map or in the list) each time I created it is hard to tell.

    I was pretty clear I thought "save a location on MyDrive (on Safari)"?
