I cannot find a way to download startup images from my computer to my Go Live 235 unit. Is there a way to do this??

    Try this:

    With the device connected to the computer and MyDriveConnect running, right click on the small tomtom icon in the notification area of the computer next to the clock. One link that appears should be 'Manage Community Content'. Click it to add images and other stuff from the computer to the device.

    Great. No problems when you know the secret.. I do believe you maybe the only person on the planet who knows this..No covered anywhere in the users manual and I have been trying to get this answer from the internet for over 3 days but all the replies were useless..
    The Go Live 2535 is a great unit, but like all Tom Tom GPS products, their web site leaves a lot to be desired.. I suppose the Brits understand it.

    Thanks for your excellent help.

    Guess I replied too fast..The TomTom icon showed up ONCE in the lower taskbar corner and I was able to get to Manage Community Comment.. Then I logged off and have not been able to get the icon to show up again. Any suggestions on this?? I tried going to the internet to download but it seems the only way you can get this is by using that icon.

    When you connect your device do you get the typical device "bing bong" ?

    After hearing this, you must click on my link above as just entering just the IP address I get
    Error 403: Directory Listing Denied

    Thanks again..Finally got page to open...
    Now, the community comment page says I have 0 mb on my gps when Direct Drive shows I still have 17MB available..
    Not worth the effort to keep trying to download additional start up photos to my gps..
    TomTom has the worst site I have seen in years, very little seems to work the way it is suppose to...I cannot believe it is my computer as I have absolutely no problems like this on any other sites...
    Again, thank for the help...
