when opening MyDrive connect the text size is unreadable due to being too small. The computer I am using Windows 10 is a high resolution display. nosolution so far magnify the display to 500% and this only just allows the screen to be read if i go right up next to the screen. Tried uninstall and re-install with latest version no difference. The road image is perfect but the rest is tiny.

    Hi
    @John_Thorburn175

    Maybe... Use Win10 Magnifier to make things on the screen easier to see

    Hi all

    @John_Thorburn175

    In addition to the Windows Magnifier you can try this:

    Edit of June 08, 2020

    You can try this:
    1/ Close and Quit MyDrive Connect:
    Close the MDC window then Right-click on the MDC icon in the taskbar next to the clock, if necessary click on the symbol ^ to find the MDC icon, choose "Quit".

    2/ Open Windows "Task Management" and check if there is still a MDC process in background to stop it:
    ==> In your taskbar / Right-click in any open place / Task Management / "Processes" tab / if you find "TomTom MyDrive Connect.exe * 32" ==> Right-click / "End Process"

    3/ Change MDC compatibility properties:
    - On the MDC launch icon ==> Right click/Properties/Compatibility tab/ check 'Override high DPI scaling behavior, scaling performed by:'/ in the list, select 'System (enhanced)'/Apply/OK

    4/ Restart MDC again.

    See if this brings an improvement to the MDC display.

    Regards.

    If youre struggling to read text IN YOUR BROWSER not the TT unit, one of the standard windows keyboard shortcuts to increase or reduce text size is CTRL+ +(plus) or - (minus) to increase or reduce size respectively. This has nothing to do with TT. Its a windows function and has been a standard feature for many years.

    Sorry to say CTRL+ + (plus) or - (minus) has no effect when using Tomtom MyDrive Connect....
