How to get around a login issue but customer support is not available

PeckerpackPeckerpack Posts: 4 [Apprentice Traveler]
I am unable to login to MyDriveConnect - I am going round in circles, the software won't accept my password, no matter how many times I get it reset. I have tried to create a new account but it says my email is already in use. If I can't login I can't get my device updated and a new GPS system uploaded. My device is now USELESS - and I can't get customer support at all. I have never known such poor support!

    Sadly this did not answer my question. My TomTom is a MyDrive and the software i can't connect to is MyDriveConnect! The login just doesn't work, and I am unable to get real customer support for this problem!

    Hi @Peckerpack

    What Tomtom unit do you have that you are trying to update. With that info we may then be able to give your the right Customer support information.

    Thank you DougLap, I am thankful to say I have managed to login - I took everything off my computer and downloaded a new version of MyDriveConnect, and then I took out the email address that my computer remembered - the email address was completely correct, but somehow it wouldn't allow me to put my password in. Once I removed the email address and typed it in manually I was able to log in correctly. Can I just say one thing - downloading all the new updates was a nightmare because I had no idea if the downloads were happening - there was no progress bar - just thre little moving dots beside a phrase that said PREPARING FOR DOWNLOAD. I had no idea what was happening - waited for two and a half hours, then restarted my machine and then was led to a page that told me how much was still needed to be downloaded. Fortunately it didn't upset the downloads, and now everything is up to date! Sadly I am still not sure what model device I have - nothing on it to say what it is! I think it is MyDrive - only because that is what the software is called! Thank you for responding! Much appreciated!
