I've just purchased a new device and wondered how to unlink and delete my old device from tom tom home? also does the new device (Go basic) use TomTom home at all or is it just mydrive now?

    HI @Gellerbing
    If you are selling the unit then

    Tap Settings
    Tap Factory Reset.

    Do a full reset

    This deletes all your Data although maps and software are not affected and the new owners can add the unit to their account.

    Hi all


    To delete your old TomTom device used with the TomTom Home software, the TomTom XL in your user profile, contact TomTom Customer Service:
    United Kingdom
    02079 490 132
    Monday - Friday: 9:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

    - - - - - - -

    For your GO Basic, it's a Wifi device for your updates you have 2 possibilities:

    - directly with Wifi without using your computer. TomTom recommend a minimum of 30 Mbps for Wifi.
    - with your computer only for the internet connection by installing before the software MyDrive Connect (MDC).

    In both solutions, all the management and the launching of the updates are done in the device
    ==> Main Menu 4Dots..../Settings/Updates and New Items

    To connect to your TomTom account and register your new device, it's also in your device.
    ==> Main Menu (4Dots....)/Settings/My Drive/ your email and passworld

    For updates, don't do them all at the same time. The NaVCore first alone, then the map alone, then the speed cameras, etc...
    During the download if you use Wifi, connect your device to a power source, a main charger (2A smartphone) or a PC only for power (with MDC not active)

    For more information see this FAQ and video:
