SERVER BUSY - TomTom MyDrive Connect application OUTAGE!!!!



  • brightjackbrightjack Posts: 0 [New Seeker]
    I kept getting this error when updating my device.

    Our servers are very busy right now
    Click Retry a few times until you are connected. If that doesn't work, close MyDrive Connect and start it again.

    I have a lifetime map included device, and it is EOL, but on MyDrive I can still see v10.25 map version is available to me, but "servers are very busy" happens when I update...

    Over the last few weeks, I have tried multiple times to update my device using the MyDrive Connect. After several minutes, I get a message that there was a problem and to click retry several times and try again.

    The TomTom support page on their website says, "You may be currently experiencing issues updating your device using MyDrive Connect. We are working on a fix with high priority."

    Any idea when this will be resolved?

    Seems like there is a general issue ( and not related to your device in particular.

    Hi, paulakparker!

    It seems like you are not alone here, I am experiencing this issue too. But you may try this steps and see if it works.
    1. Uninstall MyDrive Connect using RevoUninstaller (
    2. If you are using Windows then:
    2.1 Open Run (Win+R)
    2.2 Type %temp% and press Enter
    2.3 A folder will open, select all (CTRL+A) and delete everything (SHIFT+DELETE)
    If some folder or files don't get deleted then skip them
    3. Reboot the computer
    4. Download and install MyDrive Connect (
    5. Sign in to your account and connect your navigation device
    6. Try to update your device

    If the option above worked, mark this as an answer, thanks!

    Firstly try Logging OUT of MyDrive Connect (Screen Top Right) then log back in again with your Credentials... Simple but it has worked for some users

    On the rare occasions that I have a problem with MyDrive Connect
    I Un-install MyDrive Connect using the Revo Uninstaller (Windows PC )
    There must be a equivalent Deep un-install program for a Mac

    Download & install the free version of Revo Uninstaller
    Revo first Un-installs the Program... Then scans and removes all of the left over files a normal Un-install leaves behind

    (1)... Uninstall MyDrive Connect Using the Revo Uninstaller
    (2)... Clear your browsers cache (Optional, but I find it helps)
    (3)... Restart your PC (Not Turn Off & Turn On again)
    Reinstall MyDrive Connnect (Without your device connected)
    Connect & Turn on your device... Login to MyDrive Connect

    If you use MyDrive Connect software.
    At the moment there are known problems with Tomtom servers. See here:

    You can try this:
    At first, with your device not connected to the PC:
    1/ In the MyDrive Connect (MDC) window at the top, to the left of the gear wheel (Settings), click on "Log out".
    2/ close the MDC window, right click on the MDC icon in the taskbar next to the clock, choose "Quit"
    3/ Open Windows "Task Management" and check if there is still a MDC process to kill 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"
    4/ Open MDC again and "Log in", enter your email and password.
    5/ Try again to download an update.

    If it doesn't work, with your device Not connected to the PC:
    1/ Uninstall MDC, accept the removal of downloads in the popup window.
    2/ "Restart" your PC (Not Shut down or Sleep)
    3/ Download and install the last version MDC, take it here, at the bottom, the green button "Download for ... ":
    4/ Try again to download an update.

    I hope that one of the two proposals will work for you.

    Hi Folks,

    had the same problem.
    tomtom via 62 connected to pc = ok
    When updating process started connection went broke and via 62 says "no map available."
    No connect possible.

    No update process startable.
    Took me 3 days to figure this one out.
    Nothing wrong with tom tom servers.

    Windows 10 deactivated a driver, after reactivating Update started straight away.

    include Foto of Driver.

    worked for me.

    Hi, I am told I have to do a fresh upload of Device OS and maps as there is a timing change with sats on 26th April. I have been trying to do the update for a month now but I just get an error that your servers are busy. I see on the support page banner that there is an update issue at your end which you are fixing "with the highest priority". Any news when your "Highest Priority" will result in a fix.
  • martnmartn Posts: 2 [Neophyte Traveler]
    Hi Thanks. I tried these approaches before but with the device connected - that was obviously the secret. I did quit MDC but also saw in Task Manager that it left a process still running. I killed this process in Task Manager, restarted MDC without the device, connected the device and everything worked - thanks
