I've sold my tomtom device to a friend, but the devices is still associated to my account.
How can I do to remove the device from my account and how can the buyer do to associate the device to his account?

Best regards

    If your device is the Start25 of your user profile, you use the MyDrive Connect software for your updates.

    The services are linked to the device not to the owner. To change ownership, remove the device from your account and The new owner will register it on his own account.

    You, with your TomTom account, your device Not connected to the PC:
    1/ Remove the Start 25 from your account with My Drive Connect. See the pictures below.
    2/ Perform a Factory Reset of the Start 25. This will restore it to its original state by deleting all your personalized menu settings and your personal data. Your latest updates, map and NavCore internal software will remain.
