    Hi @rickplant

    You can do that with MyDrive Connect software.

    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 VIA 135 from your account with My Drive Connect. See the pictures below.
    2/ Perform a Factory Reset of the VIA 135. 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.
    In the VIA 135 ==> Tap the screen /Settings /Reset factory settings

    3/ Turn it off, don't do the procedure of 1st start.
    Your device is ready for its new owner.
