    Thanks for your reply I removed the TomTom My Drive Connect from my computer, and then re installed the soft ware and this cleared the problem it is now in the process of installing the latest maps to my Via135 sat nav.

    I re-installed MyDrive, However still having the problem that the server is busy.
    MyDrive also corrupted my navigation system, since it removed the complete map.
    result: No map on my device and MyDrive also not working anymore.

    Log out, uninstall the application and download a new version from their website.

    I did so, but without result.

    Did you make sure that the download folder had been cleared. accessed via "Settings" "Downloads", "Empty Download Folder"

    Hi All,

    Anyone on this thread still getting the Server busy message, I would need some log files which will be needed by our Development Team to investigate the issue better.

    1. Enable the logs (from Setting> general>Enable MyDrive Connect logs)>

    2. Now connect the device to MyDrive Connect and check if you are able to update?

    Do you still see the Server busy error?

    4. Here we will require the log file

    Make sure your MyDrive Connect is NOT running when you are making these changes.


    (Go to system tray and make sure you have quit the MyDrive Connect application)

    5. Then go to C:\Users\yourusername\AppData\Local\TomTom\HOME3

    6. Open prefs.ini ….. Make logLevel=255
    Also make a new entry with UrlQuery="?logLevel=FINER" under environment

    Start MyDrive Connet > If you still see the busy server error, you can zip the logs folder found in C:\Users\yourusername\AppData\Local\TomTom\HOME3\Logs and send it to me through a private message.

    Thank you,
