Is my Rider 450 dead?
I plugged in the 450 to check for updates...at which point it got stuck on updating...I've left the thing plugged in for over 24 hours and it still says updating.... I didn't get a chance to deselect any of the maps either as when the tomtom is connected it just goes straight into update mode.
I've tried all the remedies suggested in this forum, deleting caches, reinstalling TomTom My drive connect, changing USB port and disabling power suspend. Soft resets, hard resets (pressing the on / off button three times on the screen with the white writing). I've uninstalled Bitdefender and even reinstalled windows 10 to a bare bones install with nothing else installed.
Over the last week, I've lost count of the amount of times I've downloaded the updates only to delete them via emptying the cached, deleting HOME3 folder etc. On a couple of occasions I've unplugged the tomton to receive a message telling me upgrades installed successfully when they haven't. Tom Tom then wouldn't boot so I replaced SD card thinking it may be that (SandDisk Class 10 32gb). Now my device boots but only has maps that seem to be installed on the device. I live in UK and that map that I need (Europe) is missing. I've tried swapping to a smaller map (Tangiers) to keep the tomtom viable but no maps seem to download to my new sd card... just the preinstalled ones on the TomTom itself. (I've no plans to go to Africa or Australia anytime soon so a bit useless).
I now seem to have removed my device from my account... tried to add it back again only for screen to get stuck on Your Device is being Added and my Ride 450 showing as updating. How can it update when it is no longer associated with my account?
Unless there is some magic back end voodo stuff that can be performed I fear this thing is now just a brick.
