    Try to log out of MyDrive Connect, then restart the PC via the menu entry "restart" and then log back into mydrive connect

    I have just noticed that the "free space" on my satnav is 3291mb and the update is 3648mb ! Is there a way to remove unnecessary files from my satnav, if so will this cure my problem

    Hi @ferret25f

    What size memory card have you got installed? The maximum you can add is 32gb.

    The problem is you need a map on the internal memory to enable you to replace the extra memory card with a bigger one.

    Much will depend on whether @VikramK is able to add a small map to your unit that you can load on the internal memory.

    sorry for the delay in replying, no memory card slot for this model "start 20".
    can i do a full factory reset, would this clear enough space to update.?

    Hi @ferret25f

    The Start 20 is listed as having an extra memory slot. Could you check using the following including the video.:-

    Hi
    @ferret25f
    Firstly Try....
    Disconnect your Tomtom device....
    (Do not Reconnect your device until instructed)
    Logout of MyDrive Connect....
    From the Power menu 'Restart' your PC (NOT Turn it Off 'n' On again)....
    Run MyDrive Connect & Login... Connect & Start your device....
    __________________________

    If you are still having problems with MyDrive Connect... I find deleting the "HOME3" and the "MyDrive Connect" folders in the MyDrive Connect Program will usually bring MyDrive Connect back to life...

    Hello,
    Firt of all, Try to log out of MyDrive Connect, then
    After-that, restart the PC or Laptop via the menu entry "Restart" and then log back into mydrive connect.
