I have recently had a replacement Rider 550 to which I have updated the European maps. The World Maps were missing which was resolved by Vikram and his team, thank you.

After doing the re-set I now have full functionality with the exception that the device is no longer seen in MyDrive Connect. I have tried to 'add a device' and it tells me to ensure I am logged on to 'MyDrive' on the 550 then proceed to connect the device to the PC. I have done this and hit 'Continue' however it just goes back to the instruction screen to log on to MyDrive on the 550!

I am favouring the cable update method of updating the unit going forward via MyDrive as it is certainly faster and perhaps more stable, hence why I am trying to resolve this issue.

Any ideas?

    Hi @Mathew550

    Rather than do anything more lets see if @VikramK can do it for you or advise you what to do.

    He should be back on the forum on Monday.
