How can I copy 'My places' from my Go 5100 to my new Go Discover?

    Connect your Go Discover to Mydrive with the same credentials as your Go 5100

    Hi @magnifico

    As has been suggested if you log into the same My Drive account it will sync the same MyPlaces. (EDIT see @lochfrass post below) Note however if both units are running and logged into the same My Drive account if you are following a Route and someone sets a route on the other unit then your unit will change to the same route and you may not notice.. The resolution to this is t log out of My Drive on one or both of the units to prevent this happening and only logging in when you need to sync data.

    That happens not with the Discover devices.
    It happens only on the Nav4 and Prato WIFI devices. So there should be no problem with Discover and Go 5100 in terms of overlapping routes.

    Hi
    Well, spotted, I didn't realize the 'NAV4 & Previous Wi-Fi devices' didn't cross communicate/sync the route with the latest 'GO Discover & Expert'...
    BUT be aware....
    It seems if you plan a route using the 'Mydrive Web Route planner' or the 'Smartphone MyDrive App'....
    The route WILL cross communicate/sync the route across all of the NAV4 & Previous Wi-Fi and the latest GO Discover & Expert devices....

    The fix... Logging out of MyDrive on one or more devices...
    I maintain several devices by simply logging in/out of MyDrive
    I use a single password across all the devices... You only need to enter the password, the device remembers the email address
    Most of the time on the individual devices I am out logged of MyDrive and only log in to sync data as required, then log out again

    Note: logging out of MyDrive on the device does not stop the device receiving Tomtom Traffic info

    Stay Safe... ATB YFM
