  • Hi Guys, This short message to let you know that I just installed the latest Europe map 1030.9580 without any issue :-) Cheers, KaDargo
  • Hi @silviomifsud If you have, like myself, purchased your Rider in Switzerland, Germany or Austria (I am in Switzerland), you have received as standard this Tourenfahrer package, and personally I have been unable to get rid of it... I am not a fan when things are imposed to me, but I did not even know about it when I…
  • Indeed it has!! So, below my final report: * Nav 4 update complete * Europe Map installed (full version) * un-necessary Language files removed * 32G SD card inserted and successfully recognised * Extra map installed on the SD card, Success!! * Memory report correct (6.4G available onboard) on both Rider and MDC! * MyDrive…
  • Guys, you are not going to believe this =) <3 =) =) !!! 1. Factory Reset: been there, done that, no thanks... 2. Recovery Mode: ah ah, this one looks new to me, let's try it!! It was at first tricky to type 3 times quickly enough but I finally succeeded, then.... nothing... the MDC windows does come up and say "restoration…
  • Hi All, Wow, so many questions, thanks again for your willingness to help! So, a summary here of my answers: I am using Windows 7 and my USB is a USB 2.0. My antivirus ist Avast Free. I am using the TT original USB cable. I have removed all MY POIs via MyDrive (connected through my smartphone), the only ones that are left…
  • Good morning @VikramK No change, MDC still checking... and no indication of any progress on the Rider either. So I will stop wasting more electricity with no result and wait for your next suggestions :-) KaDargo
  • hi @VikramK No change, MDC still "preparing" for the download... To me, the issue is clearly with the Rider that remains unresponsive, so I think a real hard factory reset can possibly help... I will leave it online for the rest of the night, if tomorrow (as I suspect) there has been no progress I will disconnect it and…
  • Hi @VikramK Another update after 3 hours... The initial download of the update file onto my PC has been completed within minutes. Since then, I get the usual message from MDC that is it checking/verifying whatever... So, as far as I can tell, no change, and I cannot say I am surprised because it really looks as though the…
  • Hi Everyone! Just done the soft reset as suggested, but also removed the additional SD card, just to make sure this one does not get in the way (I had read on a German forum some people reporting update issues linked to the SD card). One first change on MDC is that now it also reports 0M of memory available on the Rider!…
  • Hi @VikramK Thanks for the suggestions. The reason for the multiple pending downloads is the multiple attempts to perform the updates ;-) And whilst I am going to try to your steps, I am skeptical about them because they start with a soft reset which I have done many times, including deleting the MDC cache. And none of the…
  • Hi @DougLap OK, most grateful to you and the rest of the gang for your efforts!! I can't wait to hear what TT has to say :-) Cheers, KaDargo
  • And btw, if that helps, when I connect to MyDrive via Bluetooth on my mobile, I do get live traffic information, so this part at least seems to work properly... Also, the the tab Parameters/System/About, it says it was never connected to MyDrive Connect....
  • Hi @DougLap No, in the example I gave above, I started from the notification that appears on the Rider when you connect it to the PC via USB. This notification says that you can import POIs or routes directly from the PC to the Rider simply by using the Windows explorer. When you click on that note, there is a change of…
  • Good morning @DougLap , No change this morning, I am starting to suspect an issue with the GPS itself... Something else occured to me: If I try to import routes from my PC file explorer onto the GPS, it is impossible because the Rider's 14.4G of memory are full! How does that reconciliate with the info on MDC that says…
  • More than 2.5 hours, still preparing??? Seriously?? For 40M?? I am going to bed now, leaving everything running through the night.... let's see how it looks tomorrow, somehow i have the feeling it will be the same... and still no clue as to where the problem is.... Servers? MDC? Rider? Good night everyone!
  • Hi @LAURE123 and @YamFazMan Many thanks for the very detailed info, whoa... great help from you guys... So, here is an update so far: 1. I have performed both soft reset and device initialization approximately a zillion times, no change... 2. before trying the steps you suggested, I had to deinstall and reinstall MDC…
  • Hi Doug, It is a SanDik Extreme Pro 32G HC I
  • Oh, forgot to add this info... If I want to organise a ride (I have deleted on my previous ones via MyDrive), then I get immediately this error message saying I need more space. When I go into the details of the error message, it says that I have 25.15M of internal memory and that I need at least 400M to be able to import…
  • Hi YFM and thanks for your feedback! I actually do have a 32G Micro SD card installed, so theoretically plenty of space for now... My current Map is Europe 1020.9285, released in October 2018, and the application is version 18.202.0024.311 released December 5, 2018. My device has S/N K3177Kxxx and says available internal…
  • Hi, apologies for the duplicates with other posts, but I have already tried pretty much every step described in those posts, unfortunately to no avail...
