My TomTom changes to MyDrive.

From tomorrow or Tuesday here in the UK TT will be serving up MyDrive for the following units. GO 800 / 1000 / 2000 / Via / Start 20 / 60 series, and the new GO 400 / 500 / 600 / 5000 / 6000 series.

You can find out more about MyDrive on the TT site : http://discussions.tomtom.com/t5/GO-400-500-600-5000-6000/MyTomTom-becomes-MyDrive/td-p/634102

GRRR. Another Home - my poor computer will have a fit- I have Home for GO520 and GO550, Home for Carminat, MyTomTom for Renault R-Link (albeit called R-Link Toolbox) and here comes a replacement for MyTomTom for GO1005. As if I collect rubbish software!

There was a survey from TT some time back, and I remember saying that MyTomtom problems were putting me off getting a new device. Maybe MyDrive is better? All they have to do now is provide access for third party POIs, vastly improve their search engine, and update software for Gox000 to provide a more reliable HD connection.

That should be easy enough to realise' their software designers know how to do it as they have done it before Rolling Eyes

Yes, why does it have to be pointed out to them? It's basic stuff.....

But why do you always have to wait until 'time will tell' with TT stuff. Why don't they get it right first time. (Further comments coming later in a later version of cynicism Very Happy )

Personally I refuse to put TomTom software directly on my PC - it goes onto a virtual machine so I don't have it (or other similar occasional use software) messing up USB drivers resulting in chance of Windows USB drivers giving grief (last time needed rebuild)

Why don't you try the optimistic approach for a change - I've tried both (The Jury is out) Idea

Connected my 1005 tonight and it updated three items, but what was updated? Also it said my TT European speed camaras needed renewing, rubbish.

There is a bug in the MyDrive software that says SC need renewing when they don't.

As for the other updates, did you click on the 'more info' link to see exactly what was being offered? It is under the 'update' button.

No, I just connected and didn't see on the first update. I will have to look a little harder next time.
