How do I update my TomTom with MyDrive Connect?

By keeping your TomTom up to date, you'll make sure the most recent maps and software will have been installed. To do this, it's important to update your navigation system regularly. You install updates by connecting your TomTom to your computer. Apart from a USB cable, you'll need the MyDrive Connect program for this. In this article, we'll explain how MyDrive Connect works.

Updating your TomTom

Step 1: Install MyDrive Connect. Go to: https://www.tomtom.com/nl_nl/mydrive-connect/. From this site, download and install MyDrive Connect.

Step 2: Connect your TomTom to your computer. Once MyDrive is installed, connect your TomTom to your computer with the included USB cable.

Step 3: Log in to MyDrive Connect. In the top window that will now appear, you'll be asked to log in. Log in here with your TomTom account.* If you don't have a TomTom account yet, you can create one in the 'Don't have an account yet?' window.

Step 4: Check if your TomTom is connected to your computer. On the screen that will now appear in MyDrive Connect, you'll see if your TomTom is connected to your computer under the heading 'My navigation system'. When there's a connection, it will say 'Connected' and when there is none, it will say 'Not connected'.

Step 5: Check if there are updates. Under 'My navigation system', you can also check if there are any updates, and how many there are. If there are updates, follow these steps:

  • Click 'View Updates'
  • Then, click 'Update selection'
  • If you agree to install the updates, click 'Agree and Install'

Step 6: Downloading and installing the updates A screen will now appear where you'll be able to see how long downloading will take and what percentage of updates has been downloaded. Once the updates have been downloaded, they will be installed. The system will then show long installation will take as well. During updating, it's important not to disconnect your TomTom.

Step 7: The updates have been installed. Once the updates are installed, your navigation system is all up to date again and your TomTom will be ready for your next trip.
