    MyDrive Connect downloads and installs the map on your device.

    Note: As long as there is enough space in the internal memory of your navigation device, MyDrive Connect installs your map in that memory. If there is not enough space in the internal memory, MyDrive Connect lets you create free space in the internal memory or, if available, use a memory card installed in your device.

    During the download and installation, MyDrive Connect shows the progress of the two operations: download to the computer and then installation on the navigation device.


    Important: Do not disconnect your navigation device. Your navigation device will display a message to say when it is safe to disconnect it.

    Once the installation is complete, you will see the message YOU'RE READY TO GO! in MyDrive Connect. Click the My Content button to return to the MY CONTENT page.

  7. When you see the message on your navigation device that the installation has completed, disconnect your navigation device from your computer.
  8. You can now use your navigation device with the installed map.

    Note: If you have installed a map of a new region, you have to switch maps on your navigation device to use that map. For more information, see How do I switch between the maps installed on my device?
