  1. Go to www.tomtom.com/mydrive, then click Download for Windows and follow the instructions to install the latest version of MyDrive Connect.
  2. Start MyDrive Connect.

If you encounter the following warning, this means that your Windows XP installation is missing a certificate. You can either ignore the warning by clicking Yes each time you start MyDrive Connect or install the certificate manually as explained below.

Installing the certificate manually

  1. Close MyDrive Connect by clicking and then Quit.
  2. Open Internet Explorer* and go to www.entrust.net/
  3. If you can access the website, it means that the certificate was downloaded and installed on your Windows XP computer successfully.

  4. Start MyDrive Connect.
  5. You should be able to use MyDrive Connect as normal.
