You can update your device using Wi-Fi. If you don’t have a Wi-Fi connection click here to see the steps describing how to update your device using your computer.
Your device can be updated using Wi-Fi without the need to connect to a computer. It remembers previously connected Wi-Fi networks in order to continue to keep your device up to date when you are in range of that network.
Before you begin, make sure that you have access to an unrestricted Wi-Fi network, such as a personal home network. Please be aware that updating over a public Wi-Fi network, such as in an airport or hotel is not recommended due to the download speeds required to update the device.
Whilst updating over Wi-Fi, we recommend that you remain connected to a power supply, using the USB cable supplied with your device.
To connect to a Wi-Fi network, switch on your device and do the following:
The available Wi-Fi networks around you are listed. Select the network you want to use.
Depending on the settings of the network you’re connecting to, you may need to enter a username and password before continuing.
It may take a few moments for your device to connect to Wi-Fi. If it takes too long, please check the credentials you are using to connect to the network such as the username and password.
Once your device has successfully connected to the Wi-Fi network, you see the status Connected under the name (SSID) of the Wi-Fi network.
Your device updates you with a notification when there are updates available to download, and when you remove the device from the windscreen mount. Wi-Fi is not required to see these update notifications.
If you don’t have access to any Wi-Fi network or your Wi-Fi network is slow or not stable, click here to see the steps about updating your device using your computer.
Once you’ve connected to Wi-Fi, you need to log in using a TomTom account. This ensures that the device is identified on our systems and that the correct updates are offered to you.
If you already have a TomTom account, you can log in with those existing details. If you don’t have a TomTom account, you can create one on the device.
You can either log in here, or create an account.
Once you’ve logged in with a TomTom account, you’re ready to check for updates! Remember to connect your device to a power supply whilst downloading over Wi-Fi so that it has enough power to continue the update.
To update over Wi-Fi, do the following:
Any new updates are offered to you here. These updates can include software updates, map updates, speed camera updates, or map share corrections.
If you don’t want to install an offered item, use the toggle slider next to the item.
If you don’t have access to a Wi-Fi network or your Wi-Fi network is slow or not stable, then connecting to a computer with access to the internet may be a better option for you. To do this, you need to install MyDrive Connect.
If you don’t have MyDrive Connect installed, you can see how to install it in our FAQ: Installing MyDrive Connect.
Once you have MyDrive Connect installed and open, connect your device to your computer using the USB cable. The internet connection will then be used by your device through MyDrive Connect. Now follow these steps:
