    Default Tom Tom Go Live 1000 (MyDrive Connect) - accessing the internal storage?

    Hello,

    I recently updated the maps on my old Tom Tom Go 520 which was a fairly straightfoward process as I once connected to my PC I could see it as storage device under Windows, transfer files etc.

    After this success I thought I'd try the same with my Tom Tom Go Live 1000. I expected this to be a similar process but whilst it connects fine, updates etc in the MyDrive Connect app I can't see the internal storage under Windows (this model doesn't take a SD card either). I can see, however, that it shows as a network adaptor.

    Could someone be kind and save me a bit of headscratching as to how the process works for transferring files to it as the guides I've read don't seem to refer to this?

    Thanks muchly in advance!

    Thanks for your reply.

    Bummer but interesting. I wonder if that was done to counter piracy?

    Really pleased I didn't toss my trusty 520 now!

    I think that WAS one of the main reasons they changed things regarding server interface etc as we had all the old stuff well-sorted!
