  1. In the past month my Go 520 cannot find the GPS signal for extended periods of time. This cost me two missed exits and nearly an hours time yesterday. What gives? My software is up to date and there is a clear path to the sky.

  3. Hi all, new user here.

    Today, after 2 days of reading and struggling, I called TT Customer support in an attempt to solve the "OEPS…", problem not able to connect my new GO5200 WiFi to the TT Servers during setup.

    Together with a very friendly lady, we went through all Soft- and Hard Reset drills, connecting and disconnecting WiFi etc, to no avail.

    My GO5200 would not connect to the firmware/maps/etc servers.

    Funny thing was, that with the exact same User-id/password, I could successfully sign on to "My Drive Connect" on my Laptop and to any TomTom URL she directed me to.

    As a last resort, she reset my Registration Password to something simple.

    Lo and behold, that did the trick and I could logon to MyDrive on the GO5200 as well as Mydrive Connect on the PC.!

    I think this particular problem is caused by the GO5200 software.

    The password I (succesfully) used on my TomTom Mydrive Connect PC software (I use TomTom Mydrive Connect for my wife's TomTom device) was a rather complex password.

    It consisted of 13 characters, of which 2 numerals, one Capital letter and an Ampersand (&).

    All these are valid characters according to the examples offered on the GO5200 screen, but apparently the GO5200 does not transmit such complex passwords as typed.

    After Customer Support reset the password to something simple, it worked instantly.

    Hope this helps someone.

  4. I have a Tom Tom Truck Nav 6000. I purchased Euro Live Traffic. After a month I have nothing on my Nav. Soft reset. Factory reset. Don’t use a touch screen lap top. Use a PC. Still won’t load, but the help desk says it’s on my device. I’m ready to put a hammer through the thing. What a waste of money. I’m gonna bin the sod and try Snooper
