TomTom GO 510
I installed virtualbox on Ubuntu so I could use MyDrive Connect, as they do not have a Linux version.
It is a bit of a kludge, but it saves having to use another PC, you just need a Windows disk, it does work very well but there are a few points to watch out for.
- Add yourself to the vboxusers group
- logout and login
- Run virtualbox
- Enable the USB controller to use USB 2.0
- Create a new virtual machine
- Select the defaults, the only change I made was to use a dynamic drive.
- I used an old Windows 7 DVD
- Install MyDrive Connect
- If it starts close it down
- Plugin the TomTom directly, using their USB cable
- Right click on the USB icon to enable the TomTom Satnav USB connection, an icon bottom RH of the screen
- Start MyDrive Connect
- Take your time when running MyDrive Connect, don't rush!
- When finished, I suggest deleting all data in /userxxx/AppData/Local/TomTom/cache/ it was c. 6GB on my PC
- Make sure the USB connection for your SatNav is enabled.
