Coud be a great app if…!
Some of the glitches this app previously displayed have been ironed out. But there is still a major problem when trying to plan or edit routes.
The place labels (Town Names) appear far too late on the map when zooming. This is makes detailed route planning much more difficult, as you have to zoom in far too much before the names appear which results in a loss of the overview. Often street names appear before it is clear what town or village they belong to. It is the same problem on mobile devices and on the browser based web app. Why is it so hard to improve the detailing to a degree where you can actually see where you are on the map? Most other route planning apps don’t have that problem. Please fix this!
There is no import function on the iOs app to import a GPX file from Files (DropBox, iCloud, Goodreader, etc.).

Locking Up and Inconsistent Connection - Currently Useless
The idea of the Tomtom ecosystem sounds great and when it works, the system works well. However, the latest update appears to have made problems worse with iOS 13 and the traffic update is next to useless as the MyDrive app locks up after a few miles/couple of minutes. After a lengthy exchange with Support, they acknowledged that they had had lots of problem reports concerning the app and ‘urgent’ work was already underway. No update so far but I am surprised that the developer has not resolved this problem before the release of iOS 13; this does not appear to be a new issue! Too many ‘sticking plasters’ it would seem instead of starting from scratch. Additionally, all my routes have been wiped by the app for some unknown reason! I also cannot import GPX files into the app to replace the files that were wiped and I keep getting an error message when trying to access My Routes. I have lost count the number of times I have had to delete the app and re-install MyDrive and re-connect to my Rider 550. The problems still continue despite the steps taken and the guidance on the TomTom website.
I am very disappointed as the reason I chose the Rider 550 was for this connectivity but this functionality is currently not available. I hope that I have not made a wrong decision with coming back to TomTom from their main competition. This needs to be resolved ASAP.
TomTom apps have become so rubbish
After having a number of tomtom go sat navs I bought a TomTom Rider 1 and that was great for a number of years then it simply stopped working so I bought a Rider 2 and it has served me well for many years. Just lately I heard of the Rider 550 with live lifetime maps and lifetime speed cameras (info is totally reliant on using my phone linked to TomTom MyDrive so I blew £500 on the upgrade. Thats where this app comes in, on its own works great on the phone but when trying to connect device it fails badly I deleted app and reinstalled but same again I cannot load trips or devised routes the app is real rubbish and will not perform as described.
I am deleting the app and returning my new Rider 550 and going back to my old none internet connected Rider 2 which is much better and doesn’t cost £500.
And for those interested in the TomTom 550 advertising lifetime maps and speed cameras. If you subscribe as I did and it says as mine does ‘subscriptions Lifetime’ Just press on the little square box at the top right on the screen when in menu mode you will find your lifetime subscription only lasts for five (5) years from purchase- to me thats not lifetime.
Overall everything to do with latest TomTom are rubbish. Either buy an older one not reliant on internet or by a Garmin because their lifetime maps are really lifetime (well as long as they supply updates for each model)
Like I said the app is also crap.

Hi there Keo
Sorry to hear that you have returned your device and are no longer using the MyDrive app. It sounds like you've had a frustrating time.
Just so you know, when we assign maps, there needs to be an end date in order for the device to function. So as standard we put either 5 years or 10 years on devices. If the unit is still functioning and supported after this time, then we can extend that subscription.
