Pro 5150 not updating maps

I have a Pro5150 Truckers satnav and recently connected it to MyDrive to update the maps. After 2hrs plus, it said it was up to date, but when I tried to find an address, it couldn't locate it. I also have a Rider 400 and put the postcode in that one and it found it.

I have also got a message on the Pro5150 which reads 'Traffic - An error occurred on the TomTom server. Please try again' So I am not getting details of any traffic problems. Could you advise

From the general chat on this user forum, it seems as if the European Traffic server is down and has been since late Friday afternoon.

With regards to your map update, did you do a soft reset after the installation? As this often helps to get the file system aligned
Thanks for that.
No I didn't - how would I do that?

After each up date to do a soft reset, you will loose nothing, it is like rebooting your computer and reloads all the new files from an update.

A soft reset :- with your device charged for at least 2Hrs "OR" have the device plugged into a power supply; press and hold your on/off button until you hear a drum-roll sound (or the TomTom hands symbol appears) then release the on/off button.
Hi - Have tried this, and unfortunately it hasn't made any difference.

In that case contact Customer Services to sort this out and maybe rest your device's SIM
