None of these fixes worked for me and my GO 5000 was about to head for the bin in sheer frustration. However, I found a fix that worked for me.1. Go to System Preferences>Network with TomTom MyDrive Connect Running2. Look for the TomTom Go entry which will be red. Highlight and delete. You will be asked if you want it to reappear at restart or something similar. Say no. A second copy of the TomTom GO entry appeared. Do the same with that and keep on doing it until there is no TomTom GO entry in the list.3. Close TomTom MyDrive Connect, then reopen it.4 Plug in your TomTom GO5. You will be asked if omTom MyDrive Connect can make changes. Allow this and you should see the network light go orange and the TomTom will connect with your Mac. Perversely, the network connection says: TomTom GO 5000 has a self-assigned IP address and will not be able to connect to the Internet. Of course, having said this, it now connects to the internet. Very poor network handling by the TomTom software
On another note, now that i am able to update, it seems that i am now being offered "paid" map-updating for a product that had "free map updates for life" on the box when i bought it. Shoddy keeping of their promise also then?
