Why does it take so long to synch?


My Garmin synch s to my phone in around 2 to 3 seconds and has never failed no matter the update/ firmware / app version.. ...my Tom Tom takes around 30 to 40 minutes to synch ...in the same conditions (Wi-Fi connection / android etc) the progress bar counts down by 1 % every 30 seconds or so...what's going wrong with this?

What's wrong? Nothing, it is just the way TomTom programmed it. You are lucky you can connect via BT at all. It should not take 30-40 minutes, maybe 1-2 minutes. Try a factory rest and see if that helps. You can also sync by computer which takes seconds.

I hope this helps answer your question. If so, please mark it as a solution so others can look for it if they have the same question.

Factory reset it is not solution, but does not help 😞

It it upload scripts problem. You have to wait until the operation was successful.
