TomTom Vio doesn't support the technologies provided by MyDrive app / MyDrive Connect and/or MyDrive website at the moment. To connect to Vio device you have to download a dedicated TomTom Vio app from App Store or Google Play. The application will contain instructions to connect your device. You can find direct links to the app stores here: https://www.tomtom.com/en_gb/vioapp/
Thank you very much for your quick response. As I can update the firmware of my VIO where possible, by App ??

When firmware update for your Vio device is available, the app will download it automatically and update the device over the air after the connection. You won't have to connect Vio to your PC or do something like that, except maybe in some force-majeure event.
Muchas gracias !. Y por cierto, VIO IS FANTASTIC !!!!!!!!!!

That's so frustrating. I have all my favorites in MyDrive, and I use them on my Android phone with the app GO MOBILE, and now I just bought TOMTOM VIO and it comes up that I can't just sync My Places with this VIO app. So when I use my motorbike I'm gonna have to write again every destination, or take the time to copy more than 60 favorites manually. This seems so anachronistic to me. It's true I didn't check this issue before buying, but I guess it's something reasonable to take for granted nowadays.
I'm so disappointed I think I'm going to return the product.

Do you plan to add this functionality to the app?

Also why the IOS app has fewer option in route planning than the android one. I have to phones but i'm forced to use the android app. (eg: in IOS you cannot set to avoid a part of the route or to add an intermediary stopping point)
I also find frustrating not to be able to load favourite tracks to the VIO when using IOS app. Relly hope TOM TOM will solution this limitation.
+1. Seems very odd that vio doesn't work with mydrive. Really hope they sort this out with an update soon.
I would like to ask TomTom developers to add support for Mydrive to VIO app too.
Honestly it doesn't make sense to make such a splendid product as the VIO and leave out basic integration to MyDrive in the smartphone app. I could have checked before I bought the VIO product, but for some reason I didn't and now I consider return or re-sell the product. What a shame...

Please add the possibility to import and sync MyRoutes from MyDrive with VIO.
Also tracepoints to iOS version, thanks!

Hi.

Has Tomtom now noticed we are no longer in the 1980's and made the mydrive site and the tomtom go app compatible with the VIO, or the mydrive site compatible with the VIO app? Love the site, love the tomtom go app, would like to try the VIO, but not if that means manually redoing my places, and not being able to import a GPX and see it on the VIO. The above entrys seem to indicate so 😞
