TomTom updates are free for every user. However, the process of updating the software depends on the program used to initiate the updates. The TomTom website offers step-by-step procedures for devices using both TomTom HOME and MyDrive Connect, as of June 2015.
A user must have either TomTom HOME or MyDrive Connect installed in a computer to update TomTom, and it is advisable to back up a device before starting the update. The user connects his navigation device to a computer and switches it on; the TomTom then starts automatically and checks for available updates. MyDrive Connect requires the user to log in to his account to complete updates.
