If you use an Apple Computer, decided to use TomTom Rider 550 and therefore plan your routes with e.g. Kurviger.de, then you are at the right place.
As said above, this is my situation and I was frustrated, not much, but by all means too much, and here are some difficulties which I was confronted with (it’s my own honest opinion)
I will add more topics, as soon as I’m too often frustrated about a new specific issue.
If I’m wrong with my analysis or option, please feel free to correct or publish counter explanation.
Many explanation in my summary, are based upon excellent Youtube channels like e.g. Rhönschrat or kurviger.de and many more (list not final)
Use Mydrive or Kurviger.de as the programming tool to create routes.
Mydrive from TomTom does not transfer, in a simple way routes (not tracks), from mydrive running on a Apple computer to the Rider 550.
In fact, you receive a track from Mydrive into your Rider 550 and therefore, many functions on the Rider 550 are not able to be used.
If you decide to change the programmed on the way, Rider 550 does not recalculate the route again.
If you use the Kurviger.de export functionality (use the ITN extension on the data file), you can export and download the data file on your harddisc for further use within TomTom Rider 550. The way how you do this, see e.g. YT video Pässe knacken mit dem TomTom Rider | passknacker.com | TomTom Rider 550 | #228 - YouTube
How can you transfer data from Mac to TomTom Rider 550
The android file transfer software is available via the German newspaper chip.de
Please search and download the software for Mac, programmed and copyright 2017 Google Inc. Version 1.0.12 (1.0.507.1136)
