[LUG] TomTom Start 60 / MyDriveConnect and Linux.


Hi All,

In Windows I use the TomTom MyDriveConnect software to update my TomTom Start 60 as I have free updates for life (yes well we'll see what their definition of 'life' is, but anyway). The problem is the MDC software won't work under WINE and despite the fact you can of course log into the website in Firefox as you can in Windows, it won't detect the device to allow updates as it requires MDC to work. You can't download the updates as you used to be able to do and then just copy them to the SD card because this one doesn't have an SD card.. it's all onboard memory and they won't let you just download the files anyway. TomTom's Customer Service are conspicuous by their absence to all requests on the forums - including their own website support - to develop MDC for Linux.

Linux distro: Mint 16
WINE error info - I haven't included the entire stack dump as I didn't think it would help:

Unhandled exception: unimplemented function KERNEL32.dll.SetVolumeMountPointW called in 32-bit code (0x7b83ac5f).

System information:
    Wine build: wine-1.4.1
    Platform: i386 (WOW64)
    Host system: Linux
    Host version: 3.8.0-34-generic

Any suggestions gratefully received.
