@robert-handyside If you have a TomTom ‘MyDrive’ account choose ‘Save as’ and then select ‘TomTom MyDrive beta’ you’ll be asked to sign into your ‘MyDrive’ account and the the route will be on your TomTom wirelessly via the cloud. No need to plug in.

I live on the coast of North Devon between Exmoor and Dartmoor National Parks. This is a beautiful part of the UK and I and my wife Hannah have many places to ride our motorcycles.
We love touring on our motorcycles and use both MRA Navigation and a TomTom Rider 500 for Navigating.
I am a mentor within the MyRoute-app RouteXpert framework and can help out with most of your queries regarding route planning.

RE: Device not found
RE: Add stop time at waypoint
I have never needed to add stop times to a route. If the route travels through a great landscape I will mentally add an extra hour or two to allow for stops to take photo’s. You can’t plan too precisely for a museum stop - the museum might be really good or it could be a pile of poo! So the stop might be 1.5 hours or 10 minutes. What if the restaurant you use for lunch gets your order wrong and the service takes an extra 20 minutes!
Last year in May, I lead a tour of 4 bikes 4500 miles through Europe over 21 days. Every route for every day was meticulously planned using MRA. From fuel and coffee stops to ferries and hotels. We had some issues along the way that cannot be planned for; like a bike breaking down. We dealt with this by adjusting some routes during the tour by logging on to my MRA account and uploading new routes to my TomTom via the cloud.
At no point during this or any of the many other tours that I have lead, would a tool to add stop times to a route have been useful. Experience is the best tool in the box!
RE: Being outside
@Callewaert-Francky I can understand your frustration and I feel for you. The forum was set up as a community forum where ordinary users of MRA can discuss matters and help each other out, this is why you don't see much activity on here from MRA staff.
Logic is telling me that if you can log in to your forum account on a 3rd party computer, then the problem must be some settings within your pc. Have you tried deleting your account and re-joining? Or even opening up a new forum account with a new username and password?
RE: How do you make a copy of a route?
@Gerry-Urban Another way would be just start a new route. On a pc have the first day’s route open and then open the new route in a separate tab on your browser, it’s then easy to flick back and forward between the tabs to compare them.
Or, you can copy the street address from the last route point and paste it into the search box of the new route.
