TomTom Nav5 problem: Arm Read memory allocation error

TomTom 5.12 is driving me crazy!! I initially installed it to the LD partition but kept getting 'Armcode error' unless I did a soft reset before starting Nav. TomTom tech support said the problem was due to the fact that non-SD card installation wasn't supported & that I needed 5-9 MB of free internal memory. I subsequently reinstalled Nav to teh SD card & opened up 12MB of internal memory but now I am getting "Arm Read: could not allocate memory" error messages when I try to run Nav. I am assuming that the LD's internal memory isn't the same as the "program memory" (dynamic heap??)--is there a way to free up more of the latter?

Actually, if you are using Navigator 5, and you install it on a SD card on the LifeDrive it works fine. I have been using mine since Navigator 5 has been released.

Re: TomTom Nav5 problem: Arm Read memory allocation error...

I don't know what it is with those brits but I think they hate us here in the America's. I have TomTom Nav 4 on my wife's T3 and had problems with instillation but could not get support (real person) from tomtom. Did you buy the Nav 5 from Palm's website? I called them and they said that they were making one "JUST" for the LD but didn't know how long that was going to take. If anything if you did buy it from Palm you should try calling them and see if they can help you with it.

If you do not have a memory card in the port then that is where you will need to insert one.
If you have a memory card installed then it has been formatted and the TOMTOM cannot read the format try removing the card and try the card on another device to rule out defective card then replace if it is not working on the other device. If it is working on the other devise try another memory card and do not format the card or erase the boot up software to make room for more information,

Sounds a little like I may have done something like that myself from the way this was answered.

TomTom Go 920 fails to connect to Sony Ericsson C902 for internet connection


I phoned tomtom help line, they sent me a download by email which i ran on the tomtom which wipes the flash memory clean. Then did a download of latest tomtom operating system form tomtom Home software. When i tried to setup wireless data connection i couldnt believe how quick and easy it done it and now works amazing fast to find traffic updates in secs !! They told me that if you have used the tomtom with a few phones and changed a lot of settings the flash memory gets full and thats what made it stuggle to connect and was slow. Im so pleased it was driving me mad !! Hope you resolve urs the same. The number is 08451610009 Darren.

Dead LifeDrive


I would guess you bought a dud micro drive or its been cleaned off. You could try a hard reset and see if it fixes itself. Perhaps the fellow cleaned off his information but hopefully he left the restore partition alone. You can rebuild that if you extract the files from the 2.0 upgrade and so on. There are a few tutorials on how and what to do on some of the hardcore LD sites.

Hopefully you didn't harm the board itself with a static discharge. I've seen a few guys do the swap and end up with a dead LD but usually they don't see anything at all.

Lost files - due to soft reset?


just check your PalmOne folder, see if anything there, i.e., : C:\Program Files\palmOne\\Internal Drive Backup *********************** well, a hard reset should be able to restore to LD new-out-of-the-box state, if you don't need to save any corrupted files in LD drive... But if they are something really important, what you can do is to copy whatever files out to a PC (i.e., via drive mode on a PC), and see if you can recover it with data recovery apps, or better yet, do it straight on the LD drive - although the chance of success is slim. What you described on previous post, sounds like the FAT table has messed up, and seems very similar to a PC HDD failure.

Blazer Crashing on College Campus Wi-Fi


My initial reaction is that that does not look like a network error at all... have you tried loading the page on a different network? Have you tried loading a different page on the campus network? Errors tend to percolate through the system in strange ways, and it is still possible that a network problem is causing this, but network errors tend to look like "no DNS server," "web site not found," etc.
