    I had this same problem, but now I've resolved that, it says it's connected to my blackberry, but then almost immediately looses it - it says "No answer from phone, please check your mobile phone". Can you help pls?!

On your Blackberry (BB), make sure you have set your blue-tooth properties to show Yes for "Discoverable", then go through the TomTom (TT) to find a phone. Trying to find the TT with the BB will not work.

Once the TT finds the BB, the BB will ask for a code - enter 0000. Once the TT is successfully added to your BB device list, highlight the TT and check device properties - set to trusted.

This should get you there.

I have paired my blackberry with my tomtom go 930 the phones says paired but the tom tom can't seem to find the phone?


I detest cell phones, but here's how I got my wife's BB8100 and BB8800 to connect to my GO930:
1) Press the button with 7 dots in a circular pattern (Menu?);
2) Click "Options";
3) Click "Bluetooth";
4) Click "TomTom GO 930" (yours may differ);
5) Click "Full Menu";
6) Click "Options";
7) Change "Discoverable" to "Yes";
8) Press the button with the curved arrow (Return?);
9) Click "Save";
10) Click the curved-arrow button until the menus are gone.
The TomTom should now be able to connect to the BB.

Had to do something similar on the iPhone 4 before it could connect (haven't found a "Trust" option yet).

Problems pairing blacberry bold to tom tom 510


First check tomtom site if the phone is compatible, not all are.
If so enable blue tooth on both items and detectable as well
Power up phone and select a feature with bluetooth update on your tomtom. In most cases it finds the phone, commenes a check out of its capabilities and will tell you the result. Could be negative

Tomtom 930 does not find Iphone 3g bluetooth for connection.


The following has worked for me FLAWLESSLY :

1) Remove any old "pairing information" that you may have both on the iPhone and on the TomTom - both should be "clean" not knowing about each other..

2) Put iPhone into airplane mode.

3) Go to settings, and turn on Bluetooth

4) Do the regular "search for bluetooth device" and pair the two
devices

5) Turn off airplane mode

After I did this, I have never had a problem with iPhone 3GS / Tomtom - they find each other now every time, and all is happy..

Phone ask for passkey to connect bluetooth


This is more an issue with your phone service provider than it is with the Go 730. You may have previously set a password for your phone's Bluetooth feature. If you can't remember it, you should be able to troubleshoot over the phone with your service providor's customer service, or just take it into a store to get the info back. Once that's fixed, you should be able to pair with your 730 without a problem

Tomtom xls


my TT says "unable to set up your wireless data connection. Do you want to try another phone model or do you want to set up your wireless data manually?" Since it will not allow me to automatically set up connection, how do I do it manually?

BLUETOOTH CONNECTION PROBLEMS


Well, according to THIS, the Blackberry 8100 can only be used for hands free calling with a Go920...

That said, it shlould be possible to establish a connection between the two...

Let the Go find the phone, not other way around...
It can take a LONG time searching for the phone, and it may not be able to establish a connection automatically..

If so, try to set it up manually, it will ask for that if it fails...
