Re: hp ipaq6515

Com 7 and 57600 are the correct settings on a HP 6515. Mayke sure you use the NMAE type device when selecting the GPS type. With 5.x release of Tomtom there was a config file that you could delete and therefore be able to reconfigure al lthe GPS settings though I think with 6 you can reconfigure via the GPS option under preferences

Contact TomTom, they have been able to help me out by choosing the right settings. Good luck. And don't forget your charge, 'cause TomTom will eat your battery quickly.

Hye! here's how you can take care of this issue: Dowload google maps from the web (for windows mobile) & install it on your diamond. In order to use GPS on this phone, your internet/gprs connection must be functional; without netwrok connectivity you cant use GPS on this device as it does not have the map interface on its chip (& cant be loaded later too). It just has a light GPS transceiver which in presence of a mapping software (such as google maps) can show your position on the globe & in some countires can also navigate you. After installing google maps, make sure your internet connectivity is on and then work with google maps 'USE GPS' & 'My location' or 'Navigate' functions ... enjoy!

Have you made sure that the TomTom software is actually compatible with your PDA?

GPS on hp6515

Firstly the GPS on this model is not a standard GPS, it uses AGPS which requires an update to be performed either ever 2 or 10 days, depending on the rom version of the ipaq.

This annoying thing normaly occurs when the update is out of date. On the home screen, in the bottom right hand corner, you will see a circular icon with grid lines and a dot in it. If it is blue the update is good, grey means it is out of date.

There are several ways to update this, the easiest being having your iPaq connected to active sync, then tapping the above icon, tapping download now.

However, if you have recently performed a soft reset, you will need to perform a hard reset to resolve the issue (this will wipe all your data so back up first!!!) Then re-install tomtom and try again.

E570 with GPS and Navi

Personally I have not GPS on my PDA but there is no reason that it should not work properly. The only thing is that you should pay attention on several things. Check by software producer if the software is compatible to your PDA. Please also be careful which ports use GPS hardware because your PDA has no USB port just serial port. With another words check all this important things before you buy anything.

TomTom 5 BT mouse: no Connection

A friend of mine uses the same software for his PDA. I have asked him what the problem can be and he told me that some kind of “connection registry” or something like that is very important. Start PDA and start the Bluetooth. Go to Bluetooth symbol and choose BT settings. There must be shown some “magnifying glass”. Click on it and the search will start. All visible objects will be listed in the upper part of window. Mark the GPS and it will be listed in lower part of window. Click on it and start this “connection registry”. After that you can use the navigations software. Go to “GPS status” and there you must put some check mark on some green quadrangle. Sorry I can not explain you exactly what it was but I am sure that in User`s manuals of TomTom you can find a right explanation.

E740 pr3170u-1p052-model? and tomtom 3

As far as I know there is no PPC2003 upgrade. Normally there should not be any problem with TomTom3. If you want try to install a last image Check please Toshiba download site. I have found info that TomTom5 can not be used with Toshiba PDAs. Not yet. Since October that should be possible. Check TomTom web page.
