Tom Tom navagation files out of place

Try putting the files like this:
In My Device/iPAQ File Store/iPAQ GPS, put the folder with your country name (in my case it says Australia), the "Navigator" folder and the "GPS" and "Map ID" files.
In My Device/My Documents/Tom Tom you should have a file thats called something like "Australia-3bc66a12" (will be different for other countries), and another called "TTToday" and any POI files you've created.
See how that goes. Otherwise, you may be able to reinstall TomTom software from the original disk if you have it. Any map upgrades you've bought will need to be reloaded from TomTom Home

HW6515d Ipaq Sound with TomTom Sat NAv

The ipaq 6515 has a microswitch that will turn off the pda if the battery cover is removed. When you remove the cover and try to turn it on even with the external power supply plugged in, the red led will light up.

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This annoying thing normaly occurs when the update is out of date.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 If it is blue the update is good, grey means it is out of date.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.

IPAQ hw6515 reboots by itself

I had same problem.
Culprint was in the back cover.

Above SIM holder is a hidden switch what will connect the backup battery when the main battery is removed.
Small hook (high up) in the cover will trigger the switch. When cover get loose the switch will change it's position.

I put small piece of shrinking tube in it what will extend it 0.5 mm. That did the trick. No more unscheduled reboots.

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.

New ROM update - navigation issues

I had the same problem. By turning of the POI (Points Of Interest) it no longer crashed. There is also and update for tomtom, version 5.10. ( -> support). I haven't checked it out myself though. There is a guide available on how to configure your non-tomtom-bt GPS mouse. ated=1119370927&p_sid=Bs6i7vLh&p_lva=&p_sp=cF9zcmNoPSZwX3NvcnRfYn k9JnBfZ3JpZHNvcnQ9JnBfcm93X2NudD0zMzgmcF9wcm9kcz0mcF9jYXRzPSZ wX3B2PSZwX2N2PSZwX3BhZ2U9MQ**&p_li=&p_topview=1 good luck!

Do you have sufficient memory on your iPAQ? Check your memory settings, also check running programs tab, maybe you have too many programs still running in the background causing the latency. Try a soft reset (stops all running programs in the background) or end task on them, then see if it still lags.
