Hi have bought tomtom navigator 6 for my ipaq 6515. software seems fine but the unit is not receiving any gps signals. Have read that changing settings to com7 daub rate 57600 should help. How is this done?

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
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.
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This annoying thing normaly occurs when the update is out of date.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 If it is blue the update is good, grey means it is out of date.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.
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.
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. (www.tomtom.com -> support).
I haven't checked it out myself though.
There is a guide available on how to configure your non-tomtom-bt GPS mouse.
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.
You may need to use the hard reset to make the quick gps connection working. but you will lost all ur program or data, including smart nav or tom tom. if you ready want to use the hard reset, remember to download smart nav or tomtom program. or you will end out no map in your system. good luck
