You have to have tethering then it will work, I have a 8300 and until I got tethering it wouldn't work, you still have to purchase the traffic plan for around $59 a year.

Check your phine and GPS settins, make sure they are both in auto connect mode also once conneterd make sure your phone is set for Trusted connection.

Give that a try as I had the same problem with my Blackberry and this fixed it.

Wireless data transfer from blackberry 8300 to tomtom 720, bluethooth connect, but will not do data transfer, I know phone is not on compatible list, does this mean a new either or?

Okay. First of all there is a solution, however very complicated and it may brick (make your equipment unusuable due to software corruption). BUT if you are down, here is how you'd go about it:

First things first, you want to know why the tom tom and your crackberry are not communicating correctly. This is because they are operating on different sets of protocols, the tomtom roles on Bluetooth (BT) 2.01a while the blackberry uses BT 2.0. That 1a is tomtom's way of saying "haha ******, buy another phone, thats on our list." Why they'd urge such things, who knows the motifs. It may most likely be that these companies have some kind of affiliation and are trying to increase revenues with bs marketing. Regardless it is a thrifty idea. So the solution:

First of all, I hope your on t-mobile or at&t, because otherwise you wont be able to do it. There are sim card hacks that are very easy to do and cheap to buy. Hacking through USB communications port becomes a little tougher. Either way you want to search the for the sim software called "mogul49." There are others but THIS hacks blackberries with the quickness (5-10 minutes instead of 1hour and possible bricking), and rarely ever bricks your phone. There are tons of other softwares discussed, and they may do the job (maybe not), but mogul49 is the way. Once you have that, you use it to open and enter into the file system on the blackberry, goto the \\bt\sys directory and replace the .bat file with the 2.01a .bat file. You can find this by searching up bluetooth protocol for 2.01a on google, and possible in the crackberry forums if they still have it.

Remember to always backup anything and everything, BEFORE you start any of this. Other than that Good Luck!

Hi There,

The phone you are trying to connect are not listed in this list here
one thing you can do, look for a phone in that list, if it does not connect to your tomtom then there could be an issue with your tomtom bluetooth.

if it was connecting before and you updated to version 8.300 then again it may be the application version that can cause the issue.
