Question about HP iPAQ hw6510 Mobile Messenger Smartphone
Ive got the above model which ive installed tomtom navigation 6 (maps on sd)
when i start up there is'nt a problem but then after 1 hour the screen flashes and you can see gps navigation(default hp programme ) and then the start menu tries to load(windows icon in middle of screen) Then the whole unit freeses up completely freeses up - I f I leave it though for another hour sometimes it comes back - howver you can still notice that the gps is running in the background (still receive spoken directions/speed camera warnings
The only other way is to exit from the unit by using the top switch, reboot and then stop the gps navigation prompt via the runing programmes page and then re-boot into tomtom- Ive contacted tomtom who cant seem to resolve the issue from their side and who suggest that hp are best placed to resolve this annoying occurance
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This annoying thing normaly occurs when the update is out of date.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 If it is blue the update is good, grey means it is out of date.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.
