GPS on hp6515

Hi guys


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

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This annoying thing normaly occurs when the update is out of date.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 If it is blue the update is good, grey means it is out of date.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

Sat Nav, Online mapping not good

Check out the Terracrosser software, this uses Google maps but allows you to use downloaded maps. Terracrosser works on my S620 although I haven't been able to get my BT GPS unit to function properly with any mapping software. I have tried setting it to COM 6 as previously suggested.

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

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!

Dell Axim 5 + TomTom navigator GPS ?

for those in the States at least, the economics. Many new vehicles here come with GPS and mapping options today for a nominal amount. I was also looking at this Garmin portable. I am not familiar with what is available in Europe though, I know the cellular technology is far ahead of the States. I just thought I would throw this out there. Good luck with your efforts.

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!

There a two things you must do. Update the TT5 software to TT 5.1. uk.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=3361 ... and then you need to buy the complete maps for TT NAVIGATOR 5. They are priced at 199 Euro but with the voucher you get a 70 Euro discount. Then it is just installing the new maps and be on your way.
