Dell Axim + Tomtom. Routeplanning error

My Tomtom will only find routes within a short distance for example, if I'm only travelling 10 miles it will find me a route with no problems, however if I want to travel further than this it displays 'Error during planning', so I have to break the journey up into several shorter journeys. Very annoying. Have tried resetting both the PDA & GPS reciever several times but still not resolved. Any solution would be much appreciated.

Re: Dell Axim + Tomtom. Routeplanning error

The error during planning is a map error not an OS error. It will give you this warning if you try to nav somewhere that it cant see any way of getting to because there is a gap somewhere en-route. Normally its the last 100 yards or something. The workaround is to nav to an adjoining road or somewhere very close to where you want to end up. Oddly or maybe coincidentally (which I doubt at 60,000 miles per year) I have only had this happen on the new maps.

How do you install downloaded programs on the Dell Axim X30?

Downloaded programs can be installed onto the Dell Axim X30 using Microsoft ActiveSync. Microsoft ActiveSync can be installed onto your computer using the Dell Companion CD which came with your Axim X30.
Once Microsoft ActiveSync is set up on your computer, if the program you downloaded came in an installer file, then double-clicking on the file will start the installation wizard and the software will be automatically transferred to the Axim.
If the program you downloaded did not come as an installer file, then double-clicking it will bring up an error message. In that case, use ActiveSync Explore to copy the program file to the Program Files folder on your Axim.

I have a dell axim x5 and I am trying to use a veo photo traveler

I downloaded the lastest and greatest driver from and now the camera card works in the compact flash slot. Now life can go on as normal. birds will chirp and rain will fall in troubleshooter land because now all has been put right once again, but then again nothing technical works without solving underlying problems so stay alert because nothing lasts forever! OK, stop goofing off and get back to work! 8-)

Loose sync port connector of dell axim x50's cradle and it wont connect anymore in my PC

It's not the cradle that's the problem. The problem is internal... a short in the **** poor wiring creating a short circuit. The internal wires need to be re-soldered.
Dell ditched the PDA line because it could not support it's JUNK. These PDAs were designed to break.

Can I use Standard 4G or 8G SD or Cf cards in a Dell Axim X5?

SD cards must be SD not SDHC, there is not an SDHC driver for the X5. You can find regular SD cards up to 4G.

CF is no problem, all flash based CF cards will work. Microdrives can be problematic.

Tomtom gone silent

I would recommend that you reinstall the software.
Uninstall the program first and do a fresh install.

Does Axim Have a serial Connector

From what Dell shows in their downloadable manual there may be a fabled serial connector from the cradle and the travel cable. Dell does not offer it at this time. I only read once that Dell may offer if Mid Jan. I would bet that you would have better luck waiting for an aftermarket company to make one *IF* the unit supports serial. I honestly don't see why Dell wouldn't offer serial but there is always that chance that they will support USB only. I have yet to receive my unit.

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.

Charging Axim while travelling

Do you mean another besides the A/C adapter? This is separate from the cradle (option), so you can take it with you together with the travel synch cable (option). Although Dell guides says to use no other chargers then the A/C adapter provided, this can be impractical in some situations. The spec on the charger is as follows. I suppose providing you meet this, you should be OK with a Auto or Lighter type adapter. Do so at your own risk.
