The iphone require an adapter to run tomtom software.
It is basically a windscreen dock that contains a GPS signal booster/receiver and a speaker with charging abilities.

    Thanks very much. Your answer helped me decide to get another GPS app like Navigon rather than buy another piece of hardware clutter for the same price.

    Your welcome. A lot of people are caught out with the iphone issue. They really should make it clear before you purchase it. Not a sudden find out that you need to spend another 75 quid after

SOURCE: No GPS signal?

I had this problem (waiting for a valid GPS signal). I did a factory reset and the unit started working again (yes, I lost all my settings, but what good is a GPS unit that just sits there waiting for a valid GPS signal?). To do a factory reset, go to menu -> change preferences -> Reset factory settings.

SOURCE: "Poor GPS Reception" error on iPhone Tom Tom GPS

Unfortunately it appears the iPhone's GPS chip isn't up to much as we've all suspected. Some people can get it working while many are reporting, like you, that they get drop outs and poor signal strength errors. This is happening accross all the iPhone Sat Nav apps so it points the finger at the GPS chip itself, especially as many of these people are stating they have dedicated tomtoms and the like that work fine. I've tried Copilot, tomtom and others on the iPhone 3GS and none are able to keep signal long enough to be any good. In fact they are a complete waste of money. It's no suprise Tomtom are releasing a cradle for the iPhone which includes a seperate more powerful GPS receiver...

Tom Tom doesn't Work inside the car


Metal blocks signals. If you are putting the TomTom on the dash, and there’s still a weak signal, then there’s metals (or some impurities) in the windshield interfering with the signal.

Try having it held near the rolled down window on the passenger side.

If this helps, then you might want to find out if your model has available an external antenna!

I have downloaded a tom tom gps system on my iphone 4 and am looking for an owners manual or user guide so that i can find out how all the functions work


no offence intended here, but why would you need a manual , the tomtom sat nav software for the iphone is incredibly easy to use. Simply play with the app to find out how to use it, thats part of the fun of having. But if you really need it choose your language to download it from here
