My tomtom one will only accept first half of postcode

I know this won't be of help but just to let you know I just bought a full EU map for my trusty TT ONE and now I have the same problem. If I put the old UK map card into the device the postcode feature works as it should. If I find a solution I'll let you know.

My TomTom one 3rd edition crashes everytime i try to put in an address or select home. It does pick up my location at any one time and satelites no problem just wont take an address why?

Sounds like the os is corrupted. Make a backup on your computer. IMPORTANT DO NOT USE TT HOME FOR THE BACKUP. To do this, on your desktop right click and make a new folder. Then go to my computer and open the tt drive. Copy everything on the drive and paste it into the new folder. This step will take a few minutes. Next format the tt drive (this will erase everything on the drive). Turn off your tt and then disconnect it from the computer. Connect it again to your computer and let tt home reinstall your os. This may take a couple of times to get the latest os back on your tt. After tt home has installed the latest os for your device go to the new folder where you made your backup. Copy the maps and bmp's back to the root of your tt (don't open the drive to do this just paste it onto the drive letter).
Hope this helps

Pairing tomtom go720 with blackberry 8703

On your Blackberry (BB), make sure you have set your blue-tooth properties to show Yes for "Discoverable", then go through the TomTom (TT) to find a phone. Trying to find the TT with the BB will not work.

Once the TT finds the BB, the BB will ask for a code - enter 0000. Once the TT is successfully added to your BB device list, highlight the TT and check device properties - set to trusted.

This should get you there.
