SOURCE: My HTC TyTN II GPS

I Got it!
I finally got my HTC TyTN II yesterday from Dubai.
First thing I wanted to test was the GPS. It did not work with: TomTom6, Google Maps, Yahoo Go.)
I was surfing around to find something that would help me out and have noticed that many people have the same problem.
Many people (Like me) did not know howe to setup the GPS.
Many people are saying: "You have to put it your GPS settings in Com 4 and the Baud rate on 4800 and it should work.
Well mine didn't work with those settings. (Along with other people.)
I had played with the External GPS option (Don't do this cause setting something wrongm ay cost you a HARD-Reset.)
I Was lucky that mine worked again after a SOFT-Reset. So watch out!
The standard GPS settings! (If you have changed it, Soft-reset your phone and set it up as these pictures show.)
display1sq8.jpg display2ei6.jpg display3tc2.jpg display4zi4.jpg
Why am I doing this?
People buy this phone to make use of it. When something does not work why buy the phone then :S
Hope that this may help a lot of people on here and other forums, communitys & websites.

Here is my story of how I did get my GPS to work:
1. Download the GPS addresses by using QuickGPS (Start -> Programs -> QuickGPS).
(This will download info of what your GPS Reciver needs to connect to the satalites.)
2. Download a free (Well half free, You can also buy this application it will give you some extra options, but we don't need those extra options.) tool named: GPS Test. (http://www.smartphone.net/software_detail.asp?id=3170 or at http://www.pocketpc-software-downloads.com/software/t-free-pocketpc-gps-test-download-uykfcoyy.html)
(This program will scan all your mobiles com ports and Baud rates, To see what your real GPS settings are.
In my case they were: COM PORT: 4 - Baud Rate: 9600 (Notice it ain't 4800. Usaly it shows your settings with a pop-up.
When It doesn't Go to "Menu -> GPS Settings", There it will show you you're GPS settings.)
3. Install TomTom 64. Download your free map.
5. Go to the GPS settings.
(Set-up: Other NMEA GPS-Reciver -> GPS-Baud Rate -> Com. (Select the Baud rate + Com port from what the GPS Test did show you.)
6. Now wait.

I am glad to HELP YOU!

Definitely after the impact your device became LESS SENSITIVE on the lower left side.
So as a replacement you will need
FIRST - the digitizer
SECOND - the display [but ONLY if the older display has cracks or other damages].

GOOD LUCK!

Probaly you're still within the gaurantee periode, go back to the store and don't tell them that it is you're own fault that you've bricked your tom tom, they only need to know that it stopped to work without anny reason, that this happend with normal use, they should replace it for you or send it back to tom tom to fix it for free.

Next thime don't unplug you're tom tom when it is updating, be patient,
the software tells you when it is finished updating.

Succes.

Not touch sensative


In 90% of the cases it's the digitizer (the touch sensor that is mounted in front of the screen). You can try to replace it yourself or send it to a third party gps repair service.

Tom To Rider


Unfortunately I have encountered the same issue with my Tom Tom Rider. I have worked out the problem is between the mounting bracket and the GPS unit. There are 4 little metal pins that spring in and out on the mounting braket that are supposed to be in touch with 4 metal cylindrical metal surfaces on the rear of the GPS head unit. This looks good in design and theory, but the GPS unit does not always make contact with the metal pins, hence allowing no charge to GPS unit and automatically turns itself off whilst riding. I have sort to overcome the issue with building the rear of GPS head unit cylindrical contact points with solder. It is a fiddly fix, but to date this has overcome the issues you have named up. A small drop of self fluxing solder is all that is required. No more than 2mm projection off GPS unit. Allow the solder to adhere to contact and move soldering iron towards the base of GPS unit. The reason for doing this is to allow the pins extra contact surface. I found my pins on the mounting unit did not line up with GPS head unit when fitting together from new. It's not easy to see this, but shine a torch light as you bring 2 surfaces together and you will see what I mean. The mounting braket pins were slightly lower than the GPS contacts. This is what causes the problem. Hopefully Tom Tom will redsign these on the next model or allow more contact space and tolerances to eliminate this frustration. Regards, Nicky (fellow Tom Tom Rider)
