    Hi GINKO
    sorry i have not replied earlier. received your silent mp3 file ,i am not sure how to put this onto the tom tom 730.
    I do not have an SD card , i have been told you can add mp3 files without a sd card straight to the tom tom memory ,is this so if not i can get an sd card no problem.also will the end result enable me to hear the hands free phone through the car speakers.please be patient if some of my questions have obvious answers.

    I HAVE MANAGED TO PUT THE 2 SEC SILENT MP3 FILE ONTO THE 730 BUT NO LUCK WITH SOUND COMING FROM CAR SPEAKERS.ALTHOUGH THE MUSIC STOPS WHEN YOU TUNE IN THE FM TRASMITTER OPTION.SET 2 SEC FILE TO REPEAT,ASSUME THIS IS THE SAME AS LOOP.

The principle is that if you play a music track you will be able to hear music through speakers. When you get a message from TomTom the music will break and you will hear the message.
If instead of listening to music you put on your SD card a silent track you will just listen to the Sat Nav without any music.
In the meanwhile you won't be able to listen to music from car stereo.
You can just store the following silent MP3 (2 seconds) into SD card, and select play loop so to repeat the 2 secs blank track.
Here the 2 seconds silent MP3.
Note: Using TomTom in this way may be against local laws and regulations.

HI,

To copy Tom Tom silent file to your device you need an SD card, without that you cant do that..

Here is the instruction to copy the silent file:

1: Update to latest firmware from tomtom website, for 8.351
2: Put that silent mp3 file into the MP3 folder of the SD card that can be accessed from the My computer after connecting the TomTom to the computer
3: Play silent mp3 in loop
4: Send nav instructions over fm to radio...

Now this should enable playing sound to handsfree speakers, Dont forget to update theFirmware

Please leave me comment, if you need further assistance

Can i put sat nav on the htc f3188


Hello.
Sorry, but HTC F3188 doesn't have a GPS receiver built in. You can buy a GPS receiver that can connect with it via Bluetooth, but they cost only 10-15$ less than a small sat nav.
Regards, Achil.

How can i update my guide sat nav


If the maps are on an sd card you may be able to put tom tom on but as for updates myguide no longer exist and so don't provide updates. Mine still works fine and any roads that have been built that don't appear on the sat nav i have managed anyway.
