To install the tomtom or route 66 software(better on a 4gb memory card if you don't want motorways or have a very long journey)-can run out of space to calculate route. To install the software you have to drag and drop each file individually and by each file i mean open each of the 6(i think) files on the disk and drag and drop each file from them,I would use an external card reader as i found there was certain chinese possible viruses on the disk which messed up my laptop.
personally i think the route 66 is alot better and upto date, the tomtom software is wrong on the postcodes, my old postcode in leicester when put in gave me a street 3 streets away from where it should have been. i have used route 66 do get from kings lynn to suffolk no probs, even found a very small row of houses right in the middle of nowhere to pick up an ebay purchase.the 2007 software on a navgo is actually more upto date than a ford in car satnav 2007. i have a new road about 3 miles long which i have and my dads satnav doesn't.
anyone need a new one and with tiscali- look out they have it on offer sometimes

The date and time settings.....ignore that it says GMT...actually click on it to change it to something else, then the correct one and tick the daylight saving box.

Make sure the SD card with Tom-Tom software has been inserted correctly and you are doing all this set-up outdoor, not inside a structure.
1st way of doing this: Inside the unit options you will have to choose the option for: (Tom-Tom Wired GPS Receiver) and this will get you the signal instantly. Here is how: click on the left upper icon (Navigation), then click on right bottom (look like stairs), then click on the right upper button (satellite), then button (configure), then choose Tom-Tom Wired GPS Receiver, select it. That?s it!
2nd way of doing this: If there are no signal: first of all in the main Tom-Tom Menu choose Change Preferences, after that will Show GPS status, then press Configure in the new window, select your GPS receiver "Other NMEA GPS receiver", GPS baud rate 4800 and then select the one COM that will give you the fastest connection overall (COM7 is preferred one).

Invalid version of TomTom application installed on your TomTom device. To use HOME you need to install the correct version of the TomTom application''

For users with Smartphones, Pocket PCs etc using TomTom Navigator 6,7 or 8. Please do the following...

If you have installed the application TomTom Navigator to your SD/MMC Storage card as supposed to your device storage then you need to uninstall TomTom Navigator. This will not affect your maps etc. These stay on your stotage card. After you have unistalled TomTom Navigator. Reinstall it but this time when asked where you wish to install it select Device, do NOT install it to the storage card.

Once done lauch TomTom Navigator and follow the setup instructions. Enable Map Share if you you want to use it. When you are finished with configuring the setup close TomTom. Connect your device to your PC/Laptop and open TomTom Home. The error message should now be gone plus if you were not recieving map updates and map shares etc you will now.

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.

New ROM update - navigation issues

I had the same problem. By turning of the POI (Points Of Interest) it no longer crashed. There is also and update for tomtom, version 5.10. ( -> support). I haven't checked it out myself though. There is a guide available on how to configure your non-tomtom-bt GPS mouse. ated=1119370927&p_sid=Bs6i7vLh&p_lva=&p_sp=cF9zcmNoPSZwX3NvcnRfYn k9JnBfZ3JpZHNvcnQ9JnBfcm93X2NudD0zMzgmcF9wcm9kcz0mcF9jYXRzPSZ wX3B2PSZwX2N2PSZwX3BhZ2U9MQ**&p_li=&p_topview=1 good luck!
