Question about Dell Axim X5 Pocket PC

1 Answer

Tomtom gone silent

I have used TomTom with the Axim for some time very successfully. Once in awhile I have had a problem with it which was solved by doing a reset. However, recently, when I tried to go into TomTom, it just froze up and none of the controls would function. Pushing the reset button gives me back all the other functions of the Axim but, if I try to go back into Tomtom, everything freezes up again. Any suggestions?
Thanx,
Bob

I would recommend that you reinstall the software.
Uninstall the program first and do a fresh install.

Whatever I do, ie reset, turn up sound, change voices, go to silent and then back.....still my tomtom is silent and will not speak to me! What can I do


I think the speaker might broke, or something connecting the speaker. It might also could be a software bug, if the software on the TomTom is replacable. If not, it's probably the speaker.

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.

Tom tom one 3rd ed only turn on one time now it will not turn on


Hello, Unplug your Tomtom device, batteries should be fully charged. The tricky thing to Tomtom devices is the ROM put into the device. It needs to be reset once in awhile. The soft reset is like formatting a hard drive but leaving the system files alone. At the bottom of the device, there is a reset button. You'll need to use the end of a paperclip to reset the unit. After it's reset, reinstall the Tomtom application only by using the Tomtom Home application. Let it reset itself and come back to the original screen, then go to menu and set your preferences. Also if it's connected to Tomtom home and if you backed up your data to your computer, reinstall your maps. The only time your Tomtom device gets bogged down and won't finish a reinstall is when all 1 GB of memory is used up. 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.

Dell Axim + Tomtom. Routeplanning error


The error during planning is a map error not an OS error. It will give you this warning if you try to nav somewhere that it cant see any way of getting to because there is a gap somewhere en-route. Normally its the last 100 yards or something. The workaround is to nav to an adjoining road or somewhere very close to where you want to end up. Oddly or maybe coincidentally (which I doubt at 60,000 miles per year) I have only had this happen on the new maps.

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.
