Re: TomTom 5 BT mouse: no Connection
A friend of mine uses the same software for his PDA. I have asked him what the problem can be and he told me that some kind of “connection registry” or something like that is very important.
Start PDA and start the Bluetooth. Go to Bluetooth symbol and choose BT settings. There must be shown some “magnifying glass”. Click on it and the search will start. All visible objects will be listed in the upper part of window. Mark the GPS and it will be listed in lower part of window. Click on it and start this “connection registry”.
After that you can use the navigations software. Go to “GPS status” and there you must put some check mark on some green quadrangle.
Sorry I can not explain you exactly what it was but I am sure that in User`s manuals of TomTom you can find a right explanation.

Switch off the mouse. Control Panel->Add/Remove Progs. Uninstall the mouse drivers. reboot the PC. Install the mouse drivers from the CD that came with it. Reboot. Now power on the mouse and let BT talk to BT. It should connect now.
It has probably lost its Blue Tooth connection. I will attempt this one from memory...
The easiest thing is to push the connect button on the mouse, usually on bottom somewhere and see if it picks it back up.
If that does not work, the connection to the computer might have gotten reset.
If you look in the bottom right of your screen and see a little Blue icon (should say bluetooth if you hover your cursor over it), right-click on that and choose properties. This should bring up a window with a lot of tabs, look for one that says "Devices" (or something similar). You should see the mouse listed as a device, and connected. If not, you can choose to add a device.
Go through the steps to add the device, when it asks if your device is discoverable press the connect button on the mouse again so it can be found. It should then prompt you for a passkey to sync the devices, this should be labeled on the bottom of the mouse somewhere, typically it is pretty small. It is probably 0000 (four zeros). Once it goes through all those steps, the mouse should show up in the devices and hopefully should work.
Q: After pairing my mouse, the button click works but cursor tracking does not move. What can I do?A: The cursor tracking problem is because red sensor LED is not on. Please try another set of battery or fully charge battery again, and verify if bottom red LED turns on. If red LED still does not turn on, please remove batteries from mouse, press and hold the pairing button for 5 seconds, next press and hold the left and right buttons simultaneously for 10 seconds, followed by several clicks. Install the battery into mouse, you should see red LED turns on, mouse cursor will move.
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. (www.tomtom.com -> support).
I haven't checked it out myself though.
There is a guide available on how to configure your non-tomtom-bt GPS mouse.
Before you buy the GPS for your PDA please be careful if the GPS manufacturer guaranteed the functionality with your PDA. I have e800 and I plan to buy the GPS for my unit. Unfortunately at the moment I have no information which one you should you use.
You should have a look at the following document, to see how to setup a BT connection to your BT -GPS device.
