Dell Axim 5 + TomTom navigator GPS ?

I live in the Netherlands and I'm thinking of buying the Dell Axim 5 for car navigation. I have read a lot of positive reactions about the TomTom navigator software together with the GPS. Only problem is that TomTom does not provide a cable for the Axim as of yet.

I use the Dell Axium X5 with Navigator 5 and it works very well. I use a GlobalSat SiRFSTAR III Compact Flash GPS in the top of the X5 and it can find a good range of sats even inside a car.

Re: 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.

GPS Use


Hye! here's how you can take care of this issue: Dowload google maps from the web (for windows mobile) & install it on your diamond. In order to use GPS on this phone, your internet/gprs connection must be functional; without netwrok connectivity you cant use GPS on this device as it does not have the map interface on its chip (& cant be loaded later too). It just has a light GPS transceiver which in presence of a mapping software (such as google maps) can show your position on the globe & in some countires can also navigate you. After installing google maps, make sure your internet connectivity is on and then work with google maps 'USE GPS' & 'My location' or 'Navigate' functions ... enjoy!

TomTom Nav5 problem: Arm Read memory allocation error


I don't know what it is with those brits but I think they hate us here in the America's. I have TomTom Nav 4 on my wife's T3 and had problems with instillation but could not get support (real person) from tomtom. Did you buy the Nav 5 from Palm's website? I called them and they said that they were making one "JUST" for the LD but didn't know how long that was going to take. If anything if you did buy it from Palm you should try calling them and see if they can help you with it.

Problems with SD Slot on Axim


I once used Mazingo on another pocket pc. I had it set to use the CF card in it. It did the same thing it's doing on yours now. It caused word to take a long time to open and it loaded the pages in it really slow. I stopped using it for that reason. I think it may just me the Mazingo program.

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. (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. http://62.250.17.58/cgi-bin/uk.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=3236&p_cre ated=1119370927&p_sid=Bs6i7vLh&p_lva=&p_sp=cF9zcmNoPSZwX3NvcnRfYn k9JnBfZ3JpZHNvcnQ9JnBfcm93X2NudD0zMzgmcF9wcm9kcz0mcF9jYXRzPSZ wX3B2PSZwX2N2PSZwX3BhZ2U9MQ**&p_li=&p_topview=1 good luck!

Do you have sufficient memory on your iPAQ? Check your memory settings, also check running programs tab, maybe you have too many programs still running in the background causing the latency. Try a soft reset (stops all running programs in the background) or end task on them, then see if it still lags.
