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.

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.

KEEP ON GETTING SEARCHING FOR RADIO SIGNAL

The tomtom traffic system uses either a 'O2 (White SIM) or Vodaphone (RED SIM). Service fluctuates between good and bad.
Contact tomtom support and ask for a replacement SIM card

Can gps coordinates be used with TomTom go live 750

If you mean, can you enter latitude and longitude coordinates on your GO 750 LIVE GPS device .... yes.

First you'll want to set your unit to accept coordinates. From the main menu, tap Change Preference, then select "Set Units" and select a Latitude and Longitude format in the "Coordinate display" screen, and then tap Done.

To navigate to a location using latitude and longitude coordinates, follow the steps below:

Where can i download a manual for a tomtom go live 825 gps

You just need to go to www.tomtom.com look for your gps model and usually under specifications there is a downloads link or go to bottom of that page. From there you need to click on the downloads section link and then enter your model in. Then you should be able to download the manual. They have changed this as it was a lot easier before.

This is the model page for one of the go live models. You may need to select one of the others on the side panel if this isn't the same go live as yours.The rest o of the instructions will be the same for you.

What navigation software can I install on a Dell Axim X30?

Glad to help YOU!
Correct me if I am wrong, but as far as I know this Axim X30 is still using Windows Mobile 2003 SE. It has a processor that runs at 624 MHz and you have about 64 Mb as internal memory; you can also use an SD Card in the slot up to 2 Gb.
Here is a list (accordingly to my knowledge...!) of the navigation software that you can use on your device:
# iGO
# CoPilot Live
# Garmin
# Navigon 6
# TomTom
Each software can be purchased online from the manufacturer's website. I suggest you - before you will buy - to check if are maps available for the area you are living in!

GOOD LUCK!

Installed co pilot 8 truck (gps) on dell axim 51v,program will open when screen is set on portrait,but when trying to open in landscape view it will not open?? windows 6.1 on device

The Application you are trying to use could have been designed only to open in the portrait mode rather than in the landscape hence its refusal to open in the kandescape.....

there are lots of situation like that......

I have a Garmin nuvi 260 and I bought it in U.S. I am going to the Netherlands and when I type in Netherlands it tells me it cannot find it. How do I use this in Europe?

You'll need to buy and install European mapping, such as Garmin's City Navigator® Europe NT, or the slightly cheaper but more restricted City Navigator® Europe NT – Benelux/France.
