Tom Tom Mobile 5 FIXED on N70!!

Ok, This worked for me and now my ttm5 hasnt crashed once on my N70! Previously i had a BT77 Receiver and had nothing but problems, but I have fixed this problem with the following chain of events............

First of all, I bought myself a Tom Tom Bluetooth GPS Mk2, This also crashed/dropped bluetooth connection at first, So the bt77 might have worked.

Second and MOST IMPORTANT (this stops the crashing/connectiopn dropping) let TomTom pair the device to the phone itself, After using TomTom go into your phones "CONNECTIONS" folder then "BLUETOOTH" You need to make sure that the GPS Device is NOT PAIRED and if it is, DELETE IT! Everytime you exit tomtom. When you restart TomTom you will be asked for your pairing code and to accept connections, annoying, but at least it works!

Hi, sounds like you got a fix, I have also been using Bt-77 and drops off every 5-10 mins. I was coming to same conclusion that TT GPS would be possible solution. Thanks for your advice and I shall try this as would prefer to keep with TT5 than switch to R66, which was my next option....thanks for your advice

Have you tried the method he posted above with your BT-77 and if so what was the result?

Hi, yes I did but same problem arises when trying this with BT-77, after a while freezes and required full restart on phone! Very annoying as when it works it works perfectly, just short term!! I am still hoping there will be a more permanent and less fiddly fix from Nokia or TT. Regards.

Hmmmm. Ignore my first message. It stops the crashing/freezing, but not the bluetooth connection dropping, TT5 is totally un-usable after connection has droppped forcing a full restart anyway! I GIVE UP! Think i might try Route 66 instead!

What a shame, although was not an ideal fix, would at least be tolerable....I am switching to R66 now, until Nokia or TT come up with support or a patch/ crack to sort this annoying problem out!! Good luck.!

i think i have fixed it!!

Turn the phone in to off line mode before starting tomtom and it seems fine been using it like this for a couple of weeks whilst i was in australia and its worked fine every time i have used it! again a pain in the ass but some times navigation is better than phone calls

Thumbs up

I have the Nokia N70 with Tomtom mobile 5 original software and mkII gps unit. I had problems with the bluetooth signal out when I let the phone find the gps unit.

Having read various forums I found that when I deleted the pairing for the tomtom unit from the phone and just let the unit find the phone everything works fine.

It did start playing up again at one point so I checked the pairings list on the phone and low and behold there it was, after deleting it all was well again.

Hope this helps
Alan

Worth shelling out £180?

So is it worth buying then? I want something that works. Does TTM5 have a 7 digit postcode search function?

Cheers

Yes tomtom does accept seven digit postcodes, now I have solved the connection problem I think it is well worth the £200 pound I paid.

There was a short time when I thought differently and was glad I hadn't sold my Navman 610. Tomtom wins hands down with the postcode option.

Hi swat47,

I was close to giving up also, but give it one last try as described below...

Before each journey...
1. Reboot the phone
2. Delete ALL BT pairings
3. Activate the OFFLINE profile on the phone
4. Launch TomTom
5. Enter the pin 0000 for the OFFICIAL TomTom receiver.

I have just completed a 90 minute journey and the phone didn't crash, and the BT connection was not lost even once.

Hope this helps!

Dez

So has anyone got this to work with a 3rd party GPS unit using the offline method? I'm looking to purchase a GPS unit but i'd rather go with the Holux 236 (as it has WAAS and holds a signal better) than the TomTom receiver.

Ok, as no one has replied i'll phrase the question another way. Has anyone using a 3rd party GPS receiver tried the offline method and what was the result?

If anyone has an opinion of which GPS receiver to get that would also be appreciated. I'd also be interested in what the accuracy is like on the official TomTom GPS receiver?

Cheers.

Ive heard Rikaline are good! Not sure with N70 though. My tom tom gps mkII is just as accurate as any other device, I would say it connects far faster and has a much stronger signal than my old BT77.
