Why does TomTom MOBILE 5 not start?

Question:

Q. I've installed TomTom MOBILE 5 on my Nokia smartphone and the icon's there in the applications screen, but when I activate it the screen just goes white as if it was starting OK and then the icon reappears. Any ideas?

Answer:

A. It's almost certainly low RAM (i.e. the dynamic memory used for running applications) - TomTom MOBILE 5 is extremely hungry! Press and hold the Menu key and you'll see anything that's currently running. Close down anything non-essential (either by switching to it and using 'Exit' or by pressing the 'C' key from the pop-up list). After this, you should have around 7 or 8MB of RAM free. TomTom MOBILE 5 should then start OK (it needs around 6MB).
