    I found TWO versions of TomTom HOME

    Thanks for the reply. I will delete the one I don't need - already have too much junk in my download folder.

    Go 920 with BlackBerry 9550 on Verizon

    I now have a Tour and recently purchased Tetherberry and wonder if anyone has any idea if this might work for Data Services on the Tomtom? I am a member of Crackberry and will probably ask there, too.

    I found TWO versions of TomTom HOME

    I was trying to solve a phone-tomtom bluetooth issue and TomTom Home offered me an update of itself. I generally prefer to download apps myself and not allow auto-updating. That way I'm more in control. So I searched TomTom's site and found Home but I seem to have found two versions for...

    New phone bluetooth issue

    Solved Well, after 3 months.... I had to reset my BB Tour's bluetooth devices and had them all re-installed but NOT tomtom. So I was determined to FIX it. I tried resetting, I tried removing 3rd party tomtom apps. I tried more resetting. I found you need to press reset for 15+ seconds...

    New phone bluetooth issue

    I did reset the 920. And the phone. It still detects my old 8830 and says connected to "bb8830..." I do NOT want to reset the 920 to default. I am not even sure what settings I may lose in doing that. I still have an older os on the 920. I recall pairing with a friend's phone over a...

    New phone bluetooth issue

    I've got the 920. It is paired with my Blackberry 8830. I am trying to add a new phone. Problem - I don't see anywhere to manage the phone connections at all. I seem to recall such a screen or option. Another issue - on the Preferences screens, the Bluetooth option is grayed out - I...

    Testing European routing from US location

    Thanks for the help hint. I have forgotten those methods of anticipatory planning. Even after I did it the first time, I forgot and again just started NAVIGATION. Of course, the gps was physically sitting in the pacificnorthWET and was lost and had some real problems navigating to Seefeld in...

    Testing European routing from US location

    We've decided to NOT spring for the extra rental car gps fee while in Austria/Italy. I've got my hopefully trusty 920 with European maps (I have not really upgraded the maps or firmware). It has worked to my satisfaction for US and US-Canada. But I would not mind testing it out in advance on...

    Back Up Question.

    Make sure that you have Explorer/Windows show all files including ReadOnly, system and hidden files so that everything gets copied.

    USA/Canada 7.20 available in Map Guarantee

    Gilbert and others - I fully "understand" as this is now an issue when I call "english" support for other products/services and the person on the other end of the line, "Mitchell" has this thick Indian accent. While off-shore support probably was a reasonable idea when it was first initiated...

    Trip planning with DeLorme

    William, the thing most of us have to remember is that when we do know where we are going, local knowledge will generally be better than a gps. And while the gps might pick a somewhat convoluted route in unfamiliar terrain, hopefully, even if blocks out-of-the-way, it will get you to your...

    One Itinerary over multiday drive questions

    Your second paragraph nipped my question in the bud more or less. I was going to ask, what if I wanted to play or explore other destinations or view a video or play music and navigation/route was still ON???? I guess a real world test will be in order.

    When to "Pull the Plug" ?

    I generally also use the "Safely Remove hardware" icon on the Task Tray to "remove" the TT.

    One Itinerary over multiday drive questions

    This came up in a response I provided in a Tyre thread but got me thinking (dangerous, I know) I have created an Itinerary from Tacoma, Wa to Lee Vining, Ca, about 1,200 miles. It appears to be the route I want all the way. At certain intersections, I placed waypoints just past certain...
