    New Tomtom 600/6000 Models

    It sounds like the best solution is to use a smartphone along with the TomTom GPS app. The problem is most phones can't withstand excessive amounts of heat unlike most standalone GPS units. The LG Nexus 4 is a prime example of this. In Portland, Oregon when the outside temps get above 70 degrees...

    New Tomtom 600/6000 Models

    Not sure what would make anyone think that bluetooth is a dead technology. Most high end factory installed car stereo systems use bluetooth to share a smartphone's internet connection. There are none that use wifi except in luxury cars that have a built-in wifi router. Bluetooth is the only way...

    Android phone compatibility

    Thanks. Still doesn't make sense though. Even if the graphics in TomTom's app display at a lower resolution than the screen's native resolution Android will still scale the graphics to fit automatically. They wouldn't look any worse than they do on TomTom's 5-inch screen standalone units.

    Android phone compatibility

    Does anyone know what phones are compatible with the new Android TomTom app for the USA? TomTom originally said the app would work on every single Android phone that runs Android 2.2 or later and has a screen resolution of less than 1280x720. It now appears that TomTom has a specific list of...

    Can't download update for GO 2535 M LIVE

    I have a GO 2535 M LIVE unit. Both the MyTomTom application and the TomTom website say there's an update available for my GPS unit, but when I click on the "Get Item" link it won't let me download the update. The TomTom website won't even tell me what the update is. It just keeps telling me...

    App 11.023 released for GO 2535 M LIVE

    There appears to be a massive performance improvement with this update too. About 5 seconds after the TomTom startup image went away my GO 2535 LIVE unit was connected to the live traffic service. With the navcore version prior to this one it took about 45-60 seconds in the best case. In the...

    Stuck on "TomTom services....Continue" screen!!

    Is this outage part of TomTom's planned migration to TomTom Places instead of Google Search?

    Stuck on "TomTom services....Continue" screen!!

    I've been having this problem since Friday, September 9 with my GO 2535 M LIVE unit. This is a much bigger problem than some people seem to realize. I get the red "Unable to establish a wireless connection" screen. Hitting continue gives a red screen with gibberish so I power the unit off. Then...

    Can Home 2 and Home 3 be installed at the same time?

    I have a TomTom XL 335TM that my mother uses and a TomTom GO 2535M LIVE that I use for myself. Can the older HOME 2 software be installed at the same time as the newer MyHOME software for the GO 2535 unit? I need to be able to do map updates on both units from the same computer. My laptop is the...

    Bugs with app version 10.500

    I've come across a couple of new bugs on my GO 2535 M LIVE unit. I've created my own menu with an "Add Favorite" button. Every time I tap this button I get an error stating my GPS reception is poor even though the unit has full GPS signal and has pinpointed my exact location. I can add my...

    New Info about Upcoming MyTomTom Features

    It's my understanding that you can redownload the most recent map you've paid for whenever you want at no additional charge should it get deleted from the GPS unit somehow. Of course the navcore can be redownloaded as well if need be so it makes sense that a complete backup means a backup only...

    LIVE connection problems

    I'm in Beaverton, Oregon. My unit showed 3 bars of cell network coverage. This area is among AT&T's strongest coverage areas. The LIVE services seem to be working better now. Unlike Garmin and the older XL LIVE units, this new GO 2535 unit actually keeps trying to connect. The other LIVE units...

    New Info about Upcoming MyTomTom Features

    I'm using navcore version 10.500 and the 875 map. The exact wording of the message was "Every time you connect your unit to your computer a complete backup will be made".

    LIVE connection problems

    I just got a TomTom GO 2535 M LIVE unit. Out of the box the unit flat out refused to connect to LIVE services. I didn't see what software version it came with. I installed the new navcore version along with the 875 map last night. This seems to have fixed most of the LIVE connection problems...

    New Info about Upcoming MyTomTom Features

    I just bought a TomTom GO 2535 M LIVE unit. A message keeps flashing on it saying that every single time it's plugged into a computer every single last file (a complete backup in TomTom's words) on the GPS unit will be backed up.

    Route optimization is (sort of) here

    I was just curious strictly in terms of routing performance which is better. Is Garmin actually using route optimization like TomTom apparently is? Or does Garmin use one of the other methods like route sorting or waypoint sorting?

    Route optimization is (sort of) here

    So is this new route optimization better than what Garmin uses for multi point routes?

    TomTom announces new 2435 and 2535 models for the US

    What has changed since the 2505TM model? The new 2535TM model sounds like a lower end model. According to TomTom's website it has an Easy Port mount similar to the older budget resistive screen units (the 2535 still keeps the magnetic part though). Unless they're identical, TomTom's website only...

    Map 865 released

    The MyHome software still says my unit is up to date with map version 855 as of today. Apparently TomTom's support reps are about as useless as HP's India based tech support reps with my laptop.

    Map 865 released

    Strange. When I checked my email late last night I noticed that I got an email from TomTom support that specifically said the 865 map was released for the GO 2505TM at the same time as it was for the older TomTom units. The email said to call TomTom support immediately if the map update isn't...
