It says it cant connect to wireless data. I have sprint as my mobile service provider.i believe the Centro does have a DUN profile.
i have a treo 750 (WM6) and was able to set it up fine.
Activated the bluetooth on the phone and initiated search with the 920.
it asked to pair, and after pairing it asked me the country and the service provider (I am with ATT but used to be Cingular, so I chose Cingular mediaworks) and it all set up fine after that.
What error are you getting?
It's somewhat complicated but you can make it work...i use a treo 700p and was able to set up the plus services. it should work the exact same with centro. I got the details from this website (http://vocaro.com/trevor/treo-dun/) which guides you through a set up that will allow you to use your treo as a bluetooth modem so you can get wireless internet access anywhere you go. Oh, by the way...i use sprint so i don't really know if it works the same with the other services. Here are the steps in summary:I have a Sprint Palm Centro and I was wondering if there is a way to set up the TomTom Plus services with this phone. I had it set up with my Treo 650, but it looks as if this phone doesnt have dial up networking.
This worked for me. I set ActiveSync to manually Sync email (so it doesn't auto-connect) and then disconnected the 3G connection, and "hey presto" my TomTom GO 920 now connects using the Cingular (media) profile.i have seen that error with my windows mobile phone and i know how to solve it there. I will describe it here, and maybe it will help you solve the problem?
in my treo750, if my phone is connected to 3g (say I checked my email or browse on the phone - the phone gets connected) - then I get a little 3g icon with two arrows implying its connected to 3g.
Alternately i can choose to Disconnect wireless data, in which case the arrows go away and i just have the 3g icon.
For my tomtom to receive wireless data, i have to do the latter, meaning the phone cannot be connected to the internet, if it is to be used as a modem by the 920T. So I have to disable my automatic email checking, while using it as a modem. I wish there was an alternative (if anyone knows one, please let me know)
Maybe, that is what is happening with you and you need to ensure that the phone itself is not attempting to connect to the internet at the same time that the GPS is trying to connect through the phone
chuckydoll, did you ever get the PLUS Services working on on your GO 920 w/ your Centro?I have a Sprint Palm Centro and I was wondering if there is a way to set up the TomTom Plus services with this phone. I had it set up with my Treo 650, but it looks as if this phone doesnt have dial up networking.
Here is a way to do it:
Log-in to your sprintpcs.com account and make sure you have a wireless web username and password (power vision), they can be found on the main page and then select settings and passwords and look at the lower left hand of the page and you will see it there. If you don't know the password then select the icon under web user password and select a new password. Write these down, you will need them later.
Go to http://www.mobile-stream.com/usbmodem.html and download USB modem (don't worry, it has a choice for Bluetooth). Install the .prc file onto your Centro by clicking on the file. This program costs $25 (free trial)but it is worth it to me with my truck requiring $$$ Fuel. Go to the program on your Centro and click on the icon. Choose connection type (bluetooth) and then click on enable modem. Your Centro will reboot.
Go to your TT 920 and setup your settings for TomTom Plus services.
Access point: blank
username: Your Vision username you wrote down from sprintpcs.com
password: Your Vision password you wrote down from sprintpcs.com
Number to dial: #777
You are done!
It worked the first time for me. It seems it will work for all the Palm phones out there. Good Luck!
I am using the Treo 755p (sprint) with my 920 and the PLUS services work as well. The only think that doesn't work is traffic which is due to the sprint network. I called tomtom and they said that the signal they send is not compatible with the sprint network and that's why traffic doesn't work. I use the other services though!No luck here. I've tried both my Treo 755P AND Centro w/ a GO 920T and couldn't get the PLUS Services working.
Since the Centro uses PalmOS, the instructions I wrote for the Treo 680 should work for you(may need some minor changes)...I have a Sprint Palm Centro and I was wondering if there is a way to set up the TomTom Plus services with this phone. I had it set up with my Treo 650, but it looks as if this phone doesnt have dial up networking.
