    I recently attached my 720 to my bluetooth phone for PLUS traffic, and also turned on bluetooth auto quickGPSfix.

    QuickGPSfix was the primary reason I used HOME, other than the occasional app/map upgrades. So I don't expect to be on HOME much any longer.

    So now that I'll rarely use HOME, I'm curious about the "submit anonymous data" feature. Will it also submit via bluetooth services? I want to make sure I provide as much data as possible to assist in improving IQroutes.

    I guess the answer's no. I've been running unplugged from HOME for days now, since I have bluetooth autoquickGPSfix.

    I killed the HOME app and service, and all the triplog data from this discussion is still on my Tomtom. So Tomtom doesn't appear to transmit anonymous data via bluetooth.

    I was about to say to see if the log file gets deleted when you connect via data services, but you already just figured that one one :)
