    go 620 wifi
    I would like to know if I need to have the wifi on my iPhone switched off to be able to receive the TomTom services to work correctly. I have had different opinions on this from phone calls to technicians.
    The hand's free phone connection works well but receiving of text messaging does not, this is down to me having the Wifi on on my iPhone according to TomTom, any help would be much appreciated.

    Just so that we're all starting from the same place: You don't say what you mean by "WiFi on" on your iPhone. Are you talking about a WiFi connection to the outside world for your phone, or enabling WiFi tethering to your 620?

    Sorry about that. It was the WiFi conection to the outside world as you put it. Thanks for your quick response.

    There's no particular reason why that should cause any issues unless there's something really iPhone specific going on.
    That said, I'm curious as to why you have your WiFi to the outside world enabled in mobile operation. I have only done this while traveling on a bus that offered WiFi service in foreign countries to avoid cell data costs. Even then, I will typically use the TomTom Nav4 phone app rather than one of my devices.

    One way to be sure -- turn the WiFi off while driving and see what happens.

    Hi, thanks for your reply.
    I am 82 years old, so it probably a touch of senility setting in, but having said that, I've always had both Wifi & Data switched on believing that if a Wifi connection was not available it would use my Data.
    This is my first post on this site and find it good to use.
    Thanks again
    George P
