    Hi everybody , I'm new to forums so please excuse any unintentional protocol errors.

    My new TomTom 530 recognises my mobile (Motorola V3) and can connect and make calls. However, when I activate Traffic using Wireless connection my mobile disconnects. When I deactivate the Wireless connection the mobile is found again. Why can't I make & receive calls whilst my subscribed traffic application is activated? My mobile service provider is T-Mobile who states the mobile is functioning properly after a in-shop check.
    Will I have the same problem if I purchase a RDS-TMC Traffic Receiver?
    Any advise would be appreciated.

    Mick

    Do you have the laptop data plan on your t-mobile acct ($20/mo)?

    The $5/mo t-zones plan doesn't permit bluetooth.

    Taking or making a call will interrupt bluetooth data traffic. It changes between the data mode and voice, and says it is disconnected when it is on data services.

    The same would not be the case with a traffic receiver and using your phone.

    I try not to be on the phone long when I am driving while traffic situations are changing (rush hour) on my route.
