    8100 and TomTom 700 GPS

    Advertisement



    Finally got my 8100 to talk to my TomTom 700 GPS via bluetooth. Telephone part works great...however I can not get the rest of the "services" to talk to the phone. You need to do the advance string line in the GPS setup (like you do for the tethered modem). I tried both strings I found here on the forum but neither one works. Anyone have any ideas?
    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Nope, not yet...BTW, the "services" I wrote about are traffic updates, software downloads, map updates. They all have to come via the internet connection.

    ahhhh i'm having the same problem. the 700 detects the Pearl. However, when you enter the passcode ("0000"), it says unable to connect.

    If anyone can help a brother out...

    ok I was able to pair up the 700 with the pearl. That was after downloading the update from tomtom for the 700. It is now version 6.520.

    However, I cannot connect to the PLUS services ... even trying to input everything manually.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
    I just got a TomTom One new edition. I'd love to pair with my pearl. However it appears Razr's can pair but not BB. Makes sense for sheer volume of devices. But I bet way more BB users use Tom Tom.
