    Thumbs down Unable to connect TomTom 910 to Blackberry 8800

    Advertisement



    Ok so I have a Blackberry 8800 and I just got a TomTom 910 GPS. Yes I know the 8800 has a GPS but due to coporate policy it keeps timing out and locks me out during route. So I can get the TT910 to use the 8800 for dialing my phone and transferring the phone book. I just can't use the TomTom Plus service because it can't connect to the internet through the 8800.

    Here are the current settings I am using on my TT910.

    Access Point: internet.com (also tried isp@cingular)
    Username: ISP@GPRSCINGULAR.COM
    password: CINGULAR1
    Phone: *99***1#

    With these settings I am still unable to connect to the internet with my TT910. Other cell phones this works. I am using Cingular with Blackberry Service Data Plan. Any help would be much appreciated.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ Does your internet service work without the TT910 connected? You mentioned a corporate policy. That may be why it can't connect.

    I can use the internet on my phone when the TT910 is connected or not.

    Thanks for looking at the thread.

    Tom Tom doesn't support Blackberry unfortunately. I have a Tom Tom One. Of course the support the razr! Sorry for the bad news. Hopefully they will someday though!

    Well the TT910 supports Blackberry 8100 out of the box. I have to manually enter in my settings with the 8800 because it's not listed. I have tried the Blackberry 8100 profile for the 8800 but that didn't work.

    Thank you for viewing the thread

    Wow! I guess that Tom Tom must have started stepping up to the plate somewhat! When I emailed them last year, they had no models supposedly supported, and I check at least monthly to see if my 8100 is supported by my TT One!
    Thanks for the info however. I'm sorry my info was a bit misguided, and hope mine gets supported soon!

    ControlBB....you may wanna check with your company's IT (BES) admin. We have a similar issue here @ work with the corporate policy restricting 3rd Party Apps and any Bluetooth connection outside of headset pairing (e.g., using the BB as a tethered modem, or, in your scenario, pairing the BB with an external BT GPS receiver).

    Even if you get the APN settings from Cingular, which *should* still be -- APN. wap.cingular (lowercase);
    USERNAME. WAP@CINGULARGPRS.COM
    (UPPER CASE); PASSWORD: CINGULAR1 (UPPERCASE) -- you may find your BES admin(s) are restricting that feature.

    Good Luck & Keep everyone posted

    He can use it to dial a phone number and to access the phone book. He can't use the service that goes with it.

    OK so I was able to get my BB8800 connected to the TT 910. I added the phone selected other when the list of phones came up. Clicked on USA then clicked on Cingular Wireless (MediaNET) not Cingular Wireless. It connected and now I am able to get traffic updates. Thanks all for your help.

    I have the TomTom One and the Blackberry Pearl with the data plan. The TomTom One finds the blackberry via bluetooth but the problem is there are four different T-Mobile servies to choose from. (Tmobile I to Tmobile IV) I tried them all and with no luck, it still doesnt work.

    I'm just guessin tomtom will update the firmware soon and support the pearl... at least i hope they will.

    you can set it up manually! I did it for my TomTom and the service works perfectly. Here are the setting to enter manually for your 8800

    Pair the 8800 with TomTom normally then go to TomTomservices and when autoconfigure for TMobile USA fails choose "manually change settings"
    1. APN "wap.voicestream.com"
    2. username <leave it blank>
    3. password <leave it blank>
    4. Dial confidguration string= at+cgdcont=1,”IP”,”wap.voicestream.com”
    5. Dial number = *99#
    Once it configures wireless connection go to the TomTom and choose "Update"

    Bada Bing Bada Boom! Should work perfectly
