Gps

Hi all, i have some generic thing i purchsed on ebay for abot £45, its black with 3 lights on it, lol, thats all i can say, with the external ariel it never ever lost a gps signal.

But i have noticed this, tomtom crashed twice today in the middle of bristol, ferking place that is for it to happen.

The software just closed, no freeze or lockups, just vanishes, re-load, and no gps connection???.

I rebooted the phone, this was all while driving in circles becuase i didnt know where i was, bristol, ferkin place, and foend gps, another say 2 mins, bang software vanishes?????, WTF! is that all about, so i pull over, take the ferkin battery out, AGAIN, reboot, and this time it stayed working.

Now i gotta say this is shit, who need this, and for all this fangled pairing crap, it shud just work full stop.

I wud not buy this software in its present state, was gonna, but nah not now.

Still great when it does work, but not 100%

Damn, soz to hear about that Roden.

As for me...it's so weird...I thought the N70's tones/sounds could have clashed with TomTom...anyway the phone lost the GPS bluetooth connection a few times just now for me...even after a reboot...it chooses when it wants to work...just randomly!

Does anyone here with the V5 firmware have a BT-77 or other 3rd party receiver?

Jon

Hi

Just bought on ebay for € 50 a SilverShield GPS receiver. I hope it will work fine with my Nokia N70 with TomTom 5.2

I heard a lot of problems about the POI's and speed cams but untill now no problems. I'm using at the moment a TomTom GPS mkII receiver from my Ipaq.

I let you know how the silvershield receiver works on both devices.

Cool, would appreciate it. People have said the TomTom GPS MKII is fine but not perfect on the N70...so just looking around for the most reliable.

Cheers,
Jon

The TomTom mkII works perfect with my N70, if my SilverShield works as good as the mkII I'm a happy man

New & Stressed

Hi all, have been wading my way thru this tread!

I'm using a SilverShield BT GPS, and i'm suffering the same as most people, altho, if I drop the GPS signal I can get it back via the SHOW GPS DEVICES option in the TT menus most of the time.

Went for about 3hrs the other day, and was in the middle of no-where, but on my trip into work it'll loose connection 3-4 times!

Tried removing all of the POIs (Gatso's inc) and altho problem is less frequent still happens.

Is anyone using the Nokia BT GPS device (LD-1W i think) an if so it the BT connection any better.

Maybe of some interest that if I turn the 3D map off the problems don't happen as offen.

Cheers...

I think I've found a way to make it 80% stable with the BT-77:

1. Delete all pairings. Then turn bluetooth off.
2. In bluetooth settings, set it to 'Shown to all'.
3. Start TomTom, let it turn on bluetooth.
4. In TomTom, goto 'Show GPS Status'
5. Press 'Configure' then select the TomTom receiver. You will then return to the screen with grey bars.
6. Then press 'Configure' again and choose 'Other Bluetooth GPS'. If your receiver comes up in the list without even doing a search, don't select it. When it says 'Searching' you should then switch on the BT-77. Then choose BT GPS.
7. Now you will have bars going up and down. It will probably drop the bluetooth and say 'No GPS device' 3 times, but then after these 3 drops, it should be fairly reliable after.
8. When finished, goto 'Show GPS Status' again and choose the TomTom receiver. You will have grey bars again, so now turn off your BT GPS receiver.

Try this out and let me know how it goes.

GPS Bluetooth working with new firmware???

Hi,

Can anyone please confirm that a GPS application is working with the new Nokia N70 firmware (V.30 or greater)?

Do people with the updated Firmware still have Bluetooth connectivity dropping problem using TomTom?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

TomTom Navigator 5.20 works perfectly, without any additional PoIs to the standard ones, with firmware version 2 & 3.

TomTom 5 with EMTAC GPS

I have an EMTAC GPS receiver and using a GPS application and the GPS connectivity is lost randomly. I'm not sure if this is a software or a hardware issue. I have the new N70 firmware.

Please let me know if you have experienced this problem. If so, please state the name/type of your receiver and the version of Firmware you have.

Thank you very much.
I'm in desperate need of help!!!!!!

Just to let you guys know we spoke to nokia and Tomtom about this on fri 24th as we are keen to get it working after buying 5x N70 phones for our engineers at work. Nokia said they are aware there is a problem and we will have to await for a firmware update. Tomtom also said they are aware of a problem with the connectivity manager in the N70 and are looking at a workaround. We are on a mailing list for any updates so soon as we know will let you guys know maybe save everybody pulling their hair out trying to get it to work

Bluetooth GPS

Mart69,

Thank you very much for replying. So you are still having the problem with the 5x firmware? We were told by one Nokia representative that the 5x firmware should solve our problem. Our team of engineers have been testing it with the 3x firmware and we are still having this problem.

The 3.x firmware seemed to have improved the bluetooth state a little bit though. Before with the 2.x firmware, we were not able to reconnect to a GPS receiver after the connection was lost. Now, it's reported that the connection still gets lost but you don't have to restart the phone to get the bluetooth connected again.
