Tomtom 5.21 with the tomotm bluetooth GPS works fine for me !

the only issue i'm having is that it is taking 30 seconds to bootup (which it wasn't to begin with). Will probably hard reset my device this week and re-install to try and resolve the issue (find out what the conflict is). Most others seem to be reporting a 10 second ish boot time.

cheerio

This is the reason I quit using TomTom products on a PPC . They have compatability problems with the same hardware platform with a different ROM . Never had this issue with Copilot and they do the same thing. Get you from A-B in one go without fiding e, f, g and h on the way ;)

Hi,

Also using version 5.21 with my imate JAMin. Does take about 20 seconds to go from selecting in the Start Menu to the screen coming up. After that it runs fine with no problems. I make use of OMAP overclock to 240mhz as this cures some of the lag I was getting without it. I only use the overclock in Tom Tom. Certainly runs as well as it did on my JAM but hugely improved battery life.

Regards

I use TT5.21 without problem, start up is about 12 seconds, i think it take longer with larger maps and loads of poi's

if i disable poi's and install just a smaller map from (southern uk) from an older version of TT then i load much quicker

i have also noticed differances between what SD card i use, my older cards seem to be slower

It actually seems to me that the more applications you install on your prophet the longer tomtom takes to start up. Strange. Anyway, when i reached a certain point it jumed from about 15-20 seconds to 30 ish....not great but nevermind...hopefully someone will find a fix soon enough.

cheers

I'm guessing mine is failing to start cause of the SD card, its a kingston one.

Anyone got recoemndations on faster cards ?

I have exactly the same problem, it just fails to start. I bought a 1gb Pretek SD card which was the fastest I was advised to go for - 133 and it still doesn't work.

Would be greatful for any assistance.

I know its not tomtom, but I have Fugawi OS software and Satnav working nicely on my M600, not so great for street level but great for hillwalking and mountainbiking (if you have bar mount).

Mmm elements of it seem to work well others dont. THe PC software is very good. The PDA software is ok if a little limited. You have to manually load the maps from the PC to the SD card because there is a bug that means Fugawi only recognises the main memory. Also there are problems transferring tracks you have recorded on the PDA back to the PC. But I have loadded maps and routes onto the M600 no problem and it will show your position in real time. Good enough for me.

I have also managed to get TomTom 5.21 up and running on my M600, it does now take a good 20 or so secconds to start up but is fine from there, would be good to get that down to 5 seconds!! I like the idea of the password lock too but it kicks in even when TomTom is running, shame.

You wont get the time any lower. On a brand new device, hard reset and installed tomtom takes 17 seconds to load from SD card. The only wya to make it faster is use a faster SD card.

tomtom 6 loads up in 10 seconds from SD card and 6 seconds from main memory, keep the poi's down and speed should be nice and sharp
