XDA ORBIT - should upgrade to Windows Mobile 6 or not?

3 posts in this topic

Hi all - advice needed!

I've just bought an XDA ORBIT. It runs on Windows Mobile 5 and has TOMTOM 6 installed.

*** DO I RISK UPGRADING TO WINDOWS 6.0 OR NOT? ***

I seems to read mixed messages out there. I've heard TomTom6 runs better on Windows 5?

I also have copilot 6.0 discs which I could use instead. Anyone have a preference between Tomtom6 and Copilot 6 on the xda orbit?

Thanks in advance,

Matt. :D

No idea about the Orbit or TomTom but Wm6 is a lot faster and better than WM5 in most devices.

TomTom or CoPilot 6? I always preferred CP but most people preferred TT - until CP7 came out which is far better than TomTom.

On most devices TomTom problems (and there are lots of them) can be sorted out - especially if it is a legal version so you can download the patches, so I'd read up on other peoples experience of TT on the Orbit but for most devices I would recommend a WM6 upgrade.

Good luck.

Thanks Confucious.

If no one contradicts your advice today with a tale of their orbit blowing up after a week of Mobile 6, I should be fine now! The phone is off ebay, should be with me by tuesday, I doubt it will come with original tomtom discs, but I do have an original unregistered copilot 6 ready to install, so I may use that instead.

Thanks again for the rapid reply!
