    Had an spv m600 which I loved to bits once I had filled it to bits with the excellent spb software. But, I needed satnav, so I bought an spv m700 off ebay (debranded to P3600, Windows 6.1 and Tomtom6 installed). Initially, the tomtom couldn't fing the internal GPS (disaster!) but thanks to the forum I found out it was because the "radio ROM" needed updating (the original owner had changed it to a non-GPS enabled version during the unlocking of the phone, but he kindly sent me the file to flash it to the correct ROM). So now it works and I'm beginning to enjoy it as much as the spv m600!

  1. Hi ElDiabo77. I like the idea, but then after every flash of a new ROM, I would have to rely on PIM Backup working properly. In my experience, sometimes it doesn't. Good idea though, I may try it.... Thanks. Mattster.
  2. (REPOSTED: Still looking for an answer....) Stopping sim contacts from appearing in the spb contact page Does anyone know if there is an option or method yet of stopping sim contacts from appearing in the spb contact page? I know duplicate names was a problem with earlier spb mobile versions, and I can't remember if anyone found a successful way of getting rid of them? I imagine most people have a copy of contacts on device and sd card, no? Mattster.
  3. Thanks Darren. I haven't found a way yet either... none of the fixes that work for the device contacts seem to work for spb contacts. Does Anyone know how to stop sim contacts from appearing in the spb contact page? Does anyone know if there is an option or method yet of stopping sim contacts from appearing in the spb contact page? I know duplicate names was a problem with earlier spb mobile versions, and I can't remember if anyone found a successful way of getting rid of them? Thanks, Mattster.

  5. Windows Mobile 6.1

    I've sorted it, incase anyone with the same problem reads this post: The problem was the old radio ROM flashed when unlocking the phone. I managed to get in touch with the original owner and he sent me a link to an an .exe file which I downloaded, ran whilst activesynced to my phone, and voila! I now have radio ROM 1.50.08.11. Tomtom 6.03 now successfully works using settings "other NMEA GPS receiver" with "GPS baud rate 115200" and "GPS in Com9"! Hope this helps others, Matt :D

  7. Can someone please tell me the settings for Tomtom 6 on HTC P3600 (Trinity / SPV M700) to successfully get the internal GPS device found... I've read that in Tomtom settings I have to select "NMEA GPC receiver" and then Com 9, but this hasn't worked. Then I read that with Tomtom 6 you choose "Built In GPS Receiver".... I'm confused and desperate as I find load of posts from people with the same problem, but no one with a solution that sems to work!!! The original owner of the phone (spv m700) debranded it and installed WM 6.1: Device name: HTC_P3600i Model NO: TRIN100 Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional ROM version 3.03.751.5 ROM Date: 04/01/08 Radio Version: 1.16.00.00 Protocol Version: 32.53.7018.01H Tomtom 6 is installed, but the GPS receiver is not being detected. I have done what the forums say, i.e. selected "NMEA GPC receiver", get a screen with: COM3: GPS in COM9 COM7: RIL on COM6: S2410 IRDA I have clicked on the first option (COM 9 is recommended), but still no GPS device found, indoors or out, after days of trying Help anyone.... please.......?! :D
  8. Windows Mobile 6.1

    Hi Fox, Thanks for replying. I've read that upgrading ROM's can knock out the GPS receiver? which is my main concern at the moment: The advice online is to select "NMEA GPC receiver" and COM9 (from the screen shown below) COM3: GPS in COM9 COM7: RIL on COM6: S2410 IRDA However, I still get no GPS signal, indoors or out. Don't know what to do! Any ideas? :D
  9. Windows Mobile 6.1

    Hi all. I Just bought an Orange spv m700. Original owner has debranded it and installed WM 6.1 Device name: HTC_P3600i Model NO: TRIN100 Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional ROM version 3.03.751.5 ROM Date: 04/01/08 Radio Version: 1.16.00.00 Protocol Version: 32.53.7018.01H I can't find any reviews online from user using WM 6.1 To tell you the truth I see little difference from WM5! (and I prefer the blue spec of WM5 to the green WM6.1) Can anyone help dish the good and the bad? :D
  10. SPV M700 Bass Fix

    Hi. Any update on this? I have WM 6.1 on my spv m700. Is the bass fix recommended?
  11. Hi all. I've heard that when you use satnav on the spv m700 the volume is a bit low. This can apparently be solved by buying a suitable Powered Speaker Cradle Kit. Does anyone have any recommended models that are made for the spv m700? Thanks, Matt. :D ALSO: What screen protector do you recommend I buy for the m700?
  12. Hi all. Help and advice needed please: I have just bought an spv m700 (with Windows Mobile 6.1) and need to transfer all my stuff from my spv m600 (with Windows Mobile 5.0): 1. On my m600, all my contacts are stored on the phone (not the sim). What's the best way to transfer them all to my m700? 2. Does all the great SPB software on my m600 need to be downloaded again to the m700 or are there CAB files somewhere which I can save to my laptop then transfer to my m700? (I presume the different WM edition makes no difference?) 3. I imagine the old owner flashed WM6.1 onto this m700. Is there anything I should know about this version (as I am only used to WM5) Any other advice you may have on how to best use my new spv m700 will me much appreciated. Thanks in advance, Matt. :D
  13. Subject: Which is better: an spv m700 or an orbit xda? Also.... Does anybody know if Tomtom 6 runs better than Copilot 6 on the spv m700, or vica versa? Am I better off going with a registered copy of Copilot (which i have) or a copy of Tomtom. Apparently with a copy you can't update it online? Thanks, Matt.
  14. This is a great thread. So much useful info I'm jotting down! One question: Which is better: an spv m700 or an orbit xda? I've had an spv m600 for a year, love it to bits. I now need satnav, so I'm tempted to get an spv m700, but a few people have told me that the orbit xda is the better performing of the two (even though it has a smaller processor). Anybody got any suggestions, recommendations, experiences, comparisons? Thanks in advance, Matt. :D
  15. Everyone seems to agree that WM6 is faster, but I'm worried about conflicts I'm reading regarding software that was originally intended for use with WM5. E.g Tomtom 6. Hopefully we'll get more responses soon and be able to way up the pros and cons.
