Am I right in saying that if I'm using the fone as a gps/tom tom device then I pretty much cant use other features on it at the same time? e.g. listen to music?
At first I thought it was a good (and cheaper) way of using the tomtom system but now I'm thinking I might get fone calls and wont be able to use my touch plus for music because tomtom will be working on it. Have you guys found this to be a problem?
You can certainly get calls while running TomTom. As for listening to music, I've never even tried - a large part of the benefits of TomTom (and similar products) are the spoken directions and audio warnings; even if your device has the power to play music and run tomtom side by side without any issues you'll find that each diminishes the enjoyment of the other imho.
Back when I had a hermes, I used this bluetooth adapter: http://svp.co.uk/pro...on_tomtom)_4313
It isn't the cheapest I've seen but it works really well, lasts a long time on a charge, works with every single GPS app I've ever thrown at it and it's a Sirfstar III chipset based device too. As you can see from the pix on that page, it's small enough to chuck into a pocket and forget about if you're going hiking or suchlike.
Money well spent - I've got a Kaiser now with the built in GPS but I'd definitely buy one of these again if I needed to.
