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!

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!
