I am soon to buy TomTom for my pocket PC. I was wondering if you knew if the Tom Tom DVD is the best software format for my TyTN II. I was also wondering which TomTom software is the latest and most suitable software for my HTC TyTNII.

Here are the links from Amazon.co.uk:

This one is TomTom 1T90.010 Navigator 6 Software & Maps Of Western Europe On DVD: cost is £87.99

http://www.amazon.co.uk/TomTom-1T90-010-Na...6763&sr=8-1

This one is TT NAVIGATOR 6 SOFTWARE + MAPWESTERN EUROPE DVD IN: cost is £84.14

no.

you need navigator 6, which is a download.

or (i think) you can get TomTom Home and install any extras/updates using it.

Thanks. But where do I purchase this navigator 6 and TomTom home.

By the way, I want the full package for the UK. I want the maps to come with the software

Tomtom navigator 3 the best tomtom ever, More configuration options than the later tomtoms.

Very disappointed with versions 5 and 6.

Version 6 even has the same mapping errors that version 3 had ! I thought they could have at least updated the maps.

rant over.

ps Nice link Paul - didn't know it could be had that cheap :(

I have TomTom Navigator 5 working on my Vario III - in fact, it works better with fewer lockups than on my old Vario I. I think I've only had 1 lockup in a few months, whereas I might get one every couple of weeks before.

Thanks for this link. However, I don't quite understand how a mini SD version of TomTom will work on my TyTNII? I would have thought I would have to buy the DVD version

Also, here is another link from amazon with software simmilar to the one you've posted, what do you think?

TomTom 1T90.060 Navigator 6 Software & Map On MiniSD Great Britain - £65.98

Thanks, but I still prefer the latest version of TomTom on pocket pc

I posted a simmilar question on the xda developers website and I was told:

"I believe the latest Official release for PPC is Tomtom version 6.03.8320 although there was a version 6.032.8351 which was distributed with HTC P3600i phones. Make sure that you get as a minimum version 6.030.8320 as it is faster...more stable and recognises the built-in GPS. Of the earlier versions only version 6.00 and 6.01 were official releases...6.1 and 6.2 were not "Official" release"

I am interested in purchasing the latest TomTom 6.03.8320 or 6.032.8351

Hi all. Update:

I've just got off the phone with a TomTom adviser from TomTom company (www.tomtom.com). They have told me the following.

I was told by by the advisor that I have to create account with TomTom. I then have to select navigator 6 model on the website and select the map types I want to purchase.

They told me that the latest updated maps for the UK cost £29.95 and maps for western europe cost £39.95.

I signed up with them and gave them email. Here is what they sent me by email:

Thank you for contacting TomTom Customer Support.

Step 1

- Uninstall any previous version of Navigator from your PDA

- Remove the SD card from the card reader.

Step 2

- Open TomTom Home

The map and the zip codes are now installed, we now need to install the application, to do this please follow these instructions:-

I was also told that I can update my maps daily with a function called 'mapshare'. This tool allows users to download the latest maps from other users.

I was also told that the maximum memory card size I can use to put my maps on is 2 GB. I was told if I was to purchase an 8GB memory card, that I won't be able to put the maps on there, and that I would have to switch memory cards to access the maps if I was using an 8GB memory card

That's bollocks. I'm running a 6gb MicroSD and tomtom works fine.

Thanks for that straight to the point clarification. Looks like I won't be carrying around two memory cards

Gah, my brain obviously read it as microSD :D

Buying the maps direct, cheaper, is a MUCH better option then! And I use TT on my 8GB microSD no problem :(

P

Yep, it is much cheaper. Plus, if you go directly through TomTom's website, you can be certain you are getting the latest version. The navigator software I was given was the navigator 6.030 version, so all seems well.

I havn't installed or actiivated anything yet for the simple reason I'm looking to have more device replaced.

And yes Paul, it does seem the TomTom advisor was mistaken when he told me the maps could not be installed on memory cards with a greater capacity than 2GB
