6800 and TomTom Nav Problem

I have used TT Nav 5 on a Palm for some time. I just installed it on my Verizon 6800 which has the internal GPS activated with the Valhalla .cab. The gps works fine with Google maps and Win Live Maps, but I cannot get TomTom Nav 5 to find it. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

Thanks,
Roger

Re: 6800 and TomTom Nav Problem

search for bafs gps toggle. You might need it to "prime" the gps - it starts first, opens the gps connection and starts the gps device going, then it launches tom tom, which finds the gps all ready to go.

I used to have to do that on my 6800, but after updating to the most recent Sprint OEM rom, I didn't need it anymore - at least not with TomTom 6

Another option is to leave Google Maps running in the background.

Re: 6800 and TomTom Nav Problem

Thanks for the help. I installed the bafs gps toggle and it works great. BUT, I open TomTom Nav 5 and it starts normally, showing the Map and the triangle icon on the map -- everything looks fine, but it says NO GPS. Within a few seconds the GPS Activates and the map disappears leaving the gps cursor and a green background. Any additional help will be much appreciated. The GPS is active but the maps are now not displayed.

Thanks,
Roger
