    I just got a TomTom 720 and so far its much better than using my Treo for GPS. Can't get TomTom Plus services to work with my 755P though. Is there anything special I need to setup?

    Anyone else have TomTom Plus services working with a 755P?

    Tom Tom Plus, on my 755 works. I get Real Traffic, and Weather.

    Sorry, but I am using a Surf III GPS with it, from Seidio.

    So anyone using a standalone TomTom (preferably the GO 720) with the 755P and have the TomTom Plus features working 100%?

    I beleive that for some reason TOMTOM devices only work with DATA on GSM phones

    I've read a couple of forums where people have TomTom Plus services working with their Spring PPC 6800s and Moguls.

    Tomtom version 6.030 working on my 755p
    with Plus services..

    I had to 'hack' the Tomtom to work on 755p using the 680p hack. (See thread)
    Then Called Tomtom and got my new device ID registered and plus service working.

    The 5-way controls do not work though, only touch screen.. kind of annoying..

    I have both TomTom 6.030 and my TomTom 910 (hands free and data services both) working with the 755p. Not bragging, just noting that it can be done for those interested.
    yep.

    I think we know it can be done however we need to know the exact settings being Sprint isn't one of the preset options.

    Care to share your settings?

    Thanks for the info...

    What is TomTom 910? (Hands free service?)

    _______________________________________________

    I saw it now.. on the website.. I saw those small hand helds all over for sale at the stores.. but how does that connect to the 755?
    After dealing with TomTom in the past(Changing devices and needing new codes) and the maps being extreemly outdated .. I doubt I would buy another TomTom product..
    Trying to make best with what I blew the initial $$$$ with.. Would rather get a Garmin or something in the future..

    I'll provide whatever you need....

    But, what settings are you talking about? Details....

    Being Sprint isn't a default selection I have to manually enter all the connection details. I need to know what all those manual settings are.

    BTW, I have a TT510 that I upgraded to a 710 with TTS.

    Did you have to setup a dial up networking connection to do this? If so, when you're using the PLUS services, are you still able to use the phone handsfree feature of the GO 910 w/ the 755P? The 920T looks pretty nice, but if the TomTom Plus services don't work along with the handsfree bluetooth calling w/ the 755P then I'll go with a Garmin Nuvi 770.

    The TomTom 910 is this:
    http://www.tomtom.com/products/produ...egory=14&Lid=4

    And I originally did this with my 700p last year, so if I remember correctly I used the AT&T settings and then modified them to use the #777 no user name (or I may be remembering my Vista or Lifedrive dial up settings). I will try to remember to take a look and report back. It was not straight forward, so my original point was to keep trying, it will work even if it does not seem like it will.

    And no, I can either use the data services or the hands free phone features, not both at the same time. I can initiate a data service update (weather or traffic) and when finished and the hands free features work again. However IMHO the hands free stinks - I am not using an external mic so no one can ever hear me.

    From another post on this site:
    It worked for me too!
    Got TomTom Version 6.010 working on the 755p
    Ok...so after spending a great amount of time with both TomTom and Palm this morning and getting nowhere, I found a way to get it to work by following an idea from the 680 forum: http://discussion.treocentral.com/sh...ght=tomtom+680

    I downloaded the 680 patch found on the Palm's website: http://www.palm.com/us/support/downloads/gps_nav.html The zip file contains the following files:

    - Start.prc
    - Data.chk
    - Munich.bin

    I copied both the Data.chk and Munich.bin files into the TomTom folder on the SD Card as recommended. I did not copy the Start.prc file.

    That's it. You should be able to use TomTom 6.010 now. The only issue I have found so far is that the 5-way works only up and down when using TomTom. It does not work going left or right. But I am willing to put up with that while TomTom and Palm can get it right.

    Hope this helps.

    We aren't trying to get TomTom to run on the 755... we are trying to allow our stand alone TT unit to access the TT Plus features using the data from the 755.

    I have the exact same problem , and someone said they reinstalled it and the 5-way started working again.

    Can ANYONE confirm this?
    I will also try this to solve also..

    You would think TomTom would release an update for the 755p before trying to get money for updated maps..

    Updated maps out BTW:
