    I received my upgrade to TomTom Navigator 5 today. All looked good during the instal process, until:

    After clicking 'install the application', and selecting the SD card as the destination, a dialog box pops up saying 'Now HotSync to complete the installation'; it has a 'HotSync' button. Clicking on this (or the sync button on the Treo connector) then brings up another box: 'No Conduit Manager (Palm Desktop or Missing Sync) found, or the TomTom Conduit is not installed. Install a conduit manager and copy the TomTom Conduit from the application bundle to the conduits folder'.

    However...

    Palm Desktop is installed. TomTom Conduit is in the conduits folder, though it has a different icon to all the other conduits. I can't find a way to get into the 'application bundle' anyway - this sounds like Windoze stuff.

    It is possible to initiate a HotSync in the usual way, but no TomTom stuff is transferred.

    I've tried syncing with and without the iSync conduit enabled, rebooting the Mac, resetting the Treo and so on. I don't have Missing Sync. I'm using a G4 PowerBook 1.5Ghz, and OS10.4.1

    If anyone else has experienced this, or has any ideas, I'd like to hear them. Otherwise, I suppose it'll mean waiting days for a response from TomTom Tech Support....

    I may have found the answer to my own question, on a Dutch Palm forum. A user with the same problem as me emailed TomTom support.

    The answer he received, on 17 June, translated by my Dutch-speaking fiancee (I always knew it'd be useful!):

    "The TomTom Navigator 5 software is not yet compatible with the Mac OS. A driver (sic) will soon be available on our website to make it possible to install TomTom Navigator 5 wia an Apple."

    This directly contradicts TomTom's written statement to me when I queried compatibility before buying the upgrade. Am I alone in thinking this is a shabby way to do business?

    I shall now have to find someone who'll let me use a Windoze machine to install from.

    The working Mac installer:

    Not easy to find on their website - it's under TT GO rather than Nav 5.

    I suspect you have switched the URL-text and the URL in your post above

    Have you tested this? Does it work with the Treo? I wonder if it's the same thing as TamTam (See http://www.equinux.com/us/products/moresw/tamtam.html), which does not work with a Treo.

    In any event, TomTom has previously indicated that TomTom Navigator 5 will have a Mac installer.

    The upgrade did indeed come with a Mac installer, which simply doesn't work, necessitating a long wait on the phone for Tech Support.

    However, using the 'new' installer I now have Navigator 5 on my Treo 650. Installing the maps took a long time, but it's now working well and really rather impressive - much better than my previous setup on an iPaq (before I came back to Palm)!

    I noted that if using SilverScreen, the Nav 5 icon doesn't show up, for some reason.

    This is awesome news. I hate pulling out the old Winblows laptop for things.

    If I just want to upgrade my Navigator 2004 application to the new Navigator 5, btu keep my old maps, can I do that?

    Where did you find the working installer? The link to the TomTom Go product seems to be a backup utility only.

    Thanks
