Ipod support works great, I've hooked up both a video ipod and an iphone.
Hands-free calls are always played over the internal speaker.
I'll have to look again but I thought the automatic volume adjustment was linked to your speed, not the ambient noise.?.?
I tried this again but did a little more research into my station selection. I finally found one that is reasonable to use for my commute. The sound quality is much better with the new station I selected. I have even decided to move my TomTom to the center of the windshield. That probably is helping with the reception problems. I used this web site to find the station: http://stationfinder.griffintechnology.com/Now I can plan to get the iPod cable and see how it sounds. I really don't want to go ripping the electronics out of my car to insert a new line in input. I think I can live with the FM transmitter as is. :D
quick question.. where did u guys get ur ipod cables from?
I think it is the same iPod connection cable as available for the 510/910.
quick question.. where did u guys get ur ipod cables from?Amazon.com sells them and so does TigerGPS.com, and if you don't live outside the USA, you can get it from Tomtom directly as well.
That is correct, doublestuff. You need an "open" frequency to broadcast over. You can't listen to a radio station and use the FM transmitter nor use two different FM transmitters broadcasting to the same station.The common way to use it is to play MP3 music from the TomTom and then send the voice prompts and music over the FM transmitter to your car stereo or just send the voice prompts without MP3 music and forgo any other audio source.
In my 2006 Honda Accord, the FM Transmitter does not work very well. I have an FM Transmitter for my iPod that works much better. The signal that the TomTom produces is very weak even with the volume set to 100%. I tried many different dead stations and none produce a clear signal for me. Unfortunately, the Accord doesn't have a cassette nor a line in port (at least not one that is easy accessible).
