SI thought Bluetooth was just Bluetooth these days :cry:
As another datapoint I have a Samsung i730 (a pda smart phone running WM5). I have no complaints about the mic or speaker when using the 720 as a handfree device.
Any idea if tomtom is looking into doing something similar?
Hi tim, after trying 6 new tomtom go 720's I found one at bestbuy that had a good working mike and now all people I call can hear me.
Knowing I can not get my text messages is leaning me towards the 910
Does anyone else have a Sony phone working ok? There's none on the 720 list, now that I'm looking at it: http://www.tomtom.com/phones/?intProduct=20
J4. In the PDF manual, it states that you can use voice commands to enter an address to navigate to. That function is not working and not in the menu to select. Basically, The support for the new TomTom 720 is not there and the corrections for problems noted have not been fixed at this time. The support staff do not seem to know enough about what to do to correct problems and can only answer that Tomtom is working on the problem.
Also it took me FOREVER to finally get my AT&T Treo to pair with the Go 720 for voice calling. It seems to work okay, but today when I got a call, the Go720 never showed that a call was coming in, and it doesn't always seem to pair up with the phone when I get in the car. :( I'd consider trying a RAZR v3 instead if that paired reliably and got good reception.I could pick one up for like $20, but I don't want to spend any more than that.
QuestionWhy can’t I bond/pair my TomTom device with my Motorola mobile phone?AnswerMost Motorola mobile phones can only remain discoverable by other Bluetooth devices for a period of 60 seconds. Occasionally this period is too short to complete the pairing process with a TomTom device.To overcome this do the following: 1. On the phone, select: Menu > Settings > Connection > Bluetooth Link > Setup > Find Me 2. On your TomTom device do one of the following: * ONE family, GO, GO300 From the main menu tap Connect to phone. * GO family, RIDER family From the main menu tap Mobile phone > Connect to your phone > Yes The display on the TomTom device now shows your mobile phone 3. On the phone, repeat: Menu > Settings > Connection > Bluetooth Link > Setup > Find Me 4. Immediately select your phone on the TomTom device. The TomTom device now initiates the bonding.
Hi tim, after trying 6 new tomtom go 720's I found one at bestbuy that had a good working mike and now all people I call can hear me. I use a motorola v3 to connect to the tomtom. 1 of out 6 worked. The FM works, but you have to turn the stereo up a bit to hear it well. Thanks for your review. Love this new 720.
what features on the phone is it exactly looking for?
I've seen what you describe a couple of times with different VZW phones, and some of them I was able (after several frustrating hours of trial and error) to get them to pair. What will sometimes work is if you try to initiate pairing from both devices at the same time. For example in the instructions you are always having the TT device looking for the phone. You can also have the phone look for the TT device (which won't help by itself) however I've found that by setting both to look for each other at almost the same time that sometimes they communicate better.
- when you said you got some VW phones to work after hours of trial and error, what different ways did you try?
... my problems occur while the TT searches the phone's features(after it correctly searched for and found my phone) and while I try to pair the two from the phone. I am able to get both devices to recognize each other, but I cannot get past 10% of the phone feature check on the TT and I cannot get the two to pair from the phone... nothing works past that on either device. I'm having exactly the same problem with exactly the same phone as RAH823. I'm guessing the bluetooth profiles are not compatible. If anyone ever solves this with the TomTom 720 and the Samsung u740, please say how you did it. Thanks!
