    Installing Tomtom on Windows CE 5.0 or CE 6.0

    Hiya guys,

    I have just brought myself a new Passat. And am intending to change the unit to a OEM unit which does well alot more than my current unit. It comes with built in gps etc with sat nav but am a long time user of Tomtom so was wondering whether someone could help.

    The link for the item is

    2 Din Car DVD/GPS/DVB Player VW GOLF/SCIROCCO/PASSAT on eBay (end time 27-Mar-10 14:45:35 GMT)

    It has a SD Card slot amongst other things which can be used to install Tomtom I have been told. Has anyone brought a similar device and installed Tomtom any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Or maybe you have another device with Windows CE 6.0 or similar on it and have installed Tomtom on it? Would love to hear from you.

    Thanks and Kindest Regards

    Use the same tomtom as the navigo thread mate.

    Only thing you may need to fraff around with is the com port settings but first try with default settings.

    But i know for sure WIN CE is tomtom compatible. (7.45 i think. not tried 7.9 but imsure it probably will work).

    Give me a shout once you got it i'll help you out if you need

    Hiya bud,

    Thanks for your post. Having done further research I have established it is definitely compatible and am looking forward to trying it out.

    I have ordered the item today and should be here in no more than 14 days and will be in contact if I have any problems.

    Am so accustomed you using Tomtom I just dont like anything else even though the unit comes with igo 8 which I've been told is excellent.

    By the way if anyone else has a passat and wants one of these units, the guy not only did me an excellent price but have to admit the customer service was unbelievable. Very very helpful guy.

    Thanks and Kindest regards

    Imran

    Igo's got a pretty good rep but if you're used to TT I'd go with it. Rough rule of thumb is if it's got a card slot (normally SD) it can be hacked to run TT. Plus no real danger of bricking the unit if you keep the original card & play with another one.

    Yeah have heard good things about igo so will try that before reverting to tomtom.

    I'm used to messing with tomtom on mobile phones, like i have on my current x1. Stopped messing around with pdas so thought i'd ask first, but like your rule of thumb definitely the best way to put it.

    I will no doubt be back to report how it goes and maybe asking for some help if I get really stuck.

    Thanks for the reply bud.

    Hiya mate, for the moment I have installed TomTom 6. I simply put all the files straight onto SD Card and it worked. Installed the speed cameras and zip folder and its excellent at the moment.

    Am pushed for time at the moment, but am definitely going to mess about with tomtom 7 but am happy for now. I did try igo8 it looked amazing and seemed to be running great, but it didnt have postcode search which is important for me. Maybe there is a version with it but i simply dont know as dont have much experience of it.

    If you need any help give me a heads up matey.

    Re: Installing Tomtom on Windows CE 5.0 or CE 6.0

    Hi all. I also have bought an double din radio from Chine for Toyota Avensis.
    I have alwayes used TomTom, and this car radio should be able to run TomTom 7, but I can't get it working. The Carradio used WIN CE 6.00 and use a SD card for navigation.
    It works OK with IGO, but TomTom I know for weel and would like it to run TT on the car radio. I have downloaded different forms of TT, and I can start TT up, but can not activate card. I have tried a version called mobilenavigation.exe, this could find card, but a error mesage "Not enough memory" was written, and then program stopped.
    Can someone explain what version of TT we have to use for those China radioes? I mean is it PDA or PNA or mobile, and where can we download test version ? Thanks a lot all.
    Regards
    PH

    On my iGo8 I can do postcode search in the "City" dialog (ie find place, then put the postcode instead of the City name). Hope that helps someone!
