I now have an iphone 3g and the tomtom app with tomtom car kit.
My question is the iphone supposed to answer automatic when you resive a call when in the cradle and tomtom nav app is running. the phone is paired via bluetooth with the cradle.
I cant find any settings to allow auto answer and i would have thought it should have as i dont want to have to answer manualy as i like to keep my eyes on the road ahead.

I haven't found such a setting myself either. I have paired the iphone to my TomTom and that can be set to answer automatically (and it's better volume and sound quality). You could do the same with your GO500.

Thank for your reply Dennis, i had problems with the bluetooth on my 500 it just would not pair with device, from what i have read the iphone kit is hands free so it should answer a call.
I will keep playing with it and see if i can get it to work.
Cheers mate.

The TomTom car kit certainly does handle phone calls - my only gripe with it (apart from no auto answer) is the volume just isn't good enough for my hearing. I'm surprised the 500 doesn't pair with the iPhone - my 700 did so without a murmur - course, it can't do texts, unfortunately.

I actually have my iPhone paired (Bluetooth) with three devices - the TT Car Kit, my GO550 Live and a "Visor Go" bluetooth thing and switch from one to the other depending on circumstances.

Good mornig Dennis,
I am going to try my 500 again to see if i can pair it with the iphone (when i get back home sometme today) it used to work fine with my old nokia so it could have been the nokia at fault.
Best Regards.
Trevor.

Ah, the good old Nokia - I have forced myself to stick my 6230i away in a side pocket in the van and have committed to the iPhone. But it's still there (and going abroad on holiday next week!) ready charged up permanently for if I decide I want full functionality back again. So's the 700! Wink
