I have a TomTom 720, had no problem initially pairing my iPhon3 3G. I have noticed that the TomTom will stop pairing with the phone about a week after placing in and syncing up the TomTom with the home computer. Once I re-sync the TomTom, it again pairs with my iPhone.
Well, Ive tryed everything i can think of... nothing. Totally disappointed with it. Its plays audio ie music, voice from tomtom app through the speaker with sound good but everytime i dock the iphone into the kit the message "This accessory is not made for the iphone" Aaaarr, Plus ive noticed that when the power is connected the power icon on my 3g doesn't change to the charging icon..... is this correct? i'll try to pair it to a different iphone tomorrow hopefully i'll have better luck. Thanks for all your feedback.
I purchased a Tomtom car kit on Saturday from AppleStore Sydney.
iPhone sits in it and charges fine and it nicely mounts on my windscreen. Yesterday (Sunday) I decided to read the instructions. I didn't even realise at first that it was a BlueTooth device.
I plugged it into a USB power supply in my home and tried to pair it. My iPhone wouldn't find it. Tried on the supplied USB power lead in my car; still no go.
I waited until an associate came in on Monday morn and tried his iPhone. I once saw it listed in the BlueTooth screen but couldn't successfully pair with it.
I took it into town to Apple and they were most helpful. We tried my iPhone and the customer support guy's (Anthony). We tried the Tomtom device I had returned and a new one off the shelf. Occasionally we'd see it listed but could never successfully pair and connect.
In the end we gave up and Apple processed a refund for me.
My kit will pair fine but when using the hands free kit for a phone call, the speaker cuts out constantly. I get about every other word from the person I am talking to. TomTom customer service has been no help with the issue. Guess I will be driving an hour back to the Apple Store for a refund.
Issue pairing tomtom & iphone 4 turned out to be my phone
I couldn't get my tomtom cradle to pair or charge my iphone 4 - turned out the issue was my iphone 4 and not the tomtom at all. Our local apple store replaced my iphone 4 no questions asked (they were the ones who determined the issue was the iphone, not tomtom).
