Getting a HTC 620 phone tomorrow (windows mobile 5) do I need any special hardware to use satnav on this phone, or can I just buy/download the relevant TomTom software and thats it?
Cheers in advance

Ordinary TomTom is fine. Just make sure its for Windows and not symbian or "one".

Cheers, wasn't sure what the score was. TomTom the best one then? 1st time with a phone like this normally have a symbian based Nokia. Have some rep!

im pretty sure its not got a built in gps (correct me if im wrong?) so you ll need a bluetooth gps too.
#4
I think you'll need to get a Bluetooth GPS unit.
TomTom Speed Camera Spoken Alerts FTW!

Indeed. Just checked and the phoned doesnt have inbuilt GPS - but does have bluetooth - so as has been suggested, you will also need a bluetooth GPS as well.

balls to that, almost as cheap to just buy a satnav unit. Might just ebay it then. Stick with my N80

...and IIRC, you need the *smartphone* version (not the standard PocketPC version...

Don't be discouraged - £30 for a decent BT GPS off fleabay and a few clicks on any popular torrent site and you are good to go!

im pretty sure bluetooth receivers are cheap as chips now, but obviously tomtom isnt and i doubt you ll get mucg for it on ebay as its a bit behind the current smartphones really.
#11
Will look at that, was gonna ask for my rep back too guv, cos of your duff info.:-D
#12
Still gotta make a profit on it, didn't pay nowt for it so can't lose really.
#13
nope thats very true (didnt mean any offence about the phone by the way!) ive had a few problems recently selling phones on ebay (vario3 and an n95) so keep your eye out for scammers for phones if you do sell it!
#14
No offence taken. Got it from my employer for nothing so like I said can't lose really

Really do consider keeping it, one box to shove in ur pocket or carry on belt best move i made
was sick of forgetting one on site/incar disconnecting both from chargers real pain 1 box4all ftw
wouldnt go back to seperate phone n gps ever

Will have a look at the options, don't really wanna pay more setting it up than I could get a standalone satnav for. Cheers for the advice.
