Found 20th Jun 2011
OK, so I'm one of the may people who bought the TomTom car kit advertised the other week. I got it for my dad as a father's day present.

He has a Touch, model 1 and the kit works for that, however, he'd rather not spend £50 on the TomTom software and would prefer to download NavFree or something similar.

NavFree say's it's not compatible when he downloads it.

The touch is non-jailbroken (he's 73 years of age so let's keep it simple).

Any suggestion?

I've told him to try and install the tomtom car kit app first and then try again.

Does anyone know of any cheap (£1-£3) apps that work on the model 1?

I think he has but I've asked him to check, thanks.

Cant you jailbreak it for him, once it's done all you'll need is 2 apps. Installous, App Sync.

i had to buy an upgraded software for mine to work with some games and stuff.

cost 2.99 on itunes - so was just thinking it could have been that.

I've not even done mine, sounds a little scary but as I guess there's no more iOS updates it might be worth a try.

What's the best Jailbreak for this device?

I got my ipod touch v2 .jailbroken .because I bought the car kit for £20 . Downloaded tomtom from incidiuos as I weren't paying £40 . And works a treat.

Yes, but it's a touch 1, I think I'm snookered!

E-bay here we come.
