Thumbs up BB 7290 & TomTom GO 700 successfully paired!

Please Login to Remove!

Hi all

I was reading on this forum a while back that no-one has had much success pairing the BB 7290 with the TomTom GO 700.

Happy to report that I have been able to pair the two devices and make calls.

I had to upgrade both of them though - here are the details:

BB 7290 - v4.0.2.49
TomTom v5.4.2

My phone asked me to enter the PIN, I entered 0000 and hey presto!

The only thing that I wasn't able to do was download the phone book into the TomTom, so seeing as my phone is synchronized with my Outlook Contacts, I exported my Outlook Contacts to a CSV file, then copied the CSV file to the TomTom using my USB connection - named the file CONTACTS with no extension. I was able to dial from my TomTom phonebook, and get named CallerID when someone from my contacts list called me.

Hope this helps someone.

Can you download traffic and weather with your 8700 on the TomTom?
