TomTom, BT GPS and BT Headset
I've got a problem that I'd like to know if anyone else is experiencing.
I am running TomTom using a bluetooth gps receiver (instructions found on this site to get the damn thing to work in the first place, much appreciated). When this is all I am doing, everything is great, really fast, smooth. As I do a lot of long journeys, I notice that the position update starts slowing down the further I go, but this is still fine.
When I turn on my headset, I start to get a serious lag between my true position and where TomTom is reporting I am (I know which one to trust though, so I don't turn off the motorway a mile too late :wink: ). The starts slight, but then gets really stupid really quickly, resulting in the map being a mile or more out after a minute or two.
I have scoured this and other sites to see if anyone else is getting this problem and have so far found nothing. I have reverted to using a wire until I can get this solved.
The sound ports through to the headset fine, I can make calls, voice command works (most of the time). The headset is a BlueTrek G2, the GPS receiver I am not sure of as it came with no make or model number from eBay.
Could it be a memory issue? I generally have about 15MB program memory free. TT does drop out every once in a while but not in any pattern, whereas the lag issue always happens as soon as I connect the headset. Could it be the BT devices are operating on the same frequency (I have no idea if this is a rubbish suggestion, just something I thought of)
Does anyone know about this? Any suggestions greatly appreciated. In the meantime, I will be tied to my phone while driving.
