I installed Erofich´s WM 6.1 Pro ROM V2 and I also installed TomTom.
Everything is working except the Bluetooth GPS Receiver.
Both devices (Receiver and Phone) are on and visible but the Telephone can not find the GPS Receiver.

The Receiver is working perfectly with my Diamond but not with the 8500.

Can anyone help me with that? (I read something about an extra external gps applet)

Yeah you are right but at first I have to pair the Receiver with the Phone (Add Device) and this is the point that is not working.

Didnt you paired your Receiver with the Phone first?

I use TomTom on the Standard version and the program pair the devices by it self as mentioned before... Just launch TomTom and it will set automaticaly, if not, do it manually. Go to the GPS Configure screen in TomTom following this steps:
Main Menu>Change preferences>next>next>next>Show GPS status>Configure

Hope it solves your problem...

Smile Maybe...
.... this helps:

got exactly the same prob.

difference between wm5.2/6.1:

you may need to manually configure a outgoing serial port for your bt-gprs connection as follows:


Select Your BT-GPS


check "Serial Port"

Now Your back to the BT-Device Menu:

Menu/Com Ports/Menu/New Outgoing Port/Select BT-GPS/Select Com"X"/Done

Now go to TomTom's GPS Settings an select your Com"X"

This should do.

Good Luck!


devices need to be successfully paired first, of course
