Hi Everyone

This may have been covered before, however, I recently purchased a TOMTOM One XL and would like to make use of the data connection on my BlackBerry 8830 to use the various TOMTOM apps that require a bluetooth data connection.

I can pair the TOMTOM with the phone fine, however, I am unsure about the APN settings, including APN name, Dial code and Login Script that needs to be setup - It looks like the TOMTOM wants to use the phone as a modem, although i would have thought it easier to just use the GPRS data facility on the phone - Anyone got any ideas?
