Put GPS Program port on COM0 or COM4 in External GPS (Start -> Settings -> System) and in TomTom select for GPS device: Other NMEA device. Best.

Seemss 2 be lyke an incomplete mobile as there is no wifi being such large in size and internal gps not workin....not upto the mark 4 buying....
Somebody please write a review on this phone !!!
I'm also having trouble with the GPS. I tied 2 softwares: IGO and MIO, but none of them are recognizng the internal GPS.
Just got hold of one, v nice, pity no wifi, but having trouble getting GPS going, any help gratefully received.
Wifi's been almost everywhere in my place nowadays, so i guess it would be fun if this phone's been equipped with at least wifi, i dont care much about 3g coz it will cost me more if i want to surf the net, but with wifi i can surf at no extra cost.. Design looks good though..
Do you have the link to download the THUMB PAD software ? Coz i tried to google it but I could not find it ... thanks !
Good phone .. looks hot .. slim .. as every other thing in this world .. it has some drawbacks .. come on guys ... if everything in given in 1 phone ... why wud u buy any other phone .. Company Policy guys .. be a smart consumer .. LOL ..
reg, typing SMS while standing in train, you have a software available called thumb pad which you can install in this Windows Mobile.
This thumb pad software will replicate the number pad on your mobile screen. now you can type SMS like any other mobile with keypad.
Now, thats the power of Windows !!!
this phone dost have gps in build
this device is a big flop coz there is no 3G support for high speed internet access or video calling.
even a mid-level to low-level spec model from nokia has 3G nowadays.
How do you SMS people standing in a train or bus ? Do you have always to use a stylus for everything ? Or is there a sliding keyboard ? Not easy to tell....
it cost $ 465 here in Dubai..
so nice ,thin and the design is vry good ..and the fusion is nt bad 2 ..but how much the price in the market?
When is HTC going to run out of the TI OMAP 200 MHz CPU stock. 80 % of their devices use that CPU. No doubt its a very reliable chipset, But its too slow.
the cost of buying a micro-sd wifi will actually make buying a higher end PDA phone more viable.
wifi is free in my country for almost all public areas :)
can i just add that this email was sent on my mobile HTC touch with wifi connection using my wireless router and it hasn't cost me any mobile network time so to the guy that said I get 30mins of free network time I get it free for life!!!!!
As regarding this phone has no wifi.In this technology world of today this is unbelievable wifi is the way forward most places today give you free wifi or you can hook up to somebody elses wireless network (if its not security enabled) with skype you can also download the software to your mobile. I just wish that wifi had a faster connection.
people who say 'oh it has not got no wifi' really, how often does this get used? my mobile contract with voda phone gives me free interenet, why would you pay 5.00 for 30 mins wi fi time?? most users shouldn't be put off by lack of wifi, i'd guess that most people hardly use wifi in an average day!!! great unit!!!
