    When I first got my phone, I looked into the possibility of getting TomTom
    to run on it, but everything I've read seems to be saying that it needs an
    external bluetooth GPS because TomTom does not utilise the internal GPS
    receiver. Does anyone know if this is still the case, or have TomTom
    released a newer version that does?

    There is a cracked version of TT's latest version (6.02) that supports
    internal GPS receiver. No need to do anything to your phone - simply install
    this version instead of the official one. If you don't have a moral problem
    with it then just google for "tomtom internal gps cracked"

    I came up with a Youtube link seeming to show that, and several forums (and
    comments on the Youtube page saying that it was a fake. Not really keen on
    installing cracked software on my phone anyway in case it breaks it or has a
    virus - are there antivirus for phones? Don't know why TT don't sort it out,
    after all, this is a popular phone make and model for using their software
    on, and it's been a known issue since this phone was released - in 2007?

    Think I'll just stick with my PDA TomTom - would have been handy if I'm out
    and about as don't always have my PDA with me, and battery life on that
    isn't great, but always have the phone.

    I know for certain that it is NOT a fake, and it does work without any
    problem.

    It is, of course, up to you whether to use an illegal copy, or not.

    Further research seems to indicate that it will not work without the network
    assisted GPS positioning (along with the integrated GPS) activated,
    something that I'm reluctant to have switched on to avoid the inevitable
    data costs.
