    :)
    So on my memory card I have the following folders that relate to tomtom6

    Australia-Map
    Raster
    Tomtom
    Voices
    Zip

    Once all that was done. I restarted my phone and the phone picked up the program. Then install it via the application manager

    yep, works fantastic, got a nokia bh-800, paired it with the phone the first time i turned it on, now every time i turn it on the phone auto connects to it in seconds... overall very happy! (great battery life as well)

    also got a qstarz double 32 (32 hour battery, 32 satellite) gps receiver, this is by far the best reciever i have used, locks on satellites in under 30 seconds from a cold start in my experiences, under 1 second on warm start, and its extremely accurate, was worth the extra money over the cheaper units... used it with both tomtom6 and smart2go, works fine with both but i prefer tomtom6 :)

    Well... just learnt the hard way that these phonesNEED a case.

    Cracked the screen for being in my pocket for no more than 5 mins. put it in my pocket, sat down, got up t oanswer a call and i had a cracked screen.

    dont know what it hit if it did at all, but now bloody optus are going to charge me $50 or $165 depending on if its a replacement part or replacement phone.
    So much for paying the extra each week for insurance - thats bs :p

    Havent had this phone for 3 weeks yet, and the bastard already has a crack in it.

    Yay spend the next 10 days w'out a phone :)

    Hmm I haven't had a cracked screen yet and i'm only using a soft silicone case. Maybe don't put it with other things in your pockets? (Possibly back pockets) sorry to hear either way :(

    its pressure that cracks the screen in your pocket. standing, your pockets arent tight (unless you're a stupid fucking useless emo wearing spray-on girls jeans). when you sit down though, often, the material is stretched taught, and this presure, in the right circumstances, will find the weakest point on your phone to exude itself; the screen. thats why a silicone case probably wont do as much as a hard plast cse to protect it..... sorry bout to hear about the screen man :thumbdn:

    Nah with all phones i have, they are the only thing to sit in my pocket. keys, smokes, even my lighter/matches are sat in different pockets to my phone. usually goes in my shirt pocket if i have one.

    Gotta love irony. my plastic cover for the phone arrived today.

    heh..

    better late than never

    yeah, ive got the poo's.

    just seems sily to pay a premium, its not a car or a house!

    and well, considering this is the first phone that has been accidentally damaged - not broken (owned for less than 2 months - took it out of my pocket and it was cracked) that just screams shitty workmanship. I owned a P900 touchscreen with the flip removed, and for the year and a half that i owned it, i had no problems iwth the screen.

    Come 1 month or so of owning a N73, im now without a phone for a week or two and the tightarses at the optus shop dont have a spare phone for me to use for the next 10 days, so im left high and dry!
