    Interesting... Have not heard of this till this. I do not know if it will work or not on BT. I can try on my phone, but I really suspect the Wi-Fi has to be enabled to get internet.


    Update... In researching this, this was the older method of connecting before Wi-Fi Hotspots.

    Once you have paired to the tablet, on your phone look in the Blue Tooth menu and see if you have an option to Connect to Network.

    Thanks,
    Mark

    Hi Mark, my TND520 kind of crashed on me yesterday. After I enter a destination, a box pops up saying Routing Problem, no legal route can be found. I haven't updated it for a while, I don't know if that will help

    I lost the original charger for my 1st 730 and I have tried every charger and USB cable/charge port sold at truck stops and Wally World and I can tell you that the 730 is very, very picky about its charging cable. None of them really worked, even the 2.4 amp ones. It would do all sorts of crazy crap no matter what cord I tried. I thought I had fried it so I bought another 730. I used the charge cable that came with the new one and now the old one works flawlessly.

    So unless you have better luck than me, you might as well pony up and get an OEM charger for it directly from RM.

    My 2 pennies.

    Mark, I spoke with Jackie at RM the other day about my TND80 doing some wonky things. She told me an update is forthcoming, but the main servers were offline at the time for maintenance. Hoping it does correct issues like the no GPS icon popping up when there is nothing obstructing the view (seeks to happen a lot up north on 287 in Jersey and New York. And now it won't even tell me my route has tolls. I have changed nothing in the settings, just odd that it started doing this.

    Did you try it again in Car mode? If it routes then it is possibly a truck restriction.

    Thanks,
    Mark

    5" = 5vdc@1.5amps
    7" = 5vdc@2.5amps

    Black screen, white screen, lines in screen, etc.. the 7" had a HD screen and requires more power.

    Thanks,
    Mark

    Servers were for the TND's, not the tablets.

    PM me. I can send you the flash for the 80 tablet. Just be aware if you need anything off of it from the TND side, let me know. The flash will erase everything.

    Thanks,
    Mark
