Answers
  • I don't have a TomTom to experiment with, but with bluetooth, you have a sending and recieving side. The same earphone that you use on your phone can be connected to your computer if you wish. Just turn the bluetooth on in the TomTom and check the computer to see if it finds the signal.

  • BlueTooth identifies what type of device it is. So on the PC it identifies itself as a computer. The TomTom will connect with a phone, not a computer. Hence the reason I wanted the computer to look like a phone.

  • Sorry, guess I misunderstood, and, since I don't have a TomTom, I didn't realize it was restricted. Just wondering though, if the computer was tethered to a 3g cell phone, would that would make a difference?

    As I understand it the TomTom would see the cell phone, but not the PC.
    What I want is how to configure a pc to pretend it's a cell phone.

  • Actually, it's less about the device, and more about the advertised services. I'm not entirely sure what service the TomTom is looking for, but you will need your pc to announce that it offers that service. I personally have not done that much work with blue tooth, but I would imagine that you must be able to find or write plugins for your bluetooth daemon to advertise additional services.
