Mail for help.Help!!

Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)
Remember me:
👁 durr, I forgot...
Or: Register

TomTom Instructions to Bluetooth Earpiece

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
If anyone has a TomTom sat nav and thought it might be a good idea to get the instructions piped directly to one's ear rather than disturb the passengers, say on a night drive to the Alps...

It can be done for just over a tenner.

You might think that any old bluetooth earpiece would work, but A2DP compatible devices appear to be quite rare. The TomTom calls them a HiFi Stereo device - presumably for folk who want to hear music over headphones wirelessly.

I've just got a natty little device about the size of a keyfob, that comes with both an in-ear earpiece and a pair of in-ear headphones (both work fine).

You can get them from EBay: Slim A2DP Stereo Bluetooth Headphone Headset (Black) (9 days delivery for me)

It's supposed to last for 10 hours continuous use for music, so with occasional TomTom instructions one would suppose it shouldn't give up just as you're driving through Chambery, but heck by that time who cares if you have to play it over the speaker?

Once you get it you need to charge it for a few hours, then press the bluetooth button for a couple of seconds to go into match mode, then via TomTom Speaker Preferences select the Bluetooth hifi stereo option for instructions, and it'll scan for the device, find it, and then it's just a few clicks on ok, try a test message, and then you don't need to do it again. When the device is on and in range it'll be used, if not the instructions come over the speaker.

Can't you just turn the vol down, or even off and look for the turn symbols, when they pop up?

 Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name, see?

bar shaker, yes you can, but if you're whizzing along a motorway when instructions are few and far between, it's nicer/safer to keep one's eyes on the road and not have to keep an eye on the TomTom's screen.
