Hi

I have a query with regard to the iPhone 5 when being used as a 'satnav' with TomTom software.

Since upgrading to the latest (from around May 2012) system software, I was able to launch the TomTom software on the iPhone and choose AUX and the voice instructions would be fed through the car speakers but, yesterday when I tried it, the music on my iPhone started playing as soon as I chose AUX and I could not hear the satnav voice.

Is there anyway to stop the music from starting when I am using the iPhone as a satnav?

Also, is there a newer USB software update available?

Regards

I don't have TomTom but use Waze, and that comes on over the radio, if you want nothing but voice instructions have you tried setting it to Line in, as soon as you select USB or Bluetooth it starts playing that source.

Don't know how much you paid for the TomTom app, but if you had come on here beforehand I would have warned you against it. The 'maps app' that comes free with the ipone5 is great and works a charm, it plays my music and mutes it automatically for a couple of seconds when the app is telling me the directions and then puts the music back on.

Try it with the free app and see what you think
