It looks like you're experiencing a different type of problem than everyone else here. Keep us updated on your progress or if you find a solution. I was one of the lucky ones with my adapter working with my my 4 and 4s on ios5.
I came here because the street names on my 3d map keep disappearing but I'm glad to find solutions to other people's problems. You never know when you'll run into the same problem so it's good to see solutions before hand.

I have the same problem, but with a 3gs. thickness shouldn't be a problem here. I will try on my brother's car kit, in a different car, usgin hard reset(hold home+lock until apple logo appears, dusting off, etc)
the thing is this has just started RIGHT AFTER upgrading to ios 5. can't downgrade either.
Will tomtom do a firmware upgrade ?

Right, this is what worked for me;
I had a iPhone 4 running ios 5 and all was fine. Since upgrading my to 4s my TomTom car kit wouldnt regognise the new phone.
Works a treat

To Kao, you say that your iPhone 4 on IOS 5 works in the car kit, what's the firmware version of your car kit?
The Car Kit Tool app tells me that mine is 0.0.4, model 4UUB4
I also tells me that it's docked and gets a GPS fix, yet doesn't charge in the car kit.

Model No. 4UUB4
I've tested two verizon iphone 4 running ios5, one att iphone 4 running ios5, and my own att iphone 4s running ios5. It all works as normal (minus the disappearing street names on the 3d map). The iphones were running ios 4.3.5 prior to updating to ios5.
Is the bluetooth connecting? I'm starting to lean towards not enough power going into the tomtom unit to charge the iphone. I recall some people were having trouble charging their ipads on a computer usb port while using it at the same time and how it would only charge if they turned the device off.

Yesterday I went to replace my tomtom car kit, went two rounds with the car, and the problem didn't occur. doh. I suppose I should be happy then ? I still have about 2 months warranty, and I think the car kit bloody knows that
