Same here. Fit is perfect of course, but I can't connect using bluetooth and the car kit app doesn't indicate a GPS fix or that the phone is docked. It's as if it's not connected. I hope this can be corrected through a firmware update (if possible) for the car kit.

Same problem here.  Worked fine with my 3GS.  Got the adapter for the 4 and installed it.  My wife's 4 works fine but nothing happens when I dock the 4S.  I've even reset the device with by holding in the volume button.

 

Nothing.

I was able to get it working by placing a folded over pieve of paper behind the iPhone.  Looks like there must be a little difference, but I can't see it at all.  Maybe the adapter needs to be slightly thicker to get it to work.

 

Very odd.

Re: tomtom car kit iPhone 4S compatibility

You are right.  I got mine to work,  I took off the iphone 4 adapter and put 2 small shims under it and put it back on and now it works.  I guess the iphone 4s is a bit thinner then the iphone 4.

I'm also getting the same problem, looks like it is not compatible with the iPhone 4S.  I shall be using a basic window mount instead until Tomtom can offer a solution.

Can't get mine working too.

Would really appreciate it if you could give any more details of the shims you used and how you attached them etc.

 

Thanks,


Graz.
