I have an iPhone SE and a TomTom Go Basic. They are paired over Bluetooth. The TomTom does not know about the WiFi connection to the phone. Yet traffic information is available as long as the hotspot is enabled. This is the workaround. Without enabling the hotspot the Bluetooth connection keeps dropping and no data flows. Hotspot on an iPhone supports a WiFi, Bluetooth or USB connection. It’s just a pain having to remember to turn the hotspot on and off.

So far, my temporary setup is working very favourably and there have been no traffic disconnections. Data usage appears to be about 1 Mb per hour.
I’ll continue using it this way over the next few days and will flag up any problems should they occur.
Hopefully TT will soon get the Bluetooth pairing matter rectified.
All the best and good luck. 🤞🏻

I agree that there have been other Bluetooth problems and Apple has some part to play but the issue has been highlighted for quite a while. What was TomTom doing when all the Developer Betas of iOS13 were out? I use applications/devices from other developers that have fixed BT issues but there appears to have been nothing yet from TomTom. The annoying aspect is that there is no meaningful dialogue from TomTom as to what is going on. What dialogue is happening with Apple?
I bought an expensive product that promised services. These are now not optimum or consistent despite the Golden Master of iOS 13 being out since mid-Sep20! We are already on iOS13.3 beta 3. As a real annoyance, I am still receiving marketing messages from TomTom saying how wonderful their products are and the ‘advanced’ services/functions that they provide.

Your comment suggests that Tomtom were the only business to experience a problem with Bluetooth connectivity with the introduction of IOS13 which is not the case as a search on the internet will show.. There are I believe other Apps and equipment which worked perfectly with IOS12 but did not once IOS13. is loaded on the relevant phone..
Based on that I assume it is likely that Tomtom may well will need the Assistance/Co-operation of Apple to find a resolution to the problem they are experiencing since Apple issued IOS13.. It is not the first time there have been Bluetooth Issues with an IOS version when it has first been issued.
