Blutooth connections will not work with Iphone XS Rider 500
I swore I would never buy another Tomtom device after all the problems getting My Rider 2013 to work again (eventually fixed, though it took months) but I went ahead and bought a new Rider 500 ...
Of course it will not correctly Bluetooth to my Iphone XS running 13.3.1. That means the principal reasons I upgraded to get:
Traffic, messages and communication will not work. It matters not if I use the App or do it direct.
Reading other threads, they say its a more efficient Bluetooth stack at fault and not them - not acceptable. They KNOW this "other" BT exists, make your devices work with it. Everyone else has.
Its yet another case of Tomtom shoving out basically shoddy devices and blaming someone else as they are not compatible.
EVERYTHING else I want to connect to works with the Iphone XS - everything except the one new Tomtom Rider purchase.
I guess I could send this back and buy what I ought to have done to start with, a Garmin Nuvo, (frankly the only reason I didn't was the thickness of the Nuvo cabling) - but as I have this all wired in now, is there even the faintest chance that TT will ever get their act together and make the device fit for purpose within my lifetime ?
I am of course on the latest software update on Iphone and on Rider.
I have tried the workarounds suggested in other similar complaint threads and no joy.
I can get traffic displayed on wifi (hotspot) but that does not fix the message and communication issues.
Why is it always a struggle with TT - even their damned website is full of error messages.
Not a happy bunny ...
