I've just got a go5200 with built in sim with the soul purpose of getting live traffic updates so I didn't need to use my Bluetooth on phone BUT when i go into setting's, it shows information sharing is enabled etc etc but when looking at GPRS, it shows disconnected !
Is there a phone number that you can actually talk to somebody in the UK rather than the useless chatbot ?
( I am logged into my account and have satnav plugged into laptop if that makes a difference ? )

    Hi

    whippet05
    Welcome to the site....
    GPRS SIM connection on the Tomtom Live devices....
    There are 3 Data connection options that can have a higher/priority/override the Built-in GPRS SIM....
    To check the Data Connection status....
    Tap 4Dot (.... Menu) --> Setting --> System --> About…
    Scroll down to Data Connection & GPRS Status....
    What does the device report...???
    Is the GPRS Status... Connected ???
