Hi. Bought this yesterday as I'm a coach driver and wanted to be ahead of traffic as I often enter Birmingham.

Only the Satnav says it's unable to connect to my phone after I try to tether them. I can't work out what is wrong. My phone tethers to other devices like my coach perfectly fine yet cannot connect to this.

    Is the phone tethered to the coach at the same time? Bluetooth can only have one data connection open at a time. You can try tethering your phone to the TomTom via WiFi if you need to be also tethered to your coach with a bluetooth data connection.

    I've done what the link says and still nothing. I disconnected my phone from my watch so nothing was connected and had the same result.

    My Phone is connected to my Garmin watch, to my car (media, phone) , to my Plantronics headset (phone) and tethered to my TT Go Discover.

    All at the same time, and all on bluetooth.

    So it can done.

    Yes, that's fine. You have an audio connection and a streaming media connection. The TomTom uses a data connection, so it's a different type of connection. The Garmin watch does occasionally use data but just a short spurt via an app so it shouldn't be an issue.
