    Have you enabled the bluetooth tethering on your Phone?
    Pair it out of Wifi range, because wifi has priority over bluetooth

    Also suggest checking if there are other bluetooth connections to your phone trying to do the same thing (use internet data) at the same time. It then becomes an issue of "which device grabs your phone's attention first". (That's a Bluetooth limitation, not a TomTom one.) If you have other devices paired try disconnecting from them and re-pairing your phone to the TomTom. The results of that can narrow down the problem.
