When I first got my phone, I looked into the possibility of getting TomTom
to run on it, but everything I've read seems to be saying that it needs an
external bluetooth GPS because TomTom does not utilise the internal GPS
receiver. Does anyone know if this is still the case, or have TomTom
released a newer version that does?

There is a cracked version of TT's latest version (6.02) that supports
internal GPS receiver. No need to do anything to your phone - simply install
this version instead of the official one. If you don't have a moral problem
with it then just google for "tomtom internal gps cracked"

I came up with a Youtube link seeming to show that, and several forums (and
comments on the Youtube page saying that it was a fake. Not really keen on
installing cracked software on my phone anyway in case it breaks it or has a
virus - are there antivirus for phones? Don't know why TT don't sort it out,
after all, this is a popular phone make and model for using their software
on, and it's been a known issue since this phone was released - in 2007?

Think I'll just stick with my PDA TomTom - would have been handy if I'm out
and about as don't always have my PDA with me, and battery life on that
isn't great, but always have the phone.

I know for certain that it is NOT a fake, and it does work without any
problem.

It is, of course, up to you whether to use an illegal copy, or not.

Further research seems to indicate that it will not work without the network
assisted GPS positioning (along with the integrated GPS) activated,
something that I'm reluctant to have switched on to avoid the inevitable
data costs.
