    Question Tom Tom GO 910 Fitting?

    I am considering buying a Tom Tom GO 910, as it has sat nav, bluetooth handsfree kit and an MP3 player

    I was wondering if anyone has fitted one of these in their Vec C, as I would like to get it professionally done, including exterior mobile and sat nav antennas, and connection to my 2005CD stereo for phone and mp3 playback.
    I would also want a fixed dash mount rather than the suction cup on the window.

    The unit is quite expensive (best price around £270), and I imagine the fitting will be at least £100, but definitely worth thinking about

    Any help or comments would be appreciated

    Just had a look, and the audio cable supplied has a standard audio jack for connection to the car stereo, I know the 2005CD does not have one of these sockets, but is there a way of connecting directly to the back of the unit?

    I have a 910 and it is great on the window mount. I also have the FM transmitter mount so you just tune the radio in

    Trouble is I have tried those FM transmitters before and the sound quality was rubbish
    What stereo do you have, and how good is the sound quality?

    I use one, and don't have to retune at all between home (Mansfield) and work (Leicestershire) - I use 87.5Mz.

    The CDR2005 does have an input for sound, BUT it is only mono and is used as a phone input. I don't know how you would get the tel mute to operate either, which switches to the signal input from either radio or CD.

    I would bet that it is possible, given some time and effort it could be done. But you would then only get a mono signal to both front speakers only.
    The radio transmitter is going to be the best way IMO to play MP3. Or you could get a hardwired radio transmitter, (which isn't a transmitter at all actually). But more of a radio signal input direct to the aerial cable on a frequency you select, this minimises radio signal drop out and distortion. Still have to retune though if you get interference from a radio station broadcast.

    Give Andy Tomlin (Chameleon) in Northampton a call. He's who I used to work for & we dealt with all these type of installs & he'll be able to advise you what you need & also supply it.
    His number is 07973 226654. Tell him I sent ya

    I'd offer to help you out myself but I live just other side of Luton.

    I don't know how you would get the tel mute to operate either,
    You'd just need a switch supplying the mute pin with an earth supply.

    you could get a hardwired radio transmitter, (which isn't a transmitter at all actually)
    These are a transmitter still, just an early version of the wireless ones as there was some law restricting the use of wireless transmitters in the early days.
    They are much more awkward to fit as they had to be switched on & off depending if you wanted the radio or not. As they were plugged in line of the aerial cable when they get switched on they knock out any other FM reception coming through it.

    "You'd just need a switch supplying the mute pin with an earth supply."

    Yes, that is clear, but I meant automatically when the MP3 player is selected. It is possible, just I haven't found out exactly how to do it yet. Tomtom do market a kit, but it is very expensive and unnecessarily complex IMO. Mine is a 710, so doesn't have MP3, I am going to sort it out when I get time.

    To be honest I wouldn't bother going to all this effort just to have mp3 playing through front two speakers in mono.

    Neither would I, but I am going to get the phone via bluetooth and the spoken directions through the stereo and get rid of my handsfree cradle and kit. Takes up too much room now.
