    What can that be?
    write me your resolution emulator?

    when i change resolution and donīt was 640x480 or 800x600 it was unreadable.

    Just the emulator screen. I mean I can see well the emulator window (with the menu: file, flash, help).

    The emulator screen is just fine when I start it, or when I exit the program Tomtom.

    While the Tomtom program is running the screen is blurred, I can barely see what is written (the tomtom program setup process).

    I also thought of a resolution problem, I tried 640x480x16 and 320x240x16, which other resolution shall I try?

    Although I am not sure this is the problem since the emulator is fine with both resolutions, just the tomtom program not.

    tomtom will not work with non standard resolutions when the pocket pc will. for example, the pocketpc will run in widescreen mode but tomtom will appear completely unreadable. this is because tomtom's software writes in scan lines and will resize only at a 4:3 ratio (crap programming if you ask me)

    claudioita, could you post some screenshots, and the exact settings your using to:

    a) initially start the emulator
    b) start the emulator thereafter

    "C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Device Emulator 2.0 Preview\DE.exe" "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Windows Mobile 5.0 MSFP Emulator Images\pocketpc.nb0" /s "C:\pocketpc.dess" /p /sharedfolder "C:\Storage Card" /vmname TomTom /video 640x480x16 /memsize 128

    I tried also 320x240x16 and/or memsize 256

    I renamed the program deviceemulator.exe in de.exe

    You can see the tomtom is correctly running. If I press enter, it goes to ask the settings (also almost unreadable)

    fails to start with serials

    Still nobody who have found a solution for this problem with the emulator not being abel to start up after state been saved when serialport for GPS connected?

    I've got the emulator working fine on tomtom ver.5, but I cant make it go back to the state were com-ports has been setup.

    if all else fails, it's not a very nice workaround, but you can use an external app like autohotkey to renable the serial ports on startup.

    i get pda working flawlessly on my homepc but tomtom cd doesn't want to install. I can't complain about it cause the cd isn't genuine (i want to try it out cause tomtom cd is more than 300€ with maps). Which version did you try exactly? I have here tomtom navigator 5.21. Cheers

    You can use the SDCARD version. You basically just copy all the files to the "Storage Card" and as soon as you boot up the PDA tomtom will install automatically on your PDA. If not just run the "autorun" file

    Much much better than the CD version.
