pasgal, Red light is supposed to be on. Red light indictes it has a fix as far as I know. Perhaps you have not paired the device correctly with whatever BT device you have. You should have a rapidly flashing Blue light to indicate pairing.
Where are you in Italy? I Just used my BT77 to drive from Geneva to Lago Maggiore in Italy and it worked fine.

Can anyone give me an idea if leaving the BT77 on and connected to my new Citroens Berlingos 12v power supply overnight is likely to drain the battery signifigantly? The auxilary 12v outlets in my Berlingo are always powered even with the ignition off and because of their location in the overhead lockers it is a pain to unplug them. So I thought I would just leave the plug in and the BT77 on all the time and charging overnight.
My gut feeling is the current drain would be low and would take a few days to drain the car battery. Anyone got any thoughts on this.

it does not receive marks them satellite, one possible solution: to start the nemerix and to put it over the external roof of an automobile until when the led red it flashes 1 every 3 second ones

i've just got one of these bt77 bluetooth jobbies, and i'm trying to get it working with tomtom3 on my ipaq hx4700. i bought it to replace the cabled one i had.

so far i've had no luck getting it working.

i've paired the device, and in the bluetooth manager there is now a shirtcut to "BT GPS: SPP slave", which I can connect to throught he manager. i went to the gps control panel for tomtom, but i can't work out the settings (or something else is messed up) because it never shows any activity (on the status tab).

what settings should i select in the GPS tab?

I leave mine permanently powered via the rear power sockets (I forget to power it off most of the time) of my citroen c8 - no sign of the battery running down over a period of 4 days. As the little battery it comes with lasts 16 hours I guess the power drain is very low.

Previously I left a haicom bt unit plugged in for 5 months (removed the internal battery) - and had no problems at all. I use my car every day and drive 500 miles+ a week so the battery is always topped up - which may help.

I wouldn't leave anything plugged in if the car is being left for a period just common sense I guess.

try both the bt com (you want the incoming one) ports in the COM box and I use nmea v2 9600 in the gps type box.

Hi,

I've noticed that my unit is very bad at getting satellites when battery is low. (i.e. when there is only 1-2 hours left before the unit turns itself off).

In this state, it seems to do better if no devices are connected. Connecting devices seems to throw the thing off the scent.

Anyone else noticed similar problems?

Chime.
