Setting up your BlackBerry to work on your TomTom GPS is a great way to enable features such as hands-free calling, reading and writing messages, and accessing traffic information all through your TomTom. With the use of Bluetooth, you can pair your BlackBerry to your TomTom with ease. Not all BlackBerry phones are compatible. As of August 2010, there was not a TomTom GPS application to download directly onto BlackBerry devices.
