I have an xperia XA and have been trying to connect my Tomtom go 500 satnav via BT tethering for their traffic. I have used another phone for tethering and its been fine but on the XA it connects for a while then states "error ocurred during tether" which suggests an phone bluetooth issue.
Can anyone help

If you search the tomtom forums you will see other people with different handsets also have this issue which seems to be related to the tomtom software not the phone.

Thought I would post an update as to tethering my Sony XA and tomtom go 500 unit after following the instructions in this post
my phone connects every time with no drop outs and re connects automatically to the tomtom unit without fail. I have been using it now every day and has not dropped connection where it would connect for 10 mins and not connect at all until I turned of the phone. I now have a solid stable connection gain. I did not think it would be the phone that would be the issue as brand new from EE 6 months ago and all the tomtom issues started then - but I put it down to the sat nav as it was 3 yrs old and must be the problem. Incidently, I tried the unit with my wife's phone but it too was also a Sony and had same effect - this too is also fixed with this trick.
