JOSEPH, 18 May 2012somebody help me, i don´t know how connect to my htc tytn ... moreNot a problem:

Connect to your GPS Antenna via

- COM PORT: 9

- Baud Rate: 38400

That is the way my TYTN works with my G-sat GPS Receiver (no ad intended!)

BTW, do not forget to let your antenna stand still, close to your phone, preferably beneath a blue sky (avoid tall buildings and other physical obstacles) and be prepared for the process to take some time in your first time.
I believe it's called a "cold fix" the first time you use your gps receiver and having to wait a few minutes for the first fix OR whenever you try a new fix in a place that is distant from your previous disconnection(more than 5 minutes is very usual in any phone/receiver).

After that first fix, you'll be able to carry the receiver in your pocket on open air, beneath any window of your car and it will work flawlessly.
External receivers tend to have larger antennas and work noticeable better than gps antennas inside the phone, namely, when going through tunnels.

Anyway, if you've got installed any programme such as "GPS Viewer" you may try other combinations "Com Port - Baudrate", because I really believe other combinations are possible.

Just be... patient and Good Luck! =)

htc tytn,simply the BEST!!! sturdy,reliable,functional!even after a few accidental drops to the floor,it still works perfectly!!!this phone should really be one of those on the top!!!

  • hansel

It's unfair that this phone is kept out of the top chart.

This way the chart will only accept new models, making it not a real tbut a form of disguised advertising, always bringing out new models.

A Top chart must reflect what phones have stood the test of time, which phones are selling like hot cakes, which phones the public appreciates the best, whatever the reason.

Censorship, whatever the reason or "explanation" is always non-democratic and oppressive.
Censorship always reveals the fear of the truth.

Hey, the top phone has a 3 x 8.3 score and this phone has got a
8.4 - 8.5 - 8.4 score and it's out of the top???
What is wrong with this?
Are only current phones allowed in the top?
And, if so, why can they be voted for if it isn't worth anything?
Many old, old phones are in the top and that is only fair. They're true classics.

Is there anything against HTC and the TYTN?
I, for one, do not want to believe in such a thing!

Let's be fair to all brands and to voters' opinions.

Right you are.
Why is this phone out of the top?

Let's put it back where it belongs.
In GSM ARENA's many other phones' pages people openly ask users to vote for that phone.

That is NOT my intention.
This is a classic phone, but as it happens with cars, watches and many other consumer goods, it has stood the test of time and still is a great, fully functional phone that allows you to do basically everything contemporary phones do.

  • Hans

In the "Specifications" page it can be read:
"Memory Card slot microSD, up to 2GB"

This is NOT TRUE.

My TYTN has got an 8GB card and it works just fine.
I've bought it, placed it on the phone and it has been working perfectly ever since.
It does recognise 8GB and it is fast and reliable.

This phone performs really well and it endures... everything!
Too bad about the lack of GPS, but an external antenna (cheap, small & light) does the trick. ;o)

Very good phone!

  • VdG

Still great specs and very reliable.
You see plenty of these phones still in use.
This is a brilliant piece of technology, even by today's standards.
A TYTN of a phone! =)
