The web is full of blogs from people unable to connect the Orange SPV M5000 and different bluetooth GPS receivers when working with Tomtom.  Tomtom do not support the M5000. Different solutions are suggested on the web including altering the mobile registry. I installed a 32 channel solar GPS receiver from Ebay and could not get it to connect correctly until by accident I discovered that the phone side of the M5000 has to be turned on and not in flight mode.  Also the connection port Com 0 becomes unavailable once the phone is on but Com 8 works well.  Simple solution that could have saved hours of work, so if you only use the Wi-fi side of the M5000, turn the phone on when installing bluetooth GPS.
