TomTom Navigator 7 for Orange SPV M700

Has anyone successfully installed TTN7 on an Orange SPV M700? I've tried and tried but it's not picking up the internal GPS.  TomTom and Orange helpdesks have been useless!!

TomTom - Change Preferences - Press the Arrow 5 times - Configure GPS.

Configure - Select Other NMEA GPS receiver - Set GPS baud rate slider all the way right - Done

Select GPS in COM9

If it does not help read the following :)
On your phone: Start->Settings->System->External GPS. GPS program port is set to ... COM9?
I've never seen SPV M700. I can guess only. Actually, I had the HTC Trinity. I don't know why,  but your phone looks like the HTC brother. Sorry, if I'm wrong.
Here people say that this is HTC:

Actually in the beginning TomTom liked their own GPS receiver. But now it works with any GPS. :)
In order to get the GPS on the HTC Trinity, I had to update the ROM, then I found GPS on COM9. When I just bought the phone, the GPS was not accessible.
Have you seen your GPS working with any GPS application? GPS viewer? Google map?

I cannot recommend you a GPS viewer because I use HTC GPS tool and I don't know if it will work on your phone. But here it is:
