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:
