Yet, on this page:
http://www.tomtom.com/en_gb/sat-nav/car-sat-nav/products/go-6100-europe/
There is a how-to video section which states:
"Use your smartphone, tablet or PC to check the traffic situation in real-time, to plan routes, and to send destinations straight to your TomTom GO sat nav. (4)"
"(4)Supported TomTom GO models include: GO 40 / 50 / 60 / 51 / 61 / 400 / 500 / 510 / 600 / 610 / 5000 / 5100 / 6000 / 6100."

That implies it supports both bluetooth and its built-in SIM.
Hello on the go 6100 the communications is done by the sim card that is on the device when using Mydrive the request is send to the web ( online ) so my device receives this information so I can drive to the place I have choose.

Thank you @Lafaiete. I believe that... the description is a bit misleading, I think. I'd be nice if it supported bluetooth as well since then if one is using the device where there is no 2G coverage (such as in the US) you could still use your smartphone.

Hi
No it doesn't Its about the "MyDrive" and the video never mentions Bluetooth
As far as I'm aware, only NAV4 devices that support Bluetooth are the Tomtom Rider 400/40

With the exception of the devices with the builtin SIM card (the 4 digit devices), bluetooth is supported. Indeed, that is how the Nav 4 device pairs with your smartphone. And how it must be done in areas where 2G is not supported.
