Re: New software update for HOME PNDs - v9.400

Hi Bogi, how can we switch off this terrible new BIG icon for reporting speed cameras?

The one which appears when you are approaching a cam ?

 

Accelerate, the faster you go the sooner it's gone.:smileywink:

 

Seriously, it should not appear if you deactivate the warnings, but if you want to get the warnings afaik you have to live with it.

Unfortunately the backup function has never worked on my XL IQ Routes. It keeps crashing the first time (after a long period), and then going through too quickly when I try a second time. I have no confidence that a restore would ever work.

My Tomtom has some weird (ie. non-windows friendly) filenames in the directories. I don't know whether these are causing the problems.

Don't use Home. Use Explorer for backups/restores.

 

See here:

http://www.tomtomforums.com/t17864-how-backup-contents-your-unit-computer.html

 

If by weird filenames you mean strange characters, then those files/folders are likely corrupt and shouldn't be backed up anyway.

 

Try using Explorer to at least back up your specific map folder and a folder called maps if there is one.

 

Then, once the map folder(s) are backed up, format your unit, don't use Quickformat.

 

Connect to Home, get the application offered and disconnect properly from Home using the Device Disconnect icon.

 

It should boot to 'no maps found'. If so, good!

 

Then connect to the computer and use Explorer to copy back the map folder(s).

 

Reboot the unit now. If it all works, make a complete Explorer backup.

Re: New software update for HOME PNDs - v9.400

Thanks for that. Yes I can confirm that with the with the 'Switch to night colours when dark' unticked it then does not revert to night colours when you switch off, but that also will mean it won't automatically switch to night colours when it is dark. Now that has always functioned perfectly until now, I am really disliking this rubbish update!! Why can't they improve things without all the detrimental affects which stop it from being an improvement?.

Yep!  Got plenty of them. And some of them are reported by Win Explorer to be rather large (>4MB). I'm trying your suggestion. Many thanks for taking the time to explain.

Hey Ditte,

 

I have a TomTom Xl 340 S LIVE, does the update include this model?

NO, the new one on the left side of the screen, which is ALWAYS shown. It is for reporting speed cams with a single click - which I don't want. All I want is to get rid of this UGLY BIG icon, and see the full screen for my directions.

Go to settings / create your own menu or similar and untick report a speedcam, it now should be gone. Or add a second topic, then you get an icon for your own menu which includes all options you have ticked. Check out which of both ways are more convenient for you.
