I like my Tom Tom very much, but there is one thing that irritates me. We all know the "safety screen" is activated when you start moving when the device is docked on a bike docking station. I do not like this eather, but ok. Let that be. I am able to select one of the buttons from a menue to have present on this menu. So far so good. When I plan a route with several way-points, I have to pass every waypoint very close for the devise to register the way-point as "visited". If not, I will be told to turn arround and go back until I stop my bike, get the full meny, and select "way-point visited". It is very normal to select a city center as way-point, but you normally pass the city in the outskirts. Hence you have not passed the way-point close enough. I have tried to run this problem through Tom Tom support, telling them the following: Is it possible to program the button "way-point visited" so that it is one of the buttons that I can select for the safety screen"? Then I could with one push select next way-point instead. Tom Tom do not seem to understand why this is necessary, and I am told they have no plans to do this small change in the programming.
Have anyone else experienced the same problem? If so I erge you all to copy my explenation and sent to Tom Tom support. I think when several people ask for the same thing they will listen.
Solved! Go to Solution.

If you mark a specific point at the map or a address, you must be very close to this point to get it marked as "visited".
But there is a feature: If you select a city center, the waypoint is marked as "visited" in a larger distance. Try it out.

Joghurt, member of a large german forum, provides a solution with his tool "Overleap". I won't post the link here, since this is a official TomTom forum and Joghurts tool is no official TomTom approved software. But Google will help you soon.
Overleap provides a button at the main screen. It definitively works at Rider and Rider 2nd.

I have been in contact with Joghurt, and will download his software today.
He also told me that the function "scip to next waypoint" that can be chosen among the optional buttons in the "safe drive mode" has been implemented in the new Rider Urban. I think Tom Tom also could have done this minor change for Rider 2nd edition, but there you go. They obviesly want people to scrap a perfectly fine working devise (and buy a new one) just to get this option. Well, not me. The result is of cource that I have to implement unauthorized software, or mask one of the pins on my MC mount that makes the Safe meny appear.
It`s a pity.
Is it no way that the moderators on this forum can influence Tom Tom to re-consider? Little me was obviously not enough. The message from Tom Tom was that Support had been in contact with the programmers, and the answer was NO.
