Hi does anyone know how I can see/find how much battery life is left in my 6200? I’ve only ever seen it when the battery was extremely low by showing red warning. My old 820 live is so much more user friendly, what’s happened at TT office?

    Hi
    @Spork

    Tap the 4Dot (.... Menu) button... On the Menu Screen top right is a battery status Icon

    Charging... Displays when Connected to a Power supply

The device will go into 'Power Saving Mode' the screen will dull, and the device will eventually turn itself off (Not Sleep)

    There is a Battery Status display available on the devices Status Screen
    Press and hold the on/off button until you hear a drum-roll sound Continue to hold the on/off button until the Black & White Status screen is shown.....

    If you are worrying about the device charging, you might consider one of these gadgets

    b23e2fef-ffbf-4127-80b0-646533d6f987.jpg Simply plug the device into the USB socket and plug your lead into the USB Doctor, the device will display the Voltage and Power being used by your various USB devices
    I have one of each type they're only peanuts to buy, search Amazon/eBay for USB Doctor

    Hi, thanks for the information, quite like the little gadgets but wouldn’t you have thought the top of the range model would show a battery percentage display, so you can’t see it unless in effect do a reset with the power button, WOW! Great thought went into this, does anybody at TT office actually use one.

    It could be better if the battery charge level was indicated in numbers in the main screen like smartphone. Perhaps in a next navcore update.
