TomTom VIA 52 automatically swtichs on Driving Instructions
I have a problem with my new TomTom VIA 52. Usually, when I plan a route, the GPS will initially display the route in the "Map-view mode" as in the picture below, which is my desired display mode:
However, as soon as the car start moving, the GPS will automatically switch to the "Instruction-view mode", where the map is dimmed with the written driving instructions over it. Please see the picture below for illustration:
I can manually reset the GPS back to "Map-view mode", but as soon as the car start moving, the stupid GPS will automatically switch back to "Instruction-view mode", and there is nothing I can do to prevent that. I have tried all possible settings and read through the manual, but cannot find a solution to this matter.
Now, when I drive, especially at high speed, there is no way I can read the lengthy driving instructions. I only need a glance or two at the map to see when and where to turn, etc. and this stupid Instruction-view mode really annoys me as it blocks the map. I was so pissed off with this to the point that I almost smashed the stupid thing and threw it over the window.
Could any of you here, especially you TomTom people, if you read this, please help me get rid of this Instruction-view mode? Any advice from you guys will be deeply deeply deeply appreciated.
