Showing time without route guidance - Excitement then Disappointment
This has been a feature I've been asking for:
https://en.discussions.tomtom.com/rider-51/rider-400-ui-improvements-request-997485 (TomTom deprecated this request and linked to the next one)
Ever so hopeful, I went and bought the 550. When I got the 550 (18.103.0020.411), I realized that the time is not visible on the map, but at least only in the Menu. I thought I can compromise and live with that, as now when I am riding without route guidance, the time is just a quick tap of the Menu button.
Everything was fine until I decided to update my new 550 to the latest version (18.200.0018.411). Suddenly, the time feature DISAPPEARED! Now the time is not visible in the Menu screen.
Miffed, I decided to look all over for a way to make this time feature visible, thinking it might be a setting. But I found that the time is only visible in one single spot! Quick Settings page from the Menu Screen (by going to the Menu, then clicking the status icons row on the top; not to be confused with the Quick Settings page from the circular slider icon from the Map screen or Menu screen). Not only that, but with both the 410 and 550 at 18.200.0018, only the 550 retained the time in the hidden screen! (Pics below show both 410 and 550 together, respectively.)
WHY? Why did the time feature get removed? Is there a way for the programmers/engineers to bring it back just like it did when the 550 was at 18.103? Or was that simply a tease to get me all worked up?
