Scroll map and reverse route/track?

tenderboytenderboy Posts: 17 [Master Explorer]
Hi!

Is it really not possible to scroll on the map while driving a route or track?!?

I wanted to have a look at the overall route during riding a route. First of all, it was not even possible to zoom out unless I changed the view from 3D to 2D.
Then I tried to zoom out a little and scroll the map to see the next few villages on the way. Not possible.
Really, TomTom?
Yeah, I mean who would need that in a GPS, right?

Also... it is NOT possible to reverse a route or track (except by hand via rearranging all the waypoints)?!?
Why?

And of course its not possible as well to divide a track or route into 2 separate tracks/routes.
Oh boy.

    To toggle between the chosen Driving View and the North-up planning Overview Map
    In the North-up Overview Map you can Pan & Pinch Zoom
    The North-up Overview Map has a more wide and squat pointer

    Thanks a lot!

    Regarding the reverse route : I tried that, but all it does is reverse the start and end points of the route, but deletes all the points in between.
    So instead of a 3 hour round course after reversing its a 10 meter route.

    I have the Rider 550.

    The Round-trip option is not available in the mydrive app on Android and also not available in mydrive in the browser of my phone.

    Also, I think that should be an option that has to be possible to be done on the GPS unit itself. I really don't want to have to get out my phone and play around with internet connection and so forth for a simple task that every GPS should have in 2019.

    Especially, as for example yesterday as I needed it, the mydrive server were not working properly and I also drive in countries where an internet connection on my phone would be very expensive.

    AFAIK the only way to reverse a route on the device (400 onward) is to 'reorder points'. Unless you have a lot it's pretty quick.

    Agreed.
    The number of times this has been requested! And yet TomTom won't add it, clearly it's not a priority to car driving designer(s)
