Hi,

After searching for a destination and selecting. I do not get an option to drive / ride ! The only option is the blue arrow which changes to the map to show where I am .....not useful.

Any assistance would be useful as rtfm wasn't much use !

Thankyou

    Hi
    @33Chris44

    Firstly....
    After you have Planned & Calculated your route... The device needs a Satellite Lock before you are offered the Drive option

    The Satellite Dish Icon disappears after receiving a Satellite Lock

    OR....

    Have by any chance turned off Automatic Map Switching i the setting menus ???

    You can turn off the automatic switching to the North-up overview map at your destination the in the setting menu

    With "Automatic Map Switching" turned off when you arrive at your destination the device will continue using your chosen navigation screen to show your present location... Note you may need to tap the Plus Icon button a couple of times to zoom in for the map detail

    From the main screen
    Tap the 4Dot (.... Menu) Icon (Screen Bottom left)
    Swipe left or Tap the mid/right edge of the screen to go to the Cogwheel Icon
    Tap Cogwheel Icon
    Tap Appearance
    Turn off Automatic Map view switching
    Tap Blue arrowhead Icon ( > ) top right on screen to exit

    But unfortunately, this has an effect on both ends of the journey.....
    If you have turned off Automatic Map view switching
    Now whenever you have planned a route, you will have to tap the "Lets Go" banner or the "Direction of travel Icon" the arrowhead above the plus and minus buttons

    The Map does not switch at either the start or the end of your journey
    ___________________________________________________

    There are also three options for the Zoom function.....
    (1)..... Zoom into next turn
    (2)..... Based on road type
    (3)..... None
    From the main screen
    Tap the 4Dot (.... Menu) Icon (Screen Bottom left)
    Swipe left or Tap the mid/right edge of the screen to go to the Cogwheel Icon
    Tap Cogwheel Icon
    Tap Appearance
    Tap Automatic zoom
    choose the required option
    Tap Blue arrowhead Icon ( > ) top right on screen to exit
