I have a Truck Go Sat Nav with European Maps and I'd like to show the border crossings in the route bar. Is there any way of doing this? Surely there must be. It's really handy to know how far from a border you are at a glance so you can get a vignette, clear customs, prepare for a lengthy wait etc.

    Now I must apologize, have not thought enough. With the 6250 you can only set whether you want to avoid or allow border crossings!
    It looks different with the new Expert. Since you can select border crossing as a point of interest!

    But I am of the opinion that on the 6250 the border crossings are also displayed, somewhat confusing because the display toll area and border crossing look almost the same! But since I do not pay attention (why also) I can not say exactly and at the moment I can not look because the 6250 is in the truck and that is in the workshop!

    Thanks for your reply. Pretty disappointing that it's not a feature on a truck sat nav. Trying to see the line for the border on map view involves a lot of fiddling in and out and isn't very satisfactory.

    @ nealt_un42, the answer from @ rider1rider is unfortunately wrong. Which Truck Go do you really have?

    Hi. Thanks for replying. I have the TomTom Go Prefessional 6250.

    Hi Siggi, Thanks for talking the time to reply in detail. I do appreciate it. Maybe I need to upgrade my TomTom to an Expert then. It's not essential to see the borders but a nice feature to have.

    Thanks again
