Cursor / Map Colors
I've just bought a GO 620 and one of the first things I noticed is the lack of personalisation that you can make to these new units. My previous TomTom (Start 60) had loads of things that you could do to make it unique to you. The new ones have a "corporate" feel about them, and it seems like TomTom are simply saying one size fits all, take it or leave it. I logged an incorrect road speed on the 'Map Share Reporter' recently and from what I've read it could be weeks or months before that gets incorporated into future maps. I'm not sure if the info goes out instantaneously via map share to other users or whether the info even shows on my device until TomTom approve the data. The road in question has had this road speed for at least 18 months. On my previous TomTom you could change a roads speed limit on your device and it was there immediately, no waiting for approval/confirmation.
Anyway, back to the color schemes, on my previous unit I had a blue cursor which clearly stood out against the road color I had. Now using the new unit when I quickly take my eyes off the road to glance at the map display it's not instantly clear where I am because the cursor color and road color are the same. With this being the case you have to focus on the map view that little bit longer to confirm your location thus keeping your eyes off the road longer than needed which to me is a major safety issue. As the older TomTom's had the ability for users to change this then how hard can it be for the "product team" to simply reapply this 'must have' feature.
