Migrating user questions
Here's a happy GO 740 user who has been forced to migrate to the newer TomTom devices. I am considering a Go 520 wifi, but have questions to be answered first:
I've been trying the GO Mobile app (on iPhoneSE) for a couple to see the newer software. One of my big annoyances is the font size and the amount of icons/text that are hovering over the guidance screen. Especially the (way too) big arrows in the upper part of the screen, covering the map in such a way that you cannot see the route far ahead.
Can this be moved down or even off the map? And be made (much) smaller? I haven't found any setting for this in the current version. Most screens have good an adequate screen resolution and size, why not make use of it?
I still like my old GO 740 where most of the icons and driving info are NOT hovering all over the map.
Second, I've noticed that when I enter an address or lookup a POI on the GO 740, the location is more correct that on the GO Mobile with the same date map. Often the GO Mobile route ends up in a neighbouring street/block, and on the GO 740 it right on the doorstep.
Speedlimits... will they be corrected faster on the newer GO's? In the past it sometime took 2 years before a reported speedlimit was checked and changed in new maps.
The itineraries are still not good as they once were in the GO 740. Kind of strange that such function which was there in almost all TomTom's in earlier generations, take so much time in development nowadays. I guess that most of that time is consumed by too many managers and consultants interfering programmers work??
