I had a play with Wi-Fi Analyser on my phone after a drive out into the sticks. The result suggests I'm more subject to exposure from sleeping in my bed at night. I'm not sure if Wi-Fi Analyser is the right tool for this though. Anyway, that changes nothing. I would like to be able to turn off Wi-Fi if I'm not using it.…
I have set up way-points using my Go Basic, which I understand is a cut-down version of the Go Premium. This function is well hidden though. If I remember rightly (I don't have my SatNav with me right now), what I did was: 1. Define the start and end points for my planned route (I assume you can do this). 2. Use Quick…
Hi @YamFazMan, Good thinking. Funnily enough, I was thinking the same thing. I have Wi-Fi Analyzer on my phone. I'll give that a try. I might just take my SatNav out into the wilds first though, to be clear of any stray Wi-Fi signals. Thanks for your suggestion.
I think DavidWalland's problem is not so much a case of being able to do updates, but being able to not do updates -- whilst he is driving.
@John-Jay, I appreciate that, although the moderators do read here, and I've seen instances of topics being fed back to the developers. Is there another way of contacting TomTom more directly? I have looked, but didn't find one. If there is a better way, please let me know. Thanks.
@DavidWalland, I don't have a Go 520, but if there were a way to disable Wi-Fi transmission, I believe that would solve this problem. If yours is like my Go Basic, it doesn't have a way to do that. This, in my view, is a serious omission. Any device that has built-in Wi-Fi should have the ability to turn it off at will.
Hi YamFazMan, Yes, it boils down to what is this device doing with Wi-Fi when it's powered on? Is it just listening (it is certainly listening), or is it listening and transmitting all the time, even when not Wi-Fi-connected? I would like to know. And if it's transmitting all the time, I would like to be able to turn that…
