  • OK. Disappointing - I was originally told by TomTom they would let me know when Malcom was made compatible with NAV 3 devices. Guess that's why I never heard any more! So there is no male English computer voice for NAV 3? I find it strange th…
  • CatNip a écrit: » I've just caught up with this. Ages ago now, the Malcom voice was introduced and I tried installing it on my NAV3 Start 25. It didn't work. Contact with TomTom support led to the information that this would be sorted out event…

  • CatNip a écrit: Unfortunately I notice that Mapcode themselves seem to be in some difficulties as they no longer provide full access to the previous default of Google interactive maps, which means you have to use (ironically) the TomTom interactiv…
  • I have always updated my Start 25 successfully using a USB 3 port, so know it can work OK. There is some question of 'Legacy Support' on USB3 ports, this would have to be looked at on the computer settings/Bios. Where do you get the message from,…
  • Is there any point asking: "What about Mapcodes?" Unfortunately I notice that Mapcode themselves seem to be in some difficulties as they no longer provide full access to the previous default of Google interactive maps, which means you have to use…
  • For some while I have also been getting this message on my Start 25 at odd intervals: "...map 584 months old..." when it obviously isn't! Just got one following switch on. I feel pretty sure I must have had more than one cold start (Reset) since …
  • Lacking any further input I had to take the plunge. I can confirm that following the firmware update my Start 25 still uses Mapcodes. I haven't yet really used it following this update so haven't noticed anything else. BTW. Why does TomTom no…
  • Then again, do you actually need to enter Latitude and Longitude? Could you instead go via the Mapcode site and use Mapcodes on your Start 25? Not really documented, either. :slight_smile:
  • bendercasim a écrit: Thanks for that @dhn So even if the subscription of the speed camera service is expired will continue to work with the latest maps and navcore updates?! With my START 25 the outdated Speed Camera database still works (but…
  • Just thought of one more thing I need to check before an update, ought to have thought of it before. Can people who have updated confirm the updated NAV 3 system still fully supports Mapcodes? I have a START 25 - a non OTA SatNav - and can't/don'…
  • Noticed any changes to their operation or user interface so far?
  • The clock issue: Clock The SatNav Millennium Bug all over again...
  • Whoa! Another software update for NAV 3 devices? I want to know full details before I go ahead. I don't want to find mine has been mucked up in some way as a result of 'improved' firmware. For a start, what is this issue with the device clock…
  • Thanks for info.
  • YamFazMan a écrit: A while back Tomtom changed the voice instructions for Roundabouts After some gentle persuasion on the Forum (Read Bloodbath ) Don't remind me! :drooling_face: Even ended up with me having to make a formal complaint to …
  • I believe the Via 52 is a NAV 4 system device, unlike the Start 25, so I'm not sure it would react the same way as mine. 'Jane' is a recorded voice, have you tried with the computer voice 'Serena' to see if this works better? Seems to give the…
  • Is this in the UK? Is it reproducible? If so, can you give me an example of a roundabout (Mapcode if possible!) and route so I can try it out on mine. Also, what voice were you using?
  • I'm not convinced all these soft resets (actually cold starts?) are really necessary. If there is an actual fault OK, but this "45 minutes" or so under these circumstances is surely just the way things work. If the TomTom is moved a significant d…
  • Niall a écrit: @muckwa More details required! Where in the world are you? Presumably he doesn't know.
  • It should not just switch off by itself. Do you mean it does actually power off, or just switch to another mode? If the former are you powering the device in the car using the originally supplied TomTom USB power adaptor? A phone charger etc. may…
  • Think we need a bit more context. Model? What are you trying to do, navigate to a destination or run a route on your SatNav? Location, route? Have you kept it updated with maps and QuickGPSfix?
  • Also, does your car have a 'thermal' windscreen?
  • Could be. Are you using the originally supplied USB power adaptor that came with the device? Others may not supply enough current. Is the LED in the USB charger on when the car ignition is turned on?
  • Possibly, if not used for a while, the information it stores (UTC time etc) has gone 'stale'. In which case, IMO, it will not turn on normally - with a quick dab of the power button - but needs a reset. In which case, make sure fully charged, the…
