no sound with speed cam (TomTom One XL)

IQ routes in 730 vs. 740

I've tried searching the net to no avail. So I hope this isn't a repost.

Apparently, the 740 now uses time of day in addition to day of week for its IQ route calculations.

Can anyone confirm that whether the TomTom 730 has hour-of-day IQroute calculations? or is it only day by day?

Thank you very much smile

Height v13 is now available. It works with the 9.XXX navcores. If you have an earlier version installed, copy the height.cgf file from it to the v13 height folder, so you do not have to re-configure it.

Wanted to smash my TomTom to pieces last night

I was driving to east Tucson last night, and my TomTom 125 had instructed me to get off 5 miles early, and then drive along the freeway access road, with stoplights every mile.

After a couple of miles of doing this, I was wondering what on earth is my TomTom doing? So I got back on the freeway.

Update of TomTom

After trying to update my TomTom One XL I got an error that it could not load. After 4 hours on the phone with TomTom support they decided the best thing to do was to format the drive.

We formatted the drive, tried to load again, and nothing worked.
