Nice, cant wait to try the new features out on the 24th.Are we getting new maps too?
I also found, that if I set a traffic station manually and then look at the incidents (details view), that the traffic station FM frequency changed. Auto scan was OFF. Can someone confirm that on their unit?
Is the 3.4.25 only for people with "newer" devices?
Papa,so if I currently have the "old" 3.4.21 version then I only download the"Navigation Map + App update (Including TTS update)" package and NOT the "OS & Software Update (T43H_v3_4_25_0_100614MP_LIC )" package?
I'm on 3.4.20, so I just need to download T43H_v3_4_21_0_091026MP_LIC.zip, right?
Papa - I have a newer unit that shows T43 ver 188.8.131.52 27/05/10 ver 04.00.18. Is that what it is supposed to be ?
I am going to test out the traffic tomorrow. I see the TTS voice is Susan, the same as Tom Tom, who own Tele Atlas.
I thought the original voice was a man the last time I had this unit in February (or March)
Did you remark previously that when you go into the setiings menu and change one, it sends you back to the main menu and you have to renavigate to the settings (a few screens) again to change another ? I am speaking of the settings through the navigation icon, not the one at the bottom on the far right. Thanks !!
Does that mean we are going to be left out in the cold on future updates or will they do 2 versions for each update in the future, one for the old guys and one for the new hardware? Thanks.
I think Cydle has to do a major job to promote this unit which they have spent a lot in developing. This is really a beautiful GPS which I only learned about it in January through this forum
Those would be some nice enhancements in my opinion.
Is there a way to set up a poll so people could vote on features?
Also, finished the update. This is the Nav app update only. My OS system version is still 3.4.21. Is there a way for us to go to a newer OS like 3.4.24 or 25? Will there be an OS update for us shortly?What are the differences, fixes, updates in those newer versions?
Music: random play whole directory tree / sub-dirs, equalizer (3 or 5 band) for MP3 and HD radio (separate setting for each).
Map: overlay traffic, show current road on bottom of screen (even if not in navigation mode).Side by side route summary with no constraint route as 3rd option.Maybe a button like: "Current road has bad traffic" and then a new screen with button for how many miles you think the traffic is bad, like 1,3,5,10 miles. Or, for roads where the GPS knows the speed limit and it "sees" that your current speed is considerably less (50%+) for several (3-5) minutes, it could automatically suggest a new route not using the current road.
Hey Papa~Just wanted to say that I think you're quite a trooper, with all the posting and updates you've done on this forum. It's obvious you love your Cydle! In fact, I read through everything and almost got one based upon what you've written. In the end, I bought the MotoNav, but it was real close! If the multimedia functions were of any interest at all, I may have bought the Cydle!Have a blessed day!
Anyway, if I understood your last post correctly Papa, then there is a hardware change in the newer T43H devices that makes the 3.4.25 version incompatible for us "early adopter, 3.4.21 guys"?
I just wanted to give you props for being a one-man forum! That's the kind of passion that makes this site so good. Cydle should also send you some "freebies" for all your had work and dedication!
Funny - I thought that a company that's been around as long as Motorola would have the edge on service, vs. a relative newcomer like Cydle. Now I'm not so sure... :shock:
Certainly gives customers and potential customers a good feeling to know that a Cydle representative is watching and listening in this forum.
As an aside, I like the ability to change the Theme colors (Background/Icon/Text) on the T43H.
Question for Cydle Staff:Are you allowed to tell us what changed in the new Hardware design?
If not, could you tell us if it is affecting HiFi sound quality?I am using my Cydle as 70% music player / HD radio and 30% Nav system since I usually know where I am going in my day to day drives. However, as music player, the quality is not what I have hoped for.
If you would tell me that the sound quality improved considerably with the new hardware design, then I would consider selling my current version and getting the new one.
As an aside, I like the ability to change the Theme colors (Background/Icon/Text) on the T43H.I'm with you on that. I just created my own theme and tested it works! All you need to do is to replace the bmp in the "Theme" folder and reinstall the OS.
I'd like to know how philgood has the gps mounted and in what vehicle?
It's Volvo XC60. When I first some across Cydle, I know it has lots of potential! Waiting for the 6" (or 7") version of T43H :)
I need to cut a hole in the OEM part. Wires are routed behind the dash: antenna cable is laid behind the dash, aux out is routed to the aux input under the arm rest; I also create a trap wire to the reset button on the left hand side of T43H, so I can reset the unit by using a hook like wire. I also use a USB extension cord to get power from the 12V supply, it can also be used to connect to my laptop for music download.
The navigation feature on T43H is light year ahead of OEM nav unit and cost a factor of it. It can also play music and movie :)
