AndyGood question I went to TT site to see what the upgrade did and couldn't even find the firm ware upgrade.Don
I still have an FM transmitter for music, not for voice prompts.
In Nav7, you could select to have the compass point to the direction you were driving, not just north. Further, you could also have displayed the direction (in letters such as N, NE, etc.) displayed or the degrees you were travelling. It was also larger than the dinky compass in N8, which as you point out (and I tried to point out to a recent poster) just points North.
I just upgraded my 920 to 8.30 and I just noticed how small the fonts are for the upcoming turns. For example, the top of the screen looks like Hwy2/Hwy4/Hwy765 Solomons.... This was over in Maryland. Is there a way to change this?
Yes! I took out the 920 last night for the first time and there is an intersection near me that requires a left and then a quick right. The 920 choked and stuttered and never got the directions out. Never heard that before.
Users in other forums both here and in the UK are observing that while driving (not in demo mode) that computer voices are stuttering/hesitating, especially with long names with the 8.3 firmware.Anybody have that experience while driving?
My 930 has not yet experienced stuttering with the new firmware.
I learned my lesson on firmware upgrades with the flawed 4.0 nuvi update. This sounds like much the same nuvi 7x0 issue, with the the TomTom processor being overtaxed and/or insufficient resources for the new firmware. Apparently must add some current or future function upgrades. I'll wait to upgrade. See no need to with the complaints starting to crop up.
Tonight's experience was horrible. At just about every intersection, the 920 stuttered so badly you couldn't understand a word.
