First thoughts on 1470 and location error
I've spent a few hours on the road with my new 1470 with ver 2.04 software. Using the unit as a map produces no location error. The unit shows my location fore-aft and side to side with no discenable error. Using it to route me to a location is a different story. Location side to side is perfect-shows right where I am on a 4 lane road. There is a noticable lag in fore-aft position. Stopped at a light it shows me not up to the light. This tells me it's got to be a software problem else map mode wouldn't be so dead nuts on. Other than that I'm quite satisfied. I didn't like the auto zoom at turns and turning that off seemed to help the positioning error - probably because it stays zoomed out.
