I have never been to impressed with traffic on any of the GPS's I have owned, just to many times it shows traffic that isn't there or won't show traffic that is there.
No kidding. If it can't be accurate then why bother? I did like the fact that it gave me an estimate of the time it would be cleared up. At least I could say to myself as I'm passing the area "Oh it cleared up". It's better than the "WTF this traffic service is useless"
timothyjok, what did you like better about the 1690 compared to the Moto? I couldn't find anything when I saw a 1690 in Best Buy.
I also noticed some glare on the screen but it was never crippling and every GPS I have ever used suffers from that to some degree or another.
How did you make out with Motorola on the map update?
First of all, thank you for your interest in our products!Please provide us the following information: - Date of purchase,- the version number of your Naviextras Toolbox application (eg. 126.96.36.199.1.54d.1.35c; you can find this in the header of the application; please make sure that the "Automatically search for updates" and the "Automatically download updates" options are switched on at "Settings"),- the exact type of your navigation device.Please also attach the content of the license folder (of the SD card or the internal memory of your device) in zipped format (.zip or .rar).Best regards,Naviextras Support
Current Owners:Check to see if you are eligible for a free map upgrade. Log in to the toolbox and connect your MOTONAV device. If a new map is available and you are within 60 days of the device's first use, the toolbox will identify a new map for free download.
caryrae, I had the same experience on the phone yesterday. The guy had to put me on hold to even understand which product I was referring to. Then he said there must not be a map update available and he read me the MotoExtras features. LOL.But it sounds like you are on a much better track with your email, please post your findings here!P.S. Is it written anywhere that we are owed a map update within the first 60 days of purchasing the device? I can't seem to find that info. Thanks!
It almost seems like Moto rushed these units out into the market to me. I'm not complaining about that as I love my unit, but it seems that way.The Moto Toolbox software wasn't really finalized yet, their website still has a lot of things labeled as "Coming soon" and stuff like that. They also don't have the car kit available until May, and even the carrying case wasn't released yet I don't think.Also, the units are just now starting to roll out to other retailers other than Amazon. It seems their customer service department isn't really well versed on these units yet either.So hopefully we will start seeing more support and information soon. I just hope they don't half ass the support and figure their job is done by just releasing these units.When Home Shopping Network unveiled the TN765t on TV, the host said that Motorola dedicated more than a year on these GPS's alone. And for them to have a car kit and everything else slated, it seems like they are going to invest in and support this product. Also on their MotoExtras website, it seems like they are going to release a lot of stuff for it.We can only hope for the best! But with that being said, I still am thrilled with my unit even if not much changed. It does everything that I need it to.
