  • Tim, It is the same with my computer and it started maybe 6 Weeks ago. I thought it was a computer setting that i inadvertently selected.
  • You are right spyder, I have the TT720. I didn't think other brands had the Itinerary Feature
  • Itinerary Feature. I could see where this feature would be useful for work related issues, i.e. Salesman with specific routes to run, but for Vacationing,which is what I thought I needed the Itinerary feature for, I have never used it. PS Tim, Thi…
  • Wish I had known about the Card upgrade Jay. I bought this Unit when it first came out and returned it for the TT 720 because I thought the Touch Screen wasn't sensitive enough. I loved everything else about the unit, except the Routing in one inst…
  • Sorry Tim, that post was a little confusing. If I install a new map and the street reflects the new name, but my POI address is the old address; Eventually this will happen, Is the only way to know which POI Address is wrong is when You Navigate t…
  • Thanks for the quick reply Tim, I'll see what I can do with it when I get home.
  • Thanks Tim, I thought I had read that the unit would only Demo to 60 Mi. But I couldn't find it again. Also You may want me to start a new Thread on this, but I have found 2 errors on the map for the trip I will be taking. One error is the street na…
  • I would see exactly what the warrenty covered if I were considering extended warranty. I didn't get it with my TT720, but I bought my wife a Camcorder for Xmas and I bought extended warranty for it because it covered lens breakage, vewing screen br…
  • Thanks for the response Tomjo3
  • dhn, You are right, I had completely forgotten in my old age, but the first time I connected to the Computer the first thing it did was ask if I wanted to upgrade to 2.1 Version and I said yes.
  • I also used the Dock but I think that TT suggests using the quick Charger also, but I may be wrong. I found the new Map in File "New Map Guarantee" I may have gotten a Home2 version on the Disc but the TTH page doesn't say TT Home2
  • sgr, I used the TTH version that was on the Disc that came with the 720 unit. It downloaded the 710 Map Version and installed it, but it took 2 Hrs. to do this. I don't know if this is normal or not but it worked. If you don't have the quick charger…
  • Thanks for the reply and the Link Tim, I'll check this as soon as I get home
  • Thanks for the reply Tim, If there is a newer version of Map than what I have do I need to call Tom Tom or how do I get it?
  • Thanks Tim, I don't know how I overlooked that.
  • Thanks for the clarification Tim. I read some on the topic, but the more I read the more i became confused. I don't know how You guys keep up with the constantly changing Technology. I'm just glad there are Forums like this that People like me ca…
  • That was my first thought also, but Mobile is in the same time Zone so that wasn't the problem. I traded the 7100 in for the TT720 Sat. I think I'm going to love this unit.
  • I was also curious about what phone would be compatible with a TT and did some investigating. If i understand this correctly Bluetooth Uses a few different ways to communicate with compatible devices. One is GPRS (General Packet Radio Service) which…
  • A fuse is to protect the wiring and components in a circuit . if You have a "short" or other problems, if the fuse is rated to high it could burn up the wiring or damage components because it will not "blow".

  • Thanks Tim, That was some very helpful input. Thanks
  • Thanks Tim' That was helpful. If I wanted to make a call while Navigating, wouldnt I want to have the Phone Directory in the GPS unit so i wouldnt have to use the keypad to punch in the whole # while driving? 10 strokes vs 2 or 3
  • Thanks for the input Jeeplover, it helped some, but if I had handsfree calling, wouldn't i need to have the directory transfered? I am technically challenged when it comes to phones with all the different capabilities they have. LOL
  • Thanks Tim, The dealer will give a 30 Day trial. I will give it a try.
  • I forgot to add that I called Tom Tom and they didn't know.
  • Is EPT the same thing as "dead reckoning" where the GPS uses Direction, time, speed and other variables to estimate where you are if Sat. Signal is lost?

  • Thanks for the reply Tim Also, on the 920T; Is the traffic for only 1 year?
    in 920/920T Comment by CARDS1 November 2007
  • I will be buying a TT720 within the Week. I want to add POI's for some golf courses located around my region. can I just put the address of the Golf Course in the unit and save as a POI or will I have to use the computer to download files?
  • I think I saw on a site thet the 920 would be out by the end of Oct. I also read that the voice Recognition was mostly for POI's. Hopefully Tim can get one for review as soon as it is released.
  • I think i will wait on buying a unit until the 920 comes out. It was listed for only $100 more than the 720. Thanks Tim
  • Thanks for the reply. What i need to know is if I have the fastest Route selected but I dont want to drive through Major Cities can i use via routing to force it to take bypasses around these Cities and if so does the TT have to be hooked to the co…
  • Thanks for the reply Tim. Maybe I can downgrade from the TTGO720. Since Sirfstar Chip is no longer a necessity I basically just need in order of importance. via routing Text to Speech Bluetooth (don't need but may want later) any suggestions?
