  • Pixmania :roll: I thought as much! Nearly asked you. But you ought to be able to quote bits of Section 12.1 of their own Terms & Conditions (Legal Guarantees ) back at them, as well as pointing out that as it was sold in the UK, UK consume…
  • Maurice, although it's not broken you can argue that it's not 'fit for purpose'. It doesn't do the job it's designed or advertised to do. I do think it's a software glitch but it's very odd that the mobile version has the same problems - that sugge…
  • Another observation, both for my 7310 and the mobile software. My nearest town (small) is 4 miles away to the south. My fastest route to most places south takes me through the town. If I ask navigon (either one) to take me to town, it's fine - ta…
  • Putting a message on facebook might have helped as I got the repair offer the next morning. I will look into getting a refund from pixmania.com where I bought it but not sure if they will as it's not technically "broken" just unsatisfactory. Incid…
  • The simulated route is the same as the actual route. For example at a cross roads 100m from my house it almost always suggests a left or right turn when straight on is shorter. It's not just the random detours for no reason, but the "fastest" or "…
  • I got a reply from navigon this morning offering a "repair". Not sure what this can achieve as this is clearly a programming / routing issue not a hardware one.
  • I hadn't seen that but I'll take a look later. Anything is worth trying..
  • It can't be just us two. There must be others just haven't reported it? It doesn't seem to matter which route type I try none make sense. My regular route to work is 18 miles, no motorways, tolls etc. There is one town, takes maybe 2 to 5 mins t…
  • Hi Steve. When I check for a software update I'm told the unit is up to date and I have the latest maps also so this isn't the issue. For some reason the routing software seems to ignore the most obvious, direct routes and goes for less obvious an…
  • Hi Mossief, I can commiserate but little more (see my recent post above)! I've just bought a 8410 and have the same problem. I called support and they advised software upgrade (done) and map upgrade (done) after which to test the device (not done ye…
  • I had the same thing try changing the route profile to scenic instead of fast or short. This got 20 min shorter routes then what the short or fast routing would choose. Thanks but this makes little difference on the routes I've tried.
  • Not just, "not quite as good". The nearly 600 replies in this Nuvi thread might disagree with you. :) Every GPS on the market will pick a bad route from time to time. I agree that the Navigon devices pick strange routes a little more often than most…
  • That has been my experience as well-- Navigon devices are pretty good but don't provide quite as good routes as Garmin or TomTom. Not just, "not quite as good". This morning I left my house going to work, asked it for the shortest route as a test. …
  • I did a couple of the tweaks mentioned on my 7200t, but never to the routing specs so I can't comment directly. The info can be found here: http://www.gpspassion.com/forumsen/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=97186&whichpage=1 Thanks. Unfortunately the se…
