I was kinda wondering that as well. I just bought a new one last week and really like it. Been working great and the free map upgrades for a lifetime and great for me since I'm a estimator and drive constantly to new places.
I forgot to mention in the post above, that while my Roadmate is driving to a destination in simulation mode, I have to periodically press a screen button, such as the ETA Tab in the lower left of the screen. Any button will work, I just like looking at the ETA Tab's data.
Otherwise, the Roadmate will exit the driving simulation and go back to the Destination Entry Screen.
By pressing a screen button, the Roadmate is "forced" to continue driving in simulation mode. I found this out when I was "viewing" a long route in simulation mode. After a while, the Roadmate would go to the Destination Entry Screen. But if I periodically pressed a button on the screen while I was viewing the long route in simulation mode, it would continue without going the the Destination Entry Screen.
Just guessing here, but the driving simulation must be on a timer. So that when there is no touch screen activity, the timer times out, and we are taken back to the Destination Entry Screen. But when I press a screen button, the timer is reset and I am allowed to continue driving in simulation mode. Just a guess, might be wrong about this. I will have to perform some timing experiments on a long driving simulation to see if it goes to the Destination Entry Screen at the same time, every time.
Hope I didn't muddle that up. I got a little long winded there.
