    Map info

    UK_Ireland:

    UK and the Irish republic
    Version 2006.Q1.4156 - map of Navteq. HLG 3, LSD, Toll roads, RDS TMC, WES2, FAS, Long post codes. Mp122. D01. Signed map
    David as already mentioned above CF RC2 is missing postcodes, yet when I press F1 in the gps screen and get the destinator screen up it shows all postcodes so this is therefore a problem with CF and not my maps. When you did something to make postcodes show quicker you must have broke something.

    I'm looking into it... The postcode speed issues were manual me switching from a text to binary search when clicking the keyboard...

    All the items should still be in the list, they are for the North American maps I have...

    It could be a map compatiblity issue, but I know you say it worked previously, so I am looking into it...

    If you have the lastest uk maps try search for postcode NG13 and see if it shows in the list on RC2

    if I search for a street name it doesn't show me if its a street, a road, an avenue, a crescent, a close, a way...

    Makes it impossible to know you have the right destination selected

    Does regular Destinator do this? If so then I can request them to get it fixed/added and shouldn't be a problem, but if it's not in the standalone then it will take a little longer, but I will request it...

    Right I have tested this in the car and I have noticed the following.

    1) Speed still does not show correctly
    2) I used the same maps with RC1 and RC2 yet in RC2 I had some postcodes missing from the search
    3) David, there is still a problem in the gps section when you try and search for an address using streets or citys. If you have streets called carnarvon close, carnarvon place or carnarvon drive you only get to see the first word in the address field on the left. If I search for carnarvon Close I see 7 carnarvon on the left??? This actually stops you using that kind of search for an address if there are more instances of the first part of the address
    4) Activating single click seems to behave like you are doubleclicking. Ie go to settings and click on the down arrow and instead of showing item 1/18 then 7/18, 13/18 and 18/18 it goes straight to 18/18. I even had it where it was double clicking on increase volume and even clicking on the eye icon in nav it then automatically clicked on shows turns.
    5) Orient North and orient forward seemed to be the wrong way round. Clicking on orient forward changed the map to show North at the top.
    6) Pausing the music for gps directions is too long for some voice prompts. Ie When it says "Turn Left in ....." Music will be paused for up to 3-4 secs more. I suggest instead of pausing the music but to lower the music volume like FD does, or even add it as an option to choose which you prefer.
    7) Street Name does not show anymore in the box which shows speed.

    Due to the following and more so with the gps not showing all postcodes like RC1 does I have had to uninstall and reinstall RC1. Also I have reproduced these errors/bugs on both my desktop and carpc.
    David as posted before whats happening with points 3 and 6.

    point 3 is very important and I attach screenshots showing what D6 shows and CF shows

    the above post illustrates my point.

    In the last two days I've been out looking at houses averaging some 50miles/day (at street level not on fast roads), find the addresses off the net (without PostCodes ), and then using my swanky CarPC to get to each one...

    Problem is that some common street names might occur 20 or 30 times in the list. But I have no way of telling which is which without going through them all one by one

    It is also deadly slow once you select, street/city it might take two minutes to load the next screen. Once I try a street and find its the wrong one in the wrong town, it then takes another 1-2minutes to return to the street list.

    I can't use city/street as some streets are listed under a local town, others seem to be listed under the main BIG town.

    Royton, is a small town/village in of Oldham, yet it is in the list on its own right, yet Shaw, another small Town/Village in Oldham has its addresses listed as Oldham?

    Address Preview also doesn't work, instead it just goes back to the map of the current location meaning you have to wait for all the menus again.

    Eventually I have been able to find everywhere I wanted, BUT on at least 3 occassions we had to park up for 5-10minutes whilst I ****ed about in NAV trying to find the correct destination... It would have been quicker to look them up on an traditional A-Z Map!

    AND ITS ONLY JUST OCCURED TO ME THAT I COULD HAVE USED D6's OWN MENUS

    I have the exact problems Shawjohn, I have been using postcodes where I can but when I installed RC2 I lost most of them for some reason yet using the same map RC1 was fine???

    Also point about speed when using destinators own menu to search for an address it was instant on both my M10000 in the car and my amd desktop yet using CF it took forever just to change screens as the above post explains.
