PostForum: News And Latest Information   Posted: Mon Feb 20, 2012 12:49 pm   Subject: Is Technology Becoming A Distraction?

Its not possible to swap the traffic over to a different data supplier, it simply won't work - Mike

I think I already know the answer to this one, but I'm asking on the offchance.

I've just had a letter from TrafficMaster, telling me that my trusty YQ2 will be obsolete as of March next year. I ha ...

First, I'll answer the original question.

Yes, there are devices such as 'Snooper', but many suffer from the same problem as TomTom - i.e. they cost 3 figures to buy, so you'd be an idiot to leave ...

SORTED.
I don't know why but I decided to start from scratch and this time it has worked.

For shame, I haven't read all ten pages so far. I've skimmed the first six or so, so I apologise if I'm repeating things that I don't realise I'm repeating.

Firstly, surely this behaviour is anti- ...

I hold my hands up here. I was mucking around with the files to try to improve the text to speech quality, and I think I've dropped a clanger. The computer voice still operates in other respects, bu ...

There are two questions here really, is there a strong safety case? and is legislation the answer?
I don't believe there's a strong safety case, though I don't deny that there would be any overall sa ...
