Just got a TomTom 6200 wifi model (so I can avoid draining the phone and running afoul of the LAW) and oh boy is it SLOW. Once you are navigating it mostly keeps up but before you set off the menus an ...

SO the OP is incorrect? Well good, because as I said, most satnavs need some interaction at some point, especially TomTom.

As you were, I'll go back to sleep now.

6.c.1 would include receiving traffic alerts, regardless of whether any such data were sent from the device so even TMC alerts would be against the rules.

@mistersaxon

Many PNDs offer integration with the phone to allow ...

OK then. Another suggestion, switch the phone to answer phone and don't fiddle with the satnav function whilst driving.

Yes, that could work. Will be necessary to put a suitable disclaimer on the v ...
