I have a Mortar Board Hat (like when you graduate) in top left of screen while driving!

What is it and what does it mean?

Never seen anything that looks like what you describe.
Can you post a picture? Either run the "virtual" on-screen TomTom in Home and do a screen grab, or just take a picture of the screen with a camera. Post it on some webspace or Photobucket type of sharing site and put a link to it here.

Does anything happen if you tap it?
Is it the compass?
If you look through the ON-LINE MANUAL for your model, is there anything that looks like what ou are seeing?

Saying what model and software version you have, might help too.

It means your in a school zone. Use the Safety Preferences option to turn on/off.

400 views and only one correct answer, I guess this goes some way to show that this "feature" gets a lot of use (NOT), I bet most of us have never seen the symbol on the screen Embarassed - Mike

Round our way, THIS would be a better icon to warn of approaching a school:

It does, you just haven't found it yet try:
Change Preferences/ Safety Preferences and select the "Warn when near places of worship or schools" pick a sound and give it a try - Mike

Yehbutnobut there aren't any schools in my POIs - there are places of worship, but no schools. Oh and I meant my GO920 hasn't got schools onnit innit. So when I changed to warn for schools/places of worship and the school next door didn't warn, I thought I'd look for it in the POIs and there wasn't a Schools category. Mind you, my nearest places of worship are Cardiff metropolitan cathedral, then Salisbury Cathedral, Winchester cathedral, Cardinal newmans oratory and Birmingham buddhist vihara. Good job I don't have kids at home to send off to Sunday School.

Curious.....if you power up TTHome and go to ADD Maps and then POI's, does it list schools as an available download for free?
