Hello,

Does anyone have any ideas as to what the white dots are for on the route line in TomTom Navigator 3. They appear in "daylight colours" mode and seem to be randomly spaced out along your route. I did think at first that they had some sort of technical meaning, but now I'm thinking they may just provide a reference to help you see movement along the road???

Can't find anything out about them from documentation or on the Internet, does anyone know what they're for? If anything?!

I believe those are actual stored vector points. If you look on curves those appear to be straight lines between two dots.

the white dots on the route are arrows - zoom in and you will see they point the way!

Many thanks for your responses.

I can see how these dots could be the stored vectors. It doesn't seem to make sense to display them though don't you agree?

I wonder why they decided not to make them visible in night colours mode?
