Has any body else noticed that when typing in your email address for the tomtom plus service in TTN5, there is no underscore.
As my email address has an underscore in it then this presents a bit of an issue.

Am I going mad and not seeing something that's right under my nose.

Good catch. You will need to use Remote Display Control or other desktop tools to enter an underscore.

Make sure you report this issue to TomTom.

If you are using the ABCDE keyboard, hit the 123 button, then hit the #&? button to bring up all the punctuation marks, including an underscore.

If, like me, you are using the QWERTY keyboard, the #&? button is there on the first keyboard screen (or, at least, it is in landscape mode).

I just checked the various screens again in case I missed something, you will find that there is a dash "-" on the #&? screen but not an underscore "_".

Nor on mine. Top row fourth one in is an apostrophe.

Right, it works in Landscape mode but not in Portrait! In Portrait I only get six columns of characters, in Landscape I get eight.
