When you're in map mode (for navigation or just location) it would be nice if the little arrow showing where you are could be closer to the trailing edge of the screen instead of in the middle/leading edge. That way you'd be able to see more of the road layout ahead.

When it tells you to take the next exit from a motorway or trunk road, it would be helpful if it also said what the next move was (eg "Take the exit left then take the third exit at the roundabout...") even if that event is half a mile away. This would help you get into the right lane on the exit slip road.

Search through the contacts list easier if navigating to a contact.
I've got lot's of contacts so scrolling is no option.

In Navigation Mode it would be nice to be able to assign some of the functions in the drop down list to the PDA keys. It's a bit fiddly when driving and trying to select say North map orientation, or night/day illumination.

The distance remaining figure at the bottom right needs to be a bit bigger so I can read it without putting my reading glasses on (which isn't a good idea when you're driving). The distance to next turn at the top of the screen is about the right size.

An ETA or journey time remaining feature would be helpful, updated every 5 minutes or so. The duration given for route planning is usually wildly optimistic.

It might be useful to have a speed read out.

Although I've already got a digital speedo in the car, and after using the TomTom utility I know its reads exactly 5% high up to 100mph.

Its should really remember the north orienatation once set. But for the day/night it should know if its dark or not from the real time clock. I beleive TomTom offers this feature.

TomTom Navigator 2 doesn't offer automated day / night mode switching. The GPSassist add-on adds it - but the feature is problematic, and GPSassist really needs a complete rewrite (the code is so bad that I wouldn't let it anywhere near my iPAQ when I was still running Pocket PC 2002 - I very much doubt it would work on Pocket PC 2003 at all).

I live in hope that GPSassist will be rewritten - but I'm not holding my breath. It'll be interesting to see what of its features make their way into a new version of TomTom Navigator that I hope we'll see by the summer.


By the way, hi Dave - the name, nor the mention of Risc OS, are not exactly unfamiliar to me (I'm a former R&D engineer at SJ Research; my work was primarily on printing aspects of Nexus Networking). Of course, there's a much more powerful ARM inside my iPAQ than the ARM710 inside my Risc PC. There's at least three ARMs in the dual Xeon workstation I'm writing this on, too - two ARM9 cores in the LSIlogic U320 SCSI chip, and I believe one in the Seagate DDS4 tape drive. There could easily be more (anyone know what Seagate Cheetah 15K.3 disks are based on?). Maybe I should find the "ARM powered" label I had with my A5000 and stick it on the case above the Intel Xeon label!

comp.sys.acorn.misc newsgroup

There are many who would argue that Risc OS is THE OS for ARM chips.
ARM of course being developed by a number of clever bods at Acorn computers many years ago and used in a number of their desktop machines.
druck is one of a number who help keep what is left of the Acorn alive by imparting their knowledge and expertise.
Somewhat galling for many of us that the full commercial potential has been exploited by M/S and we may never see GPS software running on Risc OS Crying or Very sad
