I'm running TT6 on a N73. It has a few glitches like the sound disappears after receiving a call and it a bit slow. Its like having the wife navigate, "you wanted that turning".
One thing that drives me made is selecting a contact to navigate to. I have 470 contacts on my phone and I'd like to select a contact by typing in part of thier name. All I can type is the first letter on a key i.e a,d,g etc. my only option appears to scroll down which is a if you want to find zimmerman! Any ideas on how to get b & c etc.

Welcome

Just tried this on my N80. Does seem a bit of a pain - only uses the first alpha on the keyboard - seems to be a bit of a bug there.

As for slow navigation - this is possibly due to having too many active POIs. Disable the ones you don't need. On TomTom POIs are loaded into memory and loading lots will slow things down dramatically.
