In TT3 with TTBT, is it just me, or does the large delta wing icon showing current position spend most of its time on the wrong side of the road when driving along UK main roads?

Its not too bad when on the side roads but on the main (yellow) ones it's well over on the right-hand side. (Not been on the motorway yet).

DAK, are there any adjustments that can be made to compensate.

Also, can the time displayed on screen be adjusted for BST?

.....I'll add that a TT handbook in the style of Garmin would not go amiss!

Well, my set-up shows me on the middle or left side of the road. As far as BST is concerned, have you set your PDA to BST, it calculates the arrival time using the time on the PDA...?

Would putting the TTBT receiver on the left side of the car help?

Think the GPS time is UTC which is a kind of worldwide time.

Re the driving on the right - I have seen this on a couple of roads and one dual carriageway - I guess in these instances it is just map errors - but not all the time.

Does it do this on every road you drive?

One thing I have noticed re time reporting is that when I was using a pretec cf-lp card with my old ipaq 3850 the ipaq time (on the today screen) would automatically update to be the same as the one reported by the gps unit (adjusted for gmt/bst - it was always spot on). On my 2210 with the haicom bt slipper this doesn't happen - is there anyway to make this so?
