I only realised yesterday that v5.5 was available so I have grabbed it and used it for the commute this morning. Some comments
1) It's still disappointing that an upgrade removes all of the 'My Places' and you have to start from scratch. As I've said before I would expect beta testing of a new version to include the upgrade process and for me this is a fail.
2) You can now be selective in the alerts you get while driving (Reporting Options) on the Blackberry. This is great and means that I'm not getting pestered by '3 star zones' all the time.
3) Option to choose a new voice is a nice touch. This is the one thing that my children always ask if we use Telmap instead of TomTom on family journeys - "can it have a funny voice?". A way to personalise and add a bit of colour to a boring drive is nice.
4) The new information bar when navigating is very good. The progress bar, distance to destination and the alternating time/time remaining. This does render the 'route info' widget as redundant. Is this now screen space that could be an optional current speed./legal speed indicator?

Overall it's once again a step forward. I'll add more comments as I use it more.

Having played with a few voices they are good quality but need some indication of the language. Why give an English description of a Butler voice if the voice installed is in German? Rolling Eyes
