    Default Upcoming, and neat, TomTom features

    Saw these in the latest TomTom newsletter that I get....

    Advanced lane guidance - very nice! Something I've wished for for a long time.

    IQ routes - handy, if it works as well as made out - all depends on the data being fed back to TomTom.

    The lane guidance one is one I can't wait to see. All too often I've only had seconds to work out which filter side to take at some complex junctions, and on occasions end up taking the wrong one or simply can't get across to the right one quick enough.

    I'm still wanting the bluetooth phones calls to be outputted to the ear phone socket on the side of the screen mount. That way, I'll be able to get it through the car speakers very easily.

    Nav directions are outputted to this socket, BUT phone calls are routed through the tomtom internal speaker, which isn't the best in the world for either volume or clarity.

    Curiosity got the better of me so I clicked on the newsletter link. Oh dear, I had to laugh at these two......

    "I derived my seduction methods from my sister, who believes love is predestined. She always falls for the guy she keep bumping into, thinking it's a sign. Well I decided to create signs myself!! Here's how: when it rains and I see a pretty girl, I make sure my windscreen wipers are perfectly synch with hers (left-right-left-right, like a crowd waving for Jamie Cullum). Then when she goes right, I do too. When she stops, I do. She will be intrigued, I assure you!"


    Intrigued?!! She'll think you're a flippin' stalking her!! lol

    "When I spot a nice girl in traffic, I will drive at the lane next to her for a long time. After a while I will create a small gap in front of me, a perfect empty spot for her to speed up a little. Once she switches lanes, I will signal to her she's welcome at my lane. She will give me a thank-you-wave. I will wave back and catch her eye!"


    Oh dear, methinks somebody needs to get out more!

    I think that's to be announced - but I'm assuming it'll be on the next version of the software?
