    Bug report:

    Once on i72, around New Berlin, IL, the tnd cancels its route from Chicago to Phoenix. A message pops up saying no legal route could be found (even though it was already on a route when it cancelled).

    This lasted until I crossed into MO on i72/us36...

    settings:
    40,000 lbs
    48'
    8'
    5axles
    13'6"
    allow freeway
    avoid uturn
    avoid border
    avoid ferry





    Also, it did not know about the following truck stops along i72/us36:

    BP Monroe City, MO
    Loves Bevier, MO
    Conoco Hamilton, MO

    I don't like when the traffic lines are so thick that they block the route line. As I approach large intersections like this I sometimes have no idea where i'm going. This is the 520 and 3D view. I think this may only occur in 3D view but not certain. The 7inch screens may not have this problem. I need to shut off traffic many times to avoid this problem.

    How do you capture a screenshot on the TND Tablet? The GPS and the tablet parts.

    On the upper right swipe down. You will see about 10 boxes. Screenshot is 3rd row down, to far right.

    Thanks,

    I have my 520 hooked to my moto-x 2nd gen hotspot. The 520 will give me the message wi-fi connection lost. This has been going on for a couple of weeks. One day last week I hooked to my wife's phone (same as model as mine) and had no issues. Is this a phone issue or is there an issue with the latest Rand update?
    Thanx,
    Ron

    Your phone - drops Wi-Fi
    Wife's phone - does not drop Wi-Fi.

    Humm

    I would check your security settings on your phone.

    Thanks,

    Is there a criteria RM uses on whether or not it includes a weigh station in the database? For example, why is the sb Cottonwood, CA scale in the system (almost never open) but the occasionally open median scale near Crow Agency, MT isn't?

    Then there are dozens of inspection stations (without built-in scales) not in the system. US93 just north of Salmon, ID; us93 near lolo, MT; broadway street in Missoula, MT; etc

    The GPS was never ment to replace signs, it should not be ment as a babysitter.

    From what I have noticed, the only ones in the system are the ones open more often then not and have built in scales

    Who said anything about baby sitter?

    I like to trip plan using every bit of info available, and weigh station locations are part of that (e.g. would rather drive an extra 50 miles at night to cross a likely closed scale instead of hitting one at 0800 when officers are more eager to start inspecting...)
