    The GPS on my Qualcom does the same thing with the I80, not sure why. I just got a 510, first week using it, I went by the scale on I80 near I57 and it did give a notice. The one thing I can't figure out is the warnings on overhead clearance, all I ever get is a notice after I have passed. (1st day I took it in my car around Chicago just to see what it would do)
    Other than that, I still have to get use to it. Heading to Newark tomorrow, I am interested in seeing how it does.

    Where did it show you the warning after you passed an overhead clearance?

    The TND will usually route you around the restriction and the routing to you may seem odd, but that is the reason. A restriction was on the route.

    I will check up on the other issue. I beleive Qualcomm uses NavTeq also so could be in the map data.

    Thanks,

    This was the response I got in an email from the Amazon page we were talking about....*S*

    Hello,

    We only have 1 left in stock of the TND-700 and that is why the price is
    still high. We've just never adjusted it down to clear out the last one.

    I know Pilot's dropped the price of the 700 down. You might check around.

    Rand cannot control the folks whom sell the TND's, Rand can only suggest a retail price.

    Thanks,

    If you reboot the correct speed should have been shown. It has to do with the way the speeds are build into the road segments.

    Thanks,

    I'm thinking of buying a 510. Can anyone tell me if it can be switched to car mode, and more importantly, are all map updates free?
    I heard free for life and I heard free for 30 days. I can't seem to find the answer on their website.
    Thanks in advance.

    Minor annoyance. I -70 through Mo. Exit 41 highway O. Every time I pass that section of road. My unit tells me to exit at that ramp, and then get right back on. This happens every time I pass this section of road, doesn't seem to matter which direction I am traveling either.

    Can anybody tell me a better way to set up my truck stats on the 700. Im thinking I need to reduce the weight from 80000 down to a car weight? I have so much trouble with incorrect routing on my 700. Almost any big city USA after leaving shipper/receiver it will take me on a 2-5 miles detour when there is highway ramp just a few hundred yards away from current location.

    I am set to: 8 wide, 13 2" and 75000lbs

    I guess I should probably start reporting these errors, but my goodness there are so many it would be a full time job. Anyway we could get a screen-shot capture feature to help with reporting these errors?

    I update at least a couple times a month.
