    The 500 does these so the 700 should be able to as well.

    They need to recolor the map more like a normal one. Varying shades of brown just doesn't look right. It'd be nice if they had time to cross check some of the roads they have marked as valid routes with the restrictions list too.

    1. Not at this time. This is a feature that is on Rand's list.

    2. You can switch to either 3D or 2D, once you are in the view you like it will stay in that view unless you switch it.

    3. You can switch between 3D, North Up, or Direction Up. As in 2, once you select your setting it stays in that setting.

    Thanks,
    Mark

    The next map update is in QA right now. Mapping updates are done all at once as the files are intertwined in the database. What you submit is checked and corrected in the database.

    The updates you get from the TND Dock will be POI, Global and Construction updates, and also version updates when released.

    Thanks,
    Mark
