    The most consistent errors I have found have been the database's lack of low clearances...I was in Rochester, NY and it steadily headed me into low clearances(and I checked to make sure my height was set properly)...And these weren't knewly built...

    OK.. if I had a Tad bit more information I could check the restrictions to see if they were missing or not.

    Thanks,

    Even the Rand Atlas only listed one of the bridges I saw...One was on Brown St at the 490 overpass...If you look at it on map, I had to deliver to Silver St(about 100' from that bridge) at the lil dead end you can see which ends almost at Saxton parallel to Maple...The arrow is not pointing to shipper...

    [​IMG]

    The GPS kept trying to send me on Brown St to get there and to leave...IIRC, it was 12'4"...The area is littered with low bridges and the GPS didn't recognize any of them...

    Hope that's enough info...

    Here's an area the TND 510 still shows me off the road. It's US-59 between I-35 (East of Ottawa, KS) to Lawrence, KS. It is a newly finished 4-lane. us59.png


    Also the speed limit is 70mph not 55. I've sent RM the "Tell Rand" correction.

    Thank you Mark. Before updating my 510, it would very seldom warn about Sharp curves. Now there's numerous times the Curve Ahead warning pops up.

    Could they make it easier to enter addresses? I find it very frustrating when I have a street address to enter it. I must go through a litany of screens, to be told it's an invalid address. I don't often have an actual address to deliver to, but recently have had some provide just the numerical street address without directions.

    The Driving Day hours warnings both 11 & 14, no longer pops up. I have them set and was using them. More times then naught, I run up against both. I have them set to warn me 1.25 hrs prior to expiring.

    That's funny as I have my warnings set to audio only and get no pop-up at all, just the verbal warnings.

    Address issue has been updated as to how to enter the address on the next version.

    make sure under Truck Tools/warnings make sure it is set to visual.

    Thanks,
    Mark

    I've always had the warnings set to visual. I'll check again this next week to see if it will work.
