It's not the battery
If the unit won't turn on even when in the cradle, then there is a problem with the unit itself. Even with a completely dead battery (like mine), your 920 should work fine when plugged in. You'll need to replace the whole thing. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.
Route IQ speeds would be hidden for support cost reasons too. The very term "IQ speed" could prove confusing to some people, and there will be those who call in asking why the speed is so high or so low (actual speeds vary with driving style among other things).
I too would welcome realtime...
Generally not replaceable
The batteries are generally not replaceable, though if you've owned your unit less than a year they'll replace it for you at the factory. My battery (GO 920T) is down to about 5-10 minutes.

Any smarter about highways
It's worth upgrading to me if the new map finally understands the difference between a highway and, well, everything else. I expect the cause of my earlier reported problem has to do with the properties of the roads. For example, I almost never hear the "take the...
Some cars provide additional information via Bluetooth, e.g. whether the headlights are on or off (which can trigger the TomTom to use day/night profiles). Could that be the Car Preferences too or is that handled elsewhere?
and Co is
I can almost understand Doctor and Saint. I can even understand why my cell phone with a default name of "WM_mmiller" (Windows Mobile) was pronounced "William m m i l l e r," but Co (County) sounds like "Coke". Figure that one out... I wonder if ppsi is Pepsi.
Yeah, tried that on my TomTom but editing an exit name is apparently no different from editing a street name. Since TTS seems to read the green and white signs, that's what has to be edited.
Sounds like I'm already doing the right thing; thanks for the confirmation.
I've got a GO 920T with firmware 8.302 and map 825. Several streets and exits have now changed name per what's shown at the top of the screen and per what Loquendo is being fed, however those new names are a bit off. For example, it's fed "Co Hwy G2 / Lawrence Expy" which is technically...
Typically the answer to that is, it will be mostly a business decision, based on this question: Is there enough value in the feature that people would be willing to upgrade or pay more for a newer model to get it?
There's also the side question of whether it takes additional processing power...
