    after updates, when should this kick in with the nice view that actually looks like a highway with the green signage? i am just seeing arrows on bottom of screen.

    With a new (ish) map any that are v8xx and latest application (8,351) it should display both Lane Assist (the arrows) and Reality View (the fancy static pictures) but not all junctions are covered, in the UK its quite good coverage but there are huge gaps where nothing happens. In Canada Reality View doesn't work at all as no junctions are covered as I understand it - Where are you located? - Mike

    Mike, in Canada....... NEITHER the ALG (Lane Assist) OR Reality View exist in the current NA map.

    Cleveland is NOT Canada!

    Lane Assist is available on US mapping as is Reality View for those intersections where data has been imbedded in the map.

    In the States:

    1. Advanced Lane Guidance, also known as Lane Assist IS avaialble in all mapping.
    2. Reality View will appear from time to time, usually highway exits in all States.

    I never said it was NOT available in NA. I DID say that Canadian maps do NOT have either feature.

    Clear enough????

    Well..........ok.

    With a 730, I need to know the application version and the map and its version number. Tap the satellite bars to see the application installed and tap the version number to see the map and its version number.

    With application 8.351 and the latest map 845, there should be advanced lane guidance and reality view, if available for the area you are in. Mostly on main highways.

    Look through preferences on your unit. On page 3, it should say 'Hide Lane Images'. That setting, convoluted as it seems, means that Reality View WILL show, if available.

    Well, you may have to update your map to see current information. (while 810 may have had some IQ data imbedded in it, more data gets added with each map release. There have been 5, maybe 6 maps, since 810 with another due within a month.)
