No speech notification of . . . . . .
Pleased that a trip through 10 European countries showed the device to work without fault and if watching the screen the borders are shown when you cross them (with a very feint line).
However, I don't drive with one eye on the screen but listen to the speech in the main. And that is what is annoying - when crossing or about to cross a border there is no warning or notification whatsoever, so one crosses from country to country without being aware of the crossing point - especially on minor roads where often there is no signage.
This I believe is a major flaw. Motoring regulations are not the same in every country and there is a need to know when a border is crossed.
A colleagues sat nav device from a different manufacturer gave clear and concise notice of 'border ahead' and/or 'you have just crossed . . . . . '
You can call support with that request. They'll log it and the feature might make it into a future map. Maybe..........

Oh, welcome to TTF!!

Ah yes, as in France, where the Gendarmerie Nationale is too cheap to provide breath-a-lyzers and so one must carry one's own device in the car! Truly amazing.
