    All, since Tomtom appears to be reading this forum, and in hopes of helping Tomtom prioritize their problem resolution efforts, I am setting up this list as a way for people to vote for their most important bugs.

    How to vote:
    >>> Vote Here <<<

    Please reply to the thread in the link above with your most important bugs, and rate each from 1 (little importance to you) to 5 (very important to you). Also, if the bug is specific to a particular Tomtom model, please note your model number.

    About once a week, I'll edit this list with a tabulation of everyone's results. Hopefully, someone from Tomtom is reading this, and will consider the votes of this community as it prioritizes its fixes.

    A couple of ground rules:
    - Only report functionality that doesn't work properly, or that was removed/disabled since the initial product release. I set up a separate thread for voting for new features here.
    - Only report unresolved bugs. Don't report issues that have been resolved in the latest software/map for a device, or that can't be permanently fixed by reformatting/resetting your Tomtom. I'll remove items from the tabulation as Tomtom resolves them.
    - Only report bugs for software released in the last 2 years. If your device hasn't had a software update in 24 months, it's probably orphaned and not likely that any bugs will be fixed.
    - If you're not sure if something is a bug, please post a separate thread asking for help first. To rule out hardware issues affecting a particular device, I'll only post issues that have been reported or confirmed by multiple members.
    - If you see another idea you like, vote for it too. I'll count total votes when I tabulate totals.
    - I'll default to a rank of 3 if not specified.
    - If you change your mind, reply to the thread with a new post with all your votes again. I'll replace all your old votes with the new ones. Please don't edit an earlier post as I may not see it.
    - Don't include map data errors, there is a separate thread for mapshare updates here. Feel free to report systemic problems with maps or routing.
    - To prevent spamming, I'll only tabulate votes from members who have made at least one non-spam/non-intro post somewhere on this forum, between 15 and 120 days prior to voting. New members, please wait 15 days after a prior post before voting.
    - Only report bugs with applications released in the last 2 years. The goal of this thread is to hopefully get Tomtom's attention to fix issues, and I doubt Tomtom will spend time on 2-year-old software.

    Here are the current vote totals:
