    Is there a key to TomTom maps that lists what symbols/colors are used to identify stuff like toll roads, major roads, secondary streets, etc? The map on my new GO 620 has symbols I'm not familiar with: for example, a red crisscross pattern on a stretch of road, a solid black line or rectangle. Would be nice to know what these things mean.

    Does this give you any clues? http://tinyurl.com/yaznkl8f

    For years and years I have asked to code toll roads in a different colour. Seems to be falling on death ears.

    Clearly the map uses some system of colors/line widths to distinguish main roads from secondary roads, etc., but I don't see where it's documented in the manual. My old XL used to distinguish toll roads -- what's more, I was able to customize the color for that, and every other type of road! I guess it's all about driverless cars these days. o_O
