a house number that also contains letters such as "N234W2124 Elm Street" on the TT1? It appears that only house numbers can be entered. I know that mapquest can handle handle these types of addresses.
I just love the TT die hards who say, find a cross street... how are you going to find the cross street when you are sitting in your car trying to find a place and you don't know where it is and you don't have a phone number to call? What idiots these TT users are. Or better yet, key in the coordinates... yeah, that could happen. If I could get the coordinates then why spend money on this? I am thinking of ditching the 920 just so I am not associated with these numb nuts.
Im not going to call anyone idiots here. I do however agree with him. Many rural areas (I live in Wisconsin) have this combination on numbers/letters and TomTom can't navigate you to these addresses because they are not in the database. Only number address (cities/villages) tend to be in tomtom which can get very confusing and frustrating as one doesn't usually know cross streets/zip code etc...This is a serious flaw that TomTom needs to update!
dhn got a little emotional... I am not saying that everyone here is an idiot... just the ones who claim you can solve the TT shortcoming by entering GPS coordinates or cross streets. In March, the Magellan 4250 is available at Costco for only $249 including TrafficKit. At that time the 920 goes back. I pocket $150 and can navigate to addresses TT won't recognize. I will miss GPRS traffic. I'll miss being able to move a POI. But I won't miss dhnFirst of all, everybody here is a user of a tomtom product. This community is for users helping users. God knows I have given information to users where I meant well, but the info or suggestions didn't work.
In your eyes, I guess that makes me an 'idiot' and I'm a 'numb nut'.
Trust me, with your attitude, you don't want to know what I think you are. Why don't you return the tomtom and leave this forum. Go and infect someplace else. ASAP.
