Everything fine with my START using my old XP machine but the 64 bit laptop doesn't allow some features like START manual or the ROUTE PLANNER. Mouse click on either results in a brief flash of 'what looks like a dos dialogue window' and then nothing happens. BTW Have downloaded the new software and like the Lat & Long input facility - Yippee !!

Using IE9? If so, try running in xp compatibility mode.

Thanks dhn. How does one set up to run in 'xp compatibility mode'? Is it a permanent mode or can you casually go in and out? If all else fails I'll do my planning on the tired old XP machine that is really past its sell by date!

On the desktop shortcut for IE9, right click and select 'properties', then click on the 'compatibility' tab and select from the drop down menu.

Route Planner problem

I just encountered a similar problem. TomTom Route Planner activated from TOMTOM HOME causes the brief flash of a Black 'dos' style window, not long enough to read anything. But if I use the Plan a route on the Task bar it opens Internet Explorer 9 and I can do route planning. Any idea what the command is that is activated by clicking on the Route Planner button in Home (and what it should be ) so I can see if it is not calling the correct file?


Thanks for any suggestions
