I agree. It is frustrating to not estimate/choose routes because of this limitation.

Question Tunnels

Is there a way to determine when you should be going into a tunnel?
Sometimes I realize that was what I should have done and I need to turn around.

Hi Chritieann,
Thank you for contacting us.

To answer your question... There isn't... Reason being is, we built this from the ground up and the computers don't know when it is in a tunnel or a regular road. We think if you zoom in a little you will obviously see the turn coming up and you will see it is a tunnel.
Hope that helps...

There is a lot of tools and information on this app. They did add voice to the GPS storing information addresses like on your maps on Google I haven't found how to do that yet or if you can. I am 58 years old so you have to remember when designing such programs they need to be user-friendly this one is getting better.

Hi Billk2148,

To find any address or place just go to the "Search" button on the top right in the Main menu and type in your address.

Once it finds your address, click it and then down in the middle left you will see "Favorite this place"....Click it and hit ok.

Now go back to the Main Menu and click "Favorites" and you can Edit the name of your address by holding down on it until the*box pops up. Then type in Home.

You can also move it to the very top of your Favorites if it isn't already there by clicking "Edit" and then to the right of it, There are*3 little lines. You can hold down on those and move your Favorites around.

Now you will always have it there.


We also have a section on the Main Menu called "Take a Tour". Click on that and you will see what every single function we have does.
You can zoom in by pinching your fingers out so you can read it better... There are 7 different pages to look at and learn what everything does.

If you need any other information, please feel free to contact us by clicking our email address below.
