TOMTOM MOBILE 6 on JAMin - can the road speed indication be switched off??

8 posts in this topic

I am running TOMTOM Nav 6 on my Jamin and one of the tweaks TT have added is to show the road speed limit next to your actual speed and flash red if you go over. :D

Does anyone know of any way this function can be disabled... ive searched but can't find anything editable.. ;)

It doesn't show it on all roads, only for ones that it thinks it knows the speed limit for. Thers has got to be some script somewhere that tells it to associted speed limits with certain roads but i cant find it. ;)

If it doesn't "know" the speed limit then it just shows the speed as normal, so i fugured if I could delete all speed/road associations It would go back to normal. Just gotta find em. :D

Just realised - I don't have my speed shown in TT6. I sort of rely on the car to tell me how fast I'm going!

So, perhaps if you switch that option off in TT6, it will also stop comparing how fast TT6 thinks you are going with how fast it thinks you *should* be going?

Just a thought...

Yeah turning it off would be the easy option but I quite like to see close to what speed i am actually doing as opposed to within whatever the tolerance of the speedo on my car is.

Just hard to please i am .... gona keep hunting.. ;)

I do not know for certain, but I would guess that the speed information is embedded in the maps somewhere and therefore not easily accessible

It's in status bar preferences. Page 4 on the preference pages.

Oops sorry. Just re-read what you're actually looking for ;)

Have a look in manage POI's. There's loads of speed type signs in there. All mine are unticked, which is probably why I didn't know what you were talking about at first as I don't get that.
