a) After zooming out, I think that 'Champley' happens to be the centre of the full Euro (1.6gb sized) map. My device also stays on this view _if_ MioMap2 is unable to either get a GPS signal, or the GPS COM:4 port is being used by another piece of GPS software. Hence the Euro.map loads & just sits there in its centred co-ordinates. If you know that the GPS receiver is fine & MioMap2 is indeed talkng to it & you still get the problem... then I don't know.
I don't mess about with ring tones... but I do find that my A701 likes to reset the power 'off' settings now and again e.g. unchecking the 2 min screen off when on AC power... that kind of thing.
The worst thing my A701 does is give Memory allocation errors in MioMap2 = software reset. This happens at least 25% of the time, usually immediately after asking the device to calculate a route. I hope Mio release a patch soon, as for this reason alone, MioMap2 cannot be recommended as a serious SatNav tool, well, not on my A701. (4gb Transcend + 1.6 gb euro.map installed) - perhaps this is the problem? (FAT32 on the 4Gb card?) Have you had these errors?
Otherwise, I have been very happy with the device / PDA / work / Phone etc GPS sensitivity is excellent - GPSdash2 a treat... if only no Mem Allocation errors. A serious downer for me.
Oh & I still can't receive MMS on Orange UK - I've researched the web for several hours & know all the settings (new MMS, settings menu & correct IP etc) - I can send ok, but when I receive, I just get 2 blank SMS (yes, SMS) messages. Anyone help? I think it has something to do with OrangeWEB versus OrangeMMS, but changing these around stops GPRS internet access & I still get 2 blank SMS whenever anyone sends me an MMS.
