there are lots of us.

What's the question?

I think there are gremlins. I typed out a long message but only the title appeared. I will try again. Is there a tomtom model that 1. lets you sort favourites into custom folders 2. Lets you choose an alternative route before you start driving. My Garmin Nuvi won;t do either of these and I want to sell it and buy a tomtom more suitable to its purpose. I would also like text to speech if possible and French maps. Incidentally does the mapshare facility work well? Thanks

To the best of my knowledge here are the answers to your questions:

1: No

2: Yes

Text to Speech; yes, some of the new Tom-Toms have this, and French maps are included on the European models. The accent when French is spoken is not very good.

Map Share: this is still in its very early days, and reports about it are variable. It should improve in time as more reports are submitted and confirmed.

Map Share: from reading current postings on this forum, it seems Map Share is "playing up" at present. No updates are possible.

Thanks anchor for your link. Unfortunately it appears to be a dead link.

superhoops: Its worth while registering on this forum. There are some real experts there that have most Tom Tom models, and willingly give advice.
