Safety options (ie turns off inputs when on the move - but can be disabled)
Major "Plus" support, "safety" scamera's are now built in with auto updates - TomTom Buddies (WTF?) are also there... joys
Contact integration is much better if you have your friends addys in your ppc contact list
You can now nav to Long/Lat positions
POI's have been increased, as has the handling so you can now nav to POI "on the route"
Interface is clearer
However two major let downs for me:
1) Postcodes seem to have reverted back to first part only - Ie EX10 9EE wouln't be recognised just the EX10 part... maybe just the "version" I had but I tried a few
2) Real downer is the loss of "Rotate Screen". TomTom now only follows whatever mode your PDA is in by default I like my screen portrait for most things and landscape for nav but you can't do that with 6.
3) I noticed no "update" in the maps - everything in my local area v632 had.
I remember being annoyed when I changed to 5 from 3 because auto map zooming became the only option - they seem to have an obsession with removing stuff!
On the whole a reasonable update but two major losses caused me to downgrade for the time being.
For some reason I lost the keyboard when I went back to 5 - anyway I've since found that there is a flaw in version 6 to do with the postcodes - you need to move the ZIP folder from the SD card to the PDA's memory!
Well I registered my errr versions and both have been fine, bizarrely the ID seems to be made up of a combination of the device details and the tomtom software which means that even dodgy versions have a unique ID.... weird.
You dont have to put a full name and address in when registering
