Now there's one I didn't know about that sounds very useful. I'll give it a go once I've got my button fixed. I knew about the others, and use the 'reroute' one occasionally, though I'd forgotten about it when I was writing my previous message.

The car's in for a new button tomorrow, but I can't leave it there for more than the day, and chances are they won't have ordered the part even though I've asked them to. So I might have it fixed by tomorrow afternoon, though chances are it'll be next week (if I'm lucky.)

It's a shame about the (rather low) limit on the number of voice activated locations you can have. I used them up in no time at all. Also, I think the navigation and telephone voice prompt memories are separate, so you can't free off navigation voice prompt space by getting rid of some phone voice prompt entries

But overall, it is a cracking system. It wipes the floor with TomTom in every respect apart from configurable POI and the ability to use it in multiple vehicles. I still think TomTom is a class act in the world of sat-nav, so to upstage it takes some doing.
