Where did you find out how to get to the hidden windows? what is the sequence you use?

OK, this is on a NUVI 1450. In the top left of the screen press the signal meter and hold a few seconds, this will bring up a window showing satellites around the earth according to where YOU are located, some times this might take a few moments to load. Also on the page "Where to?" sometimes you press and hold the battery strength symbol and this opens up a whole gambit of windows to view and play with. Be careful, these are not supposed to be accessed except by technicians. Be aware of if any changes you make with colors and sounds and tests. My apology to the original post, I wasn't trying to steer your post. Sorry. Have fun

It's quite alright. I am sure many will stumble upon this and learn something from it.

We have one from "Mullet Man" who speaks in a heavy southern drawl and uses cute little sayings while giving directions... and another, "Sylvia" who, well let's say is "rated R" because of her embellishments to directions.

Don't feel badly about not converting sooner. I retired after 33 years in the hi-tech industry and my cell phone is so old I'm surprised it doesn't have a rotary dial!

I'm not saying I'm old too, but when did they put a dial on the phone?! Sorry, gotta go now. I'm on a party line and the operator says she has to unplug me!

We love our TomTom. There have been only 2 instances where the TomTom b____, as we affectionately refer to her, has led us asstray. The worst one was inroute to a CG near Itchitutney(-3 for spelling), Fla. She took us down a narrow dirt road with no place to turn a 35'MH around to a road that had a farm gate on it, closed and locked of course. Got out of that one with a little damage to the coach and toad and exercised my entire vocabulary of naughty words. The other was simple, told us to turn left when we knew to go right. On a brighter note, we took it to Hawaii to use in the rental car. It would have been a misserable 2 weeks without it. Bottom line, we never leave home without it.with my TomTom.

Been using a Tom Tom for quite a while, however our XXL's screen stopped resonding, have now gone to Garmin to try something new. We don't totaly rely on it, we have MSN Streets and Trips, Iphone, and paper maps for total planning. Must be anal throw back to before I retired, cann't have to much info.
