Is it possible to speed up the demo in simulation mode? I used to be able to in my old TomTom.

Don't think so. Nowhere near as useful as it could be. And probably slower than you would actually drive the route,.

But do you really want to simulate a long route? If I simulate anything it's generally a short section only.

Sure. I found two to three miles seemed to take ages! I guess I am impatient!

I haven't done it for ages, but, simulation runs at the road speed limit but, the crucial bit is that you can set a simulated route from a user requested A to B.

If you want to test a particular camera this saves a load of armchair time.

Try this:
Start the simulator running at normal speed.
Go into diagnostics (Volume - Master Volume - touch right hand corner of screen for 5 seconds or View Map - Speed - touch speed (top row centre) for 5 seconds).
Select Developer test and tools - Audio - Audio / Voice Test - Set simulator to Max. speed.
This will multiply the speed by 3 so that a 60 mph road will run at 180 mph.
Repeatedly 'back arrow' to get back to the map.

Yep, if you want to run a long route that will help but as I posted above why would you want to simulate the whole route?

Now the OP has both options he can decide. Very Happy
