I downloaded GPSAssist a couple of nights ago, and here is an edited copy of the message I sent to their support Email address but as yet have had no response:

It has crashed twice (my first day of use, but again on the second day) but perhaps more importantly, I have a few points to make.

1:    The Visualisation/Visually indicate nearest POI option obscures the TomTom Navigator toolbar at the bottom of the screen - it's desirable to have access to the title bar in order to check File-GPS Status (& access the 'Tools' menu).

2:    The Visualisation/Automatic Night colours appears to have a shortcoming; I live in the UK, and as my Regional Settings specify a date format of DD/MM/YY GPSAssist thinks it's March here, so I can't see how this feature will work properly with these settings. I actually prefer the 'US' date format of MM/DD/YY but I can't really change my Regional Settings to use it here as it would be too confusing.

3:    Although selected, the 'Popup Speed Limit Warning' didn't work for me today (it has since, but I don't like this feature and won't use it, so not an issue for me).

4:    I believe the 'Default Warning Distances' need to work at *any* User-definable distance, not just at a maximum of 2000m - because when a User wants to be warned of a POI, even at large distances (yes, I would consider detouring a 'large' distance if travelling the country and find myself within, say, 60 miles of a POI I didn't realise I was anywhere near but would like to visit).

Overall, an really good product, which for me, would be truly outstanding if I could have the improvements/fixes detailed above - I would definitely buy it and future upgrades if these were implemented. Any chance of these as the software is developed?

And if I've misunderstood any functionality...... Smile Please let me know

Thanks and Regards,
