    Talking truck arrival time always wrong

    Anybody else come across this,
    im running truck 9.701 navcore. 940 map . On a 530
    everything fine ,except eta always shows more time than it actually takes.
    its quite a lot off, 2 hour journey will show 2 3/4 hours ,5 hour trip could show upto 2 hours more
    i know its minor complaint,
    navcore set up for bus at 100kph
    Previous 89 navcore was minuete perfect, but carnt run latest maps on it
    ive learnt to subtract excess time ,if asked for eta
    but be nice to hear if anyone else found solution
    thanks

    Why Nc 9.701 ? Try NC 9.702 . Maybe your Problem gone away

    Son has tomtom GO720 with Nc 9.702 and truck 940 map set to 54mph and eta's are always within 2 min's of time stated when starting at end of run.
    So I would say try changing your Nc to 9.702 and see if that sorts you problem.

    cheers guys
    ill give them a try .
    its no loss if i set it to truck instead of bus. because it will not differentiate between either .still will not tell me to use bus lanes.
    ill keep you posted

    Ive tried 9.702 exactly same problem.
    set it up for truck instead of coach. No difference
    only gives correct time when i set it to car or van,
    which i dont want to do ,for obvious reasons.
    old 8.9 navcore never had this problem.
    ah well worth a try , got used to mentally subtracting time from 530 when asked for eta
    thanks

    Thanks quin 1965 thats the navore im using ie 9.702 1512362.1 to be exact
    also its not related to a particular model of tomtom.
    ive put onto mates tomtoms at work. all do the overestimate of time , tomtom *20 or *30s.
    cheers

    Not trying to teach you to suck eggs or anything BUT......

    When you put in truck/coach weights and height etc.....did you put in speed?

    I put 54mph/89km/h for my truck and its pretty accurate

    Regards

    thanks Ripper31
    yea after putting dimensions for the coach the second to last question is speed then after that it asks about warnings for dead ends
    you have to input something before it goes onto next question
    so speed definitely put in
