Truck 9.700/9.701 tips & tricks (more welcome here)
If you DO want to use the 9.7** navcore (see other posts/reports about errors in this navcore) because you want to run the v910 or later Truck map (which will ONLY run on this navcore) then here are a couple of tweaks summarised below:-
Problem 1: When entering Vehicle height you can't add the . "dot" or ' foot mark eg.
if you want to add 14' 9" high, you can only enter 14' or 15' not between size.
Solution: if you set height at 14' then tap done...
it then goes to vehicle width, tap back...it goes back to vehicle height...
tap the screen anywhere but not on the keypad (this will remove the white box around the 14')
now enter 9 and then done, this will give you vehicle height of 14'9"
the same process can be done with vehicle length/height/width
Problem 2 (ONLY for the x40's): After initial boot up after a hard reset or inserting your truck card when you CAN set your vehicle dimensions, this screen/option is not available again.
1. Change preferences > Planning preferences > Edit vehicle profile from there
2. Set a new destination and when it's all set up the last screen will tell you your vehicle profile where you can change it
Also note, if you select "car/taxi/van/other" profile you lose the option to change vehicle profile again unless you remove SD card/reboot/re-insert etc or do a factory reset THEN you have the option back.
