Dell Axim + Tomtom. Routeplanning error

My Tomtom will only find routes within a short distance for example, if I'm only travelling 10 miles it will find me a route with no problems, however if I want to travel further than this it displays 'Error during planning', so I have to break the journey up into several shorter journeys. Very annoying. Have tried resetting both the PDA & GPS reciever several times but still not resolved. Any solution would be much appreciated.

The error during planning is a map error not an OS error. It will give you this warning if you try to nav somewhere that it cant see any way of getting to because there is a gap somewhere en-route. Normally its the last 100 yards or something. The workaround is to nav to an adjoining road or somewhere very close to where you want to end up. Oddly or maybe coincidentally (which I doubt at 60,000 miles per year) I have only had this happen on the new maps.

Santa with his son Banta were traveling on a boat after traveling one mile from the starting point the hat of Santa fell down. After 5 minutes Banta told his father about the hat. Santa turned the boat and...

At time 'ZERO', the hat was at distance 'ZERO' from the starting-point.
At time 'T', the hat was at distance 'ONE MILE' from the starting point.
The speed of the boat was the MAXIMUM speed of the boat, MINUS the speed of the current.
At time 'T+5', the hat was being carried by the stream-current toward distance 'ZERO'.
At time 'T+10', the hat was at distance 'ZERO', and the boat was at distance 'ZERO'.
The speed of the boat for the most-recent '10' minutes was the MAXIMUM speed, PLUS the speed of the current.

So, calculate the distance travelled at the 'T+5' time:
DISTANCE = VELOCITY1 multiplied by TIME1.
DISTANCE = VELOCITY2 multiplied by TIME2.

where 'VELOCITY1' is the speed travelling AGAINST the current,
and 'VELOCITY2' is the speed travelling WITH the current.

Finish this "homework" assignment on your own.

Wrong milage

There are a number of aspects to this:

The consumer type GPS has an average best accuracy of about 30 to 50 feet at any location. This is as long as it can have good reception from 3 satellites or more with no reflections. In the city there can be some reflections that can also contribute to errors.

When there are many turns along the route, some of its error rate can be accumulative in its caculations.

When the GPS is making calculations it is active on its results from the activity that is going on in the background of its operation. Sometimes it may see alternative combinations of possible routes and it may be sampling from these extra combinations, and then re-calculating. This can cause some changes in its calculations while on route which will look like some instability.

What the consumer maping GPS is good at is getting you to the location. This it should do this to within about 30 to 50 feet accuracy after the route has been completed. The GPS system works on a global basis. When considering the span of all of this and the distance to the satelites, this is feat in itself that it works!

Dell Axim 5 + TomTom navigator GPS ?

for those in the States at least, the economics. Many new vehicles here come with GPS and mapping options today for a nominal amount. I was also looking at this Garmin portable. I am not familiar with what is available in Europe though, I know the cellular technology is far ahead of the States. I just thought I would throw this out there. Good luck with your efforts.

Charging Axim while travelling

Do you mean another besides the A/C adapter? This is separate from the cradle (option), so you can take it with you together with the travel synch cable (option). Although Dell guides says to use no other chargers then the A/C adapter provided, this can be impractical in some situations. The spec on the charger is as follows. I suppose providing you meet this, you should be OK with a Auto or Lighter type adapter. Do so at your own risk.
