TomTom 7 (7.916.9189) Graphics Issue - FIXED

Is it just me or does TomTom 7 (7.915.9196 available from tobeychris' ftp: ftp://ppcgeeks.com/Touch%20Pro%202/U...beychris/Cabs/ ) seem really choppy and not smooth at all? I know some people are having an issue with the GPS being behind by a second or two but this is a separate issue; it seems like the 3d-acceleration issues HTC devices have been experiencing in the last few years are the culprit.

TomTom 7 on my old Vogue was perfectly smooth and now that I'm using a TP2 at 800x480 resolution, not so much. I'm really hoping its just something that I haven't configured properly... I've tried installing the updated 3d drivers but no luck.

Anyone else out there?

Updated: Switching to 7.916.9189 QVGA version and using a Bluetooth GPS receiver makes it run like magic.

I just tried iGo 8.3.2.96054 and it's WAY better, just in case anyone is wondering. At least in my opinion. Not nearly as choppy, and you can even have terrain and buildings... pretty sweet.

In my limited testing of TomTom it seemed fine to me, but I'll also give iGo a shot.

Pro 2 is Also missing 3d accelaration. Confirmed!

Sorry to tell you. No 3D accelaration just like the Tilt,mogul,Diamond,Pro,touch and now the Pro 2. This is not a flame.... its a fact.

i wish it worked too.

I'm well aware of the lack of 3d acceleration... hopefully someday we can see the device working to its full potential. But the Vogue wasn't accelerated either and TomTom seemed to work fine on it.

Maybe I'm just doing something wrong.

Re: TomTom 7 (7.915.9196) Graphics Issue

reason it was smoother was cuz it was running on a very low resolution of 320 x 240. Now you rinnint at 800 x 480. Thats a performance hog.

Re: TomTom 7 (7.915.9196) Graphics Issue

Okay, I installed and did a test drive with 7.916.9189 & North_America_2GB_835_2421.

The frame rate is lower than that of the TP1, that's for sure but it is definitely still manageable. I mean, I only notice that its slower because I have experience with the same software on other devices. But it is by far still very well usable and the larger screen in this scenario is a BIG bonus.

This is my first install of 7.916.9189 and i'm really liking the small updates to the software.

Hope this helps.
