Live Search worked better on my Mogul

I upgraded to my new Touch Pro from the Mogul and I like almost everything better about it. I have a few issues with using Live Search though...

First of all, when I'm driving the GPS is following me fine, but the map takes forever or never updates, so it looks like I'm just driving into a big blank nothing. I know that my data works quickly all the time, so why doesn't it load the map properly like it did on my Mogul?

Also, one of my favorite upgrades on the TP is the VGA screen!! BUT, the words are so tiny on Live Search that I can't read it while trying to navigate. I don't see any options to make text bigger. Is there any hack for this?

Thanks for any help!

I'm surprised they don't have a vga version out yet. Hopefully they get one out soon.

Its Baffling to me that MS hasn't done anything about this yet!
