    As is says on the lid - benchmark your TomTom (or other satnav system)

    Route start - John O'Groats
    Route end - Land's End
    Use fastest route option, avoid toll roads (shouldn't be any)
    Start your stopwatch when your device start planning the route, stop it when the device is 'Done' edit: ie after it's finished writing the route instructions
    State TomTom version number, map version.


    Qtek 9000 (aka Imate JasJar, Orange M5000 etc)
    CPU - Intel PXA270 @ 520MHz
    TomTom v5.210, map v605
    memory card - Kingston Elite Pro 1GB
    In portrait orientation - 1m26s
    in landscape - 2m46s

    Orange SPV C600
    CPU - TI OMAP850 @ 195Mhz
    TomTom v5.200, map v605
    memory card - Kingston miniSD 512MB

    Tom Tom Go 700 Ver 5.420 & Maps Western Europe Ver 6.06.

    76 Sec's to calculate and write the route on first run.

    Powered off the TTG and re run the route as before this time 35 Secs so it must cache previous used routes.

    I'm very surprised as this phone is normally pretty slow at less than 200Mhz :eek:

    Heh! Opps, i didn't see the map version listed in there. I only thought it quoted the app version and that was it.

    But then this thread is rather old, so that's only fair that it doesn't take too long.

    Yeah even the Nokia N95 with it's built in maps finds the route in 15 seconds.
