For these modified Street data, there is the route option in the F10, “smart”. Anders calculated the cunning variant as the standard data-based option “fast” track so speeds actually driven.

And actually the F10 selects already at Smart routes. F10 anyone who registered and regularly at the PC to connect his Navi comes to enjoy of this clever navigation. Because then it will download the tempo indices corrected by other users for which of these earlier roads themselves.

And because this information with specific collection times and days of the week are linked, the Navi takes the route smartest at this point respectively. Yet the data base but not big is nationwide enough so that which works.

New software, new features

As of now, there is the F10 new version 9.0, which brings more improvements. The most obvious is the new and very clear destination screen.

There are highways in reality view or in “Real view” now, on Falk as Falk calls it. The new split screen is in addition to the 3-D view simplified the map or displays the directions arrows.

The system performance is significantly improved: the F10 fixer responds to input, speech input targets works perfectly. The acoustic guidance can be although occasionally miss a note, some announcement comes slightly early, but that would be a problem only when the monitor is defective. The guidance works very well in combination with the display.

Multimedia satellite

Since the F10 with the new software in performance and operation has risen and still dominates TMC-Pro, it is now on a step. Add Bluetooth hands-free system, games, and multimedia are tired of and a good guide of MairDumont (Marco Polo).

Map updates are via the Falk homepage within 30 days of purchase two years including during registration. Many functions, top navigation with learning function, very good handling: The F10 is a top navigation and get five more points with the new software.
