Is it only me?

I keep setting the destination on my TomTom and try to beat the predicted arrival time.

I have been known to exceed the enforced speed limits in pursuit of this, does this make me a bad person :grin:

I do it all the time :laugh:

And it becomes REALLY annoying when you get held up in roadworks when you're "on a mission" :D

Never have that mission when following my big map with all the MacDonalds and speed cameras marked on it:laugh: :laugh:

Does the predicted arrival time not change as you approach the destination making the result a draw every time?

Albert don't think it's calibrated for F40 travel timescales, I mean thats the closest thing to a Delorean film star!!

Yes Ken, it does (on my PDA version at least). I was thinking the same thing myself !

The wife's Audi uses history of motorway speeds to recalibrate journey times. As such, my early victories in beating the ETA mean now I have to drive at at least a ton on motorways just to keep up!

Most of them do run real time, you just need to make a note of what time is says you will get there before you set off, and then see how much you can bring it down by.
