    On my old TomTom I could reduce the average speed setting to give a more accurate journey time. I cannot find how to do it on my newer version, TomTom 25. Is it possible?

    The only way I can increase my journey time is buy selecting Camper of Bus or pedestrian, I do not have the ability to select an average speed.

    Dont think its possible on new TomToms.
    just calculates on known max speed limits.
    one more nail in TomToms coffin....user interaction is bottom of their list of priorities.
    it was only public demand on their forum page that got co-ordinate based route planning reinstated on the GO 50/500/5000 range.

    Over a non-stop 300 mile journey i can gain around 15 to 20 minutes over TomToms estimated time.

    It doesn't work that way for me, I'm usually behind. Plus I find that subconsciously I'm trying to beat it, so I become frustrated. Stupid I know, but there you are. Mind you, I don't think I'd want to do 300 miles non-stop.

    My TT Start25 hasn't any functionality to set an average speed but seems to learn from past driving and calculate accurate arrival times.
    Example, ambling along at 15/20 km/h under speed limit speeds in the MH the arrival time is usually accurate to within a few minutes and when I put in in the car and belt down a motorway in the car at a few kms/h over the limit after a while the arrival time changes to reflect the speed.

    Yes, you could be right, it does seem to do that. I think. Well, I'll check on my next long trip. It was my old TomTom that was almost always ahead.
