    "Local Search" on truck navcore 8.398

    Default "Local Search" on truck navcore 8.398

    As google search has been replaced by local search in live devices is there a way of getting this working on the truck navcore 8.398?

    The reason I ask is that some of my punters with x40's incl paid Live services cannot (obviously) now use google search but that still shows as the only "search" button on 8.398??

    Dont know why you should want that. Local search sucks. For every 10 times i search for something on m 5150 is get 7 times no result. With the 940 i did get for every search a result.

    Thanks corne64 but of course TT have stopped the google search & replaced with the useless Local search with their latest navcores but the old button's still there on 8.398 running the truck map so my customers are peed off they have no live search any more.

    Yeah, I agree. I was just wondering if there was any way of getting the local search button/function on to 8.398

    x50 with 8.398 - the same problem. "google" button not working.
    The only way (I think) to change it is new navcore, or somebody who know what file, how to open it and "re-map" google button. :-(

    So, maybe TT will make this correction or new navcore for Go x20, x30, 7000, etc. users?

    regards

    EDIT: "google search" giving only these result:
    Local Search has been updated to TomTom Places. Download update at TTomTom.com/search (...)

    At this link I found just article titled: Local Search with Google has been replaced by TomTom Places

    I found this: (...)Note: To learn how to update your TomTom Business Solutions device, click here.(...)
    Link sent me to: How to update the software on a navigation device

    My device is x50, so I can't update it this way... On business tomtom still no new navcore.
    Maybe will be soon?

    I agree. Unfortunately we're stuck with 8.398 to run the truck map and as this is ONLY needed for this I can't see TT updating this to (for example 8.399) just to incl local search in an obsolete navcore

    So far one suggestion from downunder35:-

    I needed to patch the internal 9.465 to read the truck map card (as I leave the internal clean/unpatched on my own device), booted up THEN inserted the truck/8.398 card and selected truck map then used local search (tested with "station") which planned route then gave me a recent destination.
    Rebooted with truck card in and now this recent destination (local station) is in my truck map

    Soooo...yes, this can be done but not an ideal method

    Plan b)?
