does it freak out when you get to the other end of the tunnel much faster than anticipated.... or does it expect you to floor it with the windows down.

pretty good software.

Have to say on one trip through the tunnel, traffic was nearly stopped at one point and it definitely had me at the exit before I was actually there, very quickly reset once I did exit.

We have found in most Tunnels our Tom Tom XL One looses its signal, but on a tunnel last week (1.1 Miles) it kept it tracking fine. I believe there is a electronic smarts they fit in tunnels etc that the GPS can pick up and still track itself.

I went through the tunnels this morning and it looks like it just estimated where I was by the speed I was going on entry - it was pretty close on exit. I also liked the warning as I approached a fixed speed camera.  :thumbsup:
