I have the Raxiom Nav Radio and when I use the system for trips, it appears that the initial "arrival time" is grossly out of range.
For instance, a recent trip of approx. 800 miles, the unit gave an initial time nearly 3 hours more from the actual time required to make the trip. As my trip progressed, the nav system would recalculate and fine tune the time required.
My point being, if I input a destination and the software gives a time of 15 hrs to arrive for a 12 hr trip, it's hard to tell someone "I will arrive in 15 hrs" and then show up 3 hrs earlier.
Other GPS systems that I have used in the past (Garmin, Magellan, etc) gave me the time required and never wavered from that time and they were accurate.
Maybe I have some setting wrong or that's just the way this unit works. It's difficult to tell someone when I might arrive if the times are constantly changing. Doesn't appear very accurate if it keep changing the "arrival time"
I hope I am being clear to understand these issues I am experiencing....
Thanks for the help!!
