    Default Satnav mysteries Peugeot 2008

    My 2017 model 2008 has a satnav that I assume is common to other models of similar date. It works well enough for me to pension off my Tomtom satnav - at least until the updates become other than free ...

    A couple of questions

    Does anyone know the origin of the satnav system that Peugeot now use? Seems a little like tomtom but I really don’t know.

    I like the satnav driving preferences that can be decided upon. There are four. fastest, shortest, compromise and Ecological(?). Does anyone know what the guidance logic may be behind this preference? Does it mean “driving through the most picturesque countryside”. It seemed to do that once for me, but is was travelling through picturesque countryside anyway so really don’t know?

    Any considered, useful or witty opinions would be looked at.

    That gold lol I think they use the theory that 90k an hour or so is the best fuel time compromise so routed on roads like that if possible

    Makes sense. 90 is a tad short for me so may not use it unless I’m doing my roundabout cruising routes avoiding highways.
