This has to make you wonder what other products the newer Intellistars have built in that have never been used...

I also took a video of my IntelliStar featuring the map:

Given luesjo12's assessments about the map product still using the old Akko font rather than the current Roboto font and also the maps being removed this morning, I guess TWC didn't intend on using said product and it was likely just glitching. Or, TWC could have been testing out the maps and they plan on updating it with Roboto in the future, perhaps even roll it out to the IS2 Jrs as well. Guess we'll just have to wait and see what happens next.  :dunno:

Iím sticking with it was an error. With LOT8s only running 2 times per hour max for one minute, thereís absolutely no reason TWC would be interested in adding a new product to the lineup.

TWC would test that internally first. I'm confident it was just a goof up ;)

It seems like the map has been turned off for now, but if you look at my first reply on this thread you'll see a map for somewhere pretty close to Chicago.
