The only way to find out what I want is to try one of everything if I can.

    I may end up with Destinator in the end because of it's integration and support through this forum. I'm just not convinced yet.

    I've tried Delorme Street Atlas and that is just a horror show with a 7" touch screen. I like copilot because of it's clean interface in the guidance screen. I like the POI and how that works. I like the full text navigation screen which commmunicates turn by turn while displaying the upcoming intersection and turn required. Instead of showing the whole map it just shows the one leg of the route. Very clean and easily understood.

    Thanks for the comments and discussion.

    I forgot to ask one more thing. In destinator can you enter a destination that is not part of the currently loaded map? If not then how is the destination handled when you need to change maps in order to reach it? I always this.

    Let's say I want to go to Toronto Canada. I currently live in Massachusetts and I travel there a couple time a year. I would like to enter the end point and have it plot my route. I would also like to have stops along the way using the POI interface. Can this be done?

    Have you had to switch maps during a trip? How did you handle this with Destinator.

    Thanks for the help.

    As far as maps, i never change because im in california and the map i always have loaded is the entire west region of the USA. I would never really drive anywhere outside of the map, so im set. Your case is different. I'd contact Ninja Monkey who is the creator of Destinator 3 for carpcs. I'm sure he can answer your questions better than i can.

    i personally dont use POI's much, so that would be a better question for the Destinator chat area.... Give it a try

    First of all i use Copilot 7 and iGuidance 2

    I have never once used planning mode with copilot...ever

    Destinator is fine for other countries but for us in the USA we get a bumb deal by having our maps split up. So if you want to travel from state to state you can't.

    This makes me angry. I think that it is sooo lame. So unless someone figures out how to make one huge map or combine all of the split up ones then Destinator is NOT an option for me.

    I guess if you didn't ever need to switch maps and didn't mind the POI then Destinator NM 3 would be fine. I think it is great what an awesome job Ninja monkey has done. Unfortunatly it is more suited for other countries. And since the majority of people that use it are not from the USA i doubt we will ever get a coast to coast fix.

    What are you guys using as the gps name in CF to get it to embed? I could not figure that out and ended up using the alt-tab program to toggle.

    I used CoPilot Live and mine worked fine.. except for the fact of the Guidance mode issue.
