    We've been told again and again in second hand information that there will be no PC version. I've sent them emails and got no reply. Car PC suppliers in the UK have even had to sell the PPC version, surely they would have been told if there really was a PC version on the way.

    I get the impression that they are seeing there is actually a market for the PC product and from what you're saying they are mad at people like me who have been honest enough to give them my money even though officially I get nothing in return except the knowledge that I'm trying to be as above board as possible.

    If you could find out what they are going to do for people who've been honest enough to buy the product when there was no official Destinator PC version on the cards I would appreciate it.

    I agree with everyone... This was a big mess... I was on the phone with the guys at Destinator this afternoon and they said their PC version will be done within 2 weeks. This version is the only one that is going to include the DLL that is needed. The maps will be the same as the PPC version, it's just their finished legal DLL, they plan on installing for you when you install the PC version....

    After talking with them today, I will pretty much just have Destinator for sale as a package with CENTRAFUSE. There will be no up charging. I will charge whatever they charge, but it will be a seperate program. You will install Destinator 3 PC, then install CENTRAFUSE and it will work... I might not even deal with becoming a distributor after the talk I had today. My program will just work with Destinator 3 if you have the Destinator 3 PC version installed...

    You would think these companies would be smart enough to know that producing a product for use with CarPCs is a pretty big market. Its confusing as to why something hasnt came out that is really carpc friendly. I mean Iguidance is tiny and destinator you have legal issues and other stuff, seems odd. Just my two cents...

    Good

    I don't think that PL will include so many futures as NM has in this fronted. So thest buy centrafuce 2 pro then buy destinator with legal dll and use nm fronted..

    I don't understand why PL can't sell just a legal dll. we don't need their GUI...

    With D3 integration, will there be a way to install all US maps in order to map a route from one edge/region of the nation to the other, or would that be a function of the D3 PC release?
