    Destinator 3 / D3 Installation

    Now there is a ton of post explaining what and how to implement D3 into CF etc.

    But for us newbies itīs pretty difficult to find any information about HOW to install D3 so that it works with CF :-) You guys all seem to have this figured out, so please share....

    I have D3 for my PDA, and since it is not being produced for PC anymore, I assume this is the version you are all running, but how? Can CF read the maps itself, which PC application is CF calling, any things I should know?
    I also see that I need to buy the SDK?

    Please give a quick:

    1. Install XXX
    2. Install XXX2
    3. Copy Maps to XXX
    4. etc.

    Email [email protected] and ask him if the SDK will enable you to use your D3 licence and maps on the PC with Centrafuse software.

    He will probably tell you to buy the SDK, make sure when you buy it you state you wish to use it on the PC version.

    They will give you a link and username/password to a SDK - 3.0.75_97_COM_API.zip - you unzip this and copy the DestinatorApps folder to C:\ and copy your maps into the Destinator folder beneath.

    This is NOT ALL you need you WILL also need them to send you a Zip called DestDLL 08-05.zip - which contains DestDLL.DLL which is the Destinator component which will open the full size maps. Once you get this you need to copy it somewhere (say, C:\DestinatorApps\Destinator\DestDLL.DLL) and then run them command "regsvr32 C:\DestinatorApps\Destinator\DestDLL.DLL"
    Once this is done, enable Destinator support in centrafuse and it should work!

    EDIT: There is a PC version on the horizon according to David/veetid however they will not make any unofficial or official statement when it will be released.

    Help! I did all this, and London works, but when I try to switch to USA1 I get a popup error: Map not registered. I copied the contents of USA1 off the CD to DestinatorApps/destinator/USA1 and I also put the WCE.txt in there. What went wrong?

    You are running the demo destdll.dll not the official registered version.

    I dont use the new "SDK-mail-version".
    I use the older destdll.dll without the messeages and use destinator 3 Map Cutter for maps from my PDA.
    Works great.

    Ok, I found a good copy of Destdll.dll and all is good now. All I can say is WOW! Having a real Navigation system built in to CF totally kicks butt! The maps in D3 are ugly compared to DeLorme, but the functionality is sooooo much better through CF.
