    It's also really too bad there isn't a downloadable trial, or even able to download D3 after paying! But alas, it's just a few day delivery.

    /me waits.

    Install Mapmonkey and setup the GPS Windows name in CF Setup and you will see.

    D3 was originally produced for PDA only, NM hacked the .dll file to allow it to run on PC and with full size Maps.... The guys at destinator were a bit ****ed about this so stopped it and forced NM to use a restriced .dll in any more release which is why, if you download MapMonkey now from the support software sub-forum, you will se a big gay red message and only allowed to use smaller maps.

    So you need the old .dll and full size maps....,, which you should really buy.

    But as i understand it Veetid is doing a deal with PowerLoc (The guys that make the real version of D3) to become a distributer, then he can integrate it Fully into CF but this will probably mean we have to pay for it - along with the Charges for PhoCo,

    However those not wanting to pay will still be able to use a basic version for free which will be something like what we are all using now.

    think thats about it - im sure Royn will correct me if i am wrong!

    I have the fully legal DLL/PC D3 version from destinator to use it on the PC, I bought the PPC version of D3 for the UK and the $50 SDK and they sent me the right DLL, eventually.

    Why oh why is it so difficult to get the right dll anyway? I've noticed that many people have to bug the hell out of them at PowerLoc to get it.

    The D3 PC version isn't complete yet, therefore it's not readily available. It will be finished soon, if it isn't already. Also... You make it sound like some anonymous user hacked a PDA DLL and got it working on the PC and this is not the case. Powerloc was always working on a PC version of D3, they created this SDK and DLL, which is meant for the PC only. They did slow down the project and consider not finishing it, which caused a lot of talk in the forums here... Some anonymous user did hack the DLL to allow it to use bigger maps... Don't be confused... Powerloc wrote the PC version of D3 and that is all myself and NM use.. We just wrap a frontend around all of Powerloc's code from their DLL which they wrote for the PC...

    no... When I refer to the DLL and PC version of Destinator 3 I am talking about the SDK. If you have used the SDK then you can see that it is pretty much a fully functional PC version of Destinator 3. All those menus and screens are from the SDK and not customized by myself or NM. Powerloc is throwing together a PC version based on their SDK. This is all that you will need to purchase and install for CENTRAFUSE to work. Once installed it will register the needed DLL.

    As for people who already purchased the PDA version and have the maps, all they would need is the final retail version DLL, but after speaking with Powerloc I am not sure they want to seperate it. They want the only way to have the legal final retail DLL installed is by installing their upcoming PC version. They will possibly have upgrade deals for people with the PDA version to get a copy of the PC version, but I am not sure.

    Oh right I have the SDK + PC DLL version - the only current way for PPC users to upgrade seems to use the unofficial method of paying for the SDK, the moaning like buggery about wanting the proper DLL.

    For an 'international' company they sure are bad at communication, it seems internally and with their customers.

    David, do you have any plans to implement methods of writing plug-ins, similar to Map Monkey's MonkeyTalk DLL?
