  • GPS software

    I was wondering what GPS software would be best for a 5;6" screen. No receiver because Im gonna be hooking up my garmin to it. Would love voice command and navi if possible!

      I have Streets-n-Trips 2k and Street Atlas RWE.

      I would prefer a third alternative. SnT has a fully customizable display, colors font size, zoom, detail level, etc. No directions. (other than the whole trip)

      RWE has a zoom, but it also has voice directions, and a display at the bottom of the screen showing next turn: direction, distance, time...and ETA at final destination. And if you get off course it continually tries to turn you back to course.

      I like the directions and voice (could be louder) of RWE. I like the Maps of S&T.

      Right now everytime I take a road trip I use RWE, even though both are installed and ready to go.

        If you just want maps, I would say Street Atlas 8 (not the RWE version).

        As for Skymap 2000, I think Sony & Etak have dropped it. I can't find anyone who still sells the software and GPS receiver.

          Etak split from Sony, the product is alive and well, and is about to have a service release. Etak partnered with a new company , and is still selling.

            CDW shows it as 'special order' which means they don't have it in stock. (I wonder if they can still get it)

            Since the program is about 2 years old now, is Etak going to relase updated map data? I checked out the Etak website, but it's not listed as a current product anymore.

              I spoke with them the other day, they expect to do a service release shortly ( bug fixes, no map data) and a map DB release in the next couple months.

              I was also told the skymp product was here to stay, but would be completely revamped as they split from sony.
