      earthmate/street atlas 9

      I found that street atlas 9 initializes much faster than street atlas deluxe for some reason

      I've been a couple places where my location was off by a couple miles.. I'm not sure if that was from the batteries though.. I'll be visiting my friend this weekend and using my gps. I'll let you know if my results differ now that my setup is changed

          What software you guys in Europe are using?

          Is there any emulator software that let you run the map CDs of the commercial in vehicle navigation systems on a PC?

            Trackmate (modified to be NMEA compliant) and MS Streets & Trips (only software with good Canadian coverage). It does a good job of giving accurate directions, but it is missing some features that would be nice in the car like spoken directions or proper screen resizing for a small LCD.

              Its like it was written for small car screens instead of laptops. Perfect size fonts, onscreen keyboard, and menus on my 6.5" widescreen. And spoken routing. People wont believe that its not an aftermarket gps system in my car costing 1000's rather than an old cyrix based PC.

                  Rand Mcnally GPS reciever/ Copilot 2002 and Street finder Deluxe/ Yes. I mostly use CoPilot, for the turn by turn directions + voice commands, but I find that Street Finder is more accurate.

                    I use Street Atlas 8 to plan trips and stuff on my laptop or home computer. When I want to "look at a map." But it needs more space to be practically, hence not on the car computer's 6" LCD. Might be useful for those with a 14" though.

                        StreetAtlas for Mac / Garmin Legend GPS / Co-Pilot 2002 running on a Windows emulator under MacOS X.

                        I also use MS Streets occasionally. They seem to have the most accurate maps (at least in my area).

                          I'm in the uk and currently using:

                          HAiCOM 201E as the gps reciever (connects to serial port/ps2 port)

                          Coupled with:
                          Autoroute 2002 (Streets and Trips in america) and
                          Route66 Route Britian 2003.

                          There both pretty cool (gps support in Route66 is better imho than autoroute) still there both nowhere near perfect!

                              I'm using my Magellan Map330 with Microsoft S&T right now, but I'm definitely looking for something with voice instruction. I'm really interested in CoPilot, but can't seem to find it without the GPS included. Does it even come in a just-software package?

                              I also occasionally fire up USA Photo Maps (http://www.jdmcox.com) to see a nice overhead satellite picture from Microsoft's Terraserver.
