Usually the units ship with a software disk that has a program to show you your location and how many satelites it has detected with their relative strengths. This will show you the gps unit is working.
Lol no, it seems that i've got a newer version because they've now updated Street Atlas with touchscreen users in mind.
To me the Data (next turn, eta, distance traveled, ect) is better placed and easier to read. Also, the menu's follow the same standard, and to me are much nicer than the iGuidance one. The grey bar running horizontally, with the green and red dot show you where you are in refrence to your starting point and ending destination.
I've been running Street Atlas 2010 Plus embedded in RideRunner for about 3 months. Personally I am totally stoked and happy with it. It does work well even on a seven inch touch screen. I have dual touch screens with a custom dual screen skin. So when I open my nav screen, it embeds delorme into the first screen where I will have other Riderunner features in the second. The voice commands are fun to use, and I can't be happier with it. It works well. Best thing was that I caught it on sale for $19. It was truly a steal. And on a sidenote, there is none of that activation license bullcrap so you can have it installed on more than one pc without a hassle. A total win win deal. I can't say any of that about Iguidance.
ATTENTION FELLOW CAR PC ENTHUSIASTS, POWER ACOUSTIC = CAR PC KRYPTONITE!!!! AVOID AT ALL COSTS!!!!
To my adoring fans, No my Toyota's gas pedal didn't get stuck! Instead I saw you crossing the street and decided to floor it! Unfortunately, I MISSED!!!
Roadrunner supports iGuidance integration out of the box. It's much nicer than opening a new window for nav. But like i said, i think Street Atlas has a better ui, only lacking on-screen keyboard support and seemless integration with road runner.
