  • GPS software for my carputer (Europe/Norway)

    As the topic implies im searching for a GPS-software that works for regular PC's and covers Europe and preferably also Norway (at least major cities).
    Sure, i got Route 66, but i doesnt got 3d/birdseye view, it doesnt have turn-by-turn directions and it doesnt "talk"

    Anyone know about a better app?

      Are u absolutely sure that MapSonic work for PC's? To me it seems like a PDA/palm-application?

          Oh... Well then, my bad
          Anybody tested this? Just to know that the 3d/turnbyturn really works in PC-mode... The PC-mode isnt just there to "assist" the PDA mode? Kinda bad explanation, but you get it?

              I use Map sonic, works good, recalculates the route really fast! and talks to you. but it sucks on a touch screen

              I just downloaded the patches, sure they say for pocket PC, but IŽll give it a try... will probably not work.

              anyone else who got the 3D working on a PC?

                Hi all

                I'm using MapSonic (actually MapStore, which it is called on PC) in my carpc running WinXP. The 3D feature works great, when changing to "Navigation Mode" it becomes a bit more touchscreen friendly - only the "Navigate to.." where you have to type in your search string is annoying.

                      When you go to Navigation Mode, just click/touch the map - a box with display options should show up with big buttons, where you can select Nightmode, Parameters, Navigate to and also enable 3D.

                      That is on latest patch 1.3.2.

                        Make sure you got the latest patch. The older version only support 2D.

                        Its called mapsonic for PDA and mapstore for laptop. So look for mapstore patch on their website.

                        Once installed youll find 3D option on the menu somewhere

                            In the ZIP file above youll find MapStore.exe which is the LAPTOP version. I cant remember the install procedure but I know I got it working just by unpacking it on the program directory...otherwise read the README.


                            but the program now speaks french

                            Go to language setting...somewhere in the menu.


                            thanks so far
