  • Which software / gps reciever to go with?

    Which software should I use with Road Runner front end and which gps pod should I use?

    I have seen alot of different ones on ebay and it seems most go with the 6030.

    Then also the gps software since most of the time you get these together I want to try to get this right and not waste money.


    I know with aftermarket GPS systems there is a speed control wire for the car do these units need this also ? If not how is it they figure out speed and direction?

    A GPS figures out speed & direction based on position.
    Pretty much any GPS receiver will work, really.

    As far as software, there are several good ones.
    MapMonkey is popular, but requires buying an SDK, a POcketPC product and some tweaking.
    Routis is also popular. So is iGuidance. CoPilot Live is good, but more expensive than any other package.
    MS Streets & Trips sucks for navigation.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

      any thoughts on National Geographic Back Roads Explorer Map Software?

        Search on "Best GPS" or "GPS software". Or "National Geographic". The "best" GPS software and receiver question gets asked a lot.
