            The above posted features are not new in 2.1.3. This newest version only adds WM5 suport as far as I know.


            • #7
              yeah, most if not all of those features (except MW5 support) are in the last version

                Have 2.1NA and seen 2.1.3NA. I'm not impressed as there really are not any updates that make the change to the latest worth it.

                I actually think some parts of rural Canada got worse but maybe it's just me. There is a lake up there that does not even show the lake. It shows where the island road is and the road around it but no blue lake is on the map indicating there is a lake there; it was like this on 2.1NA and is still like this.

                I still find iG to be the best overall for Canada coverage but this update is not the worth it really.

                There are a few POI's I know have changed names and they were updated in the latest version (this is good I guess).

                  To the best of my knowledge new Canadian map data was added in 2.1. The subsequent releases were just (minor) application updates (bug fixes).

                        Yeah, anything with a gps dongle, it'll work with - laptop, desktop, mini-pc.

                          ok thanks man.

                            So how do you get the update? Can some one PM me the new theme.ini? I got to make sure none of the menu's changed again (so I can be sure the SKINbedder iGSKIN release I am working on will work with it).
