        I guess that depends on what you mean by support. You can embed any windows app. However, if you want to have the music pause when a voice command comes up your stuck with destinator (for right now anyway). I might be putting my foot in my mouth so someone please correct me if I am wrong...

        I currently use destinator plugin for in town driving and it works just fine for me. I also use Topo USA when I am driving out of town or want really detailed information about my surroundings. To get both of these working I use a virtual GPS com tool called GPS Gate.

          Have you guys seen CoPilot GPS 9? I know a guy that used it and he said it was really good. Check it out:

            I used Copilot Live 6 on a pocketPC until now and loved it. But now I use destinator with CF1.6 in my car and so far it has been reliable and it gets me where I need to go... I am looking forward for the new interface in 1.7 though...

                I still like the overlays out there for Google Earth. I can't use it quite like I want to though because the embed app is still buggy.

                  Google earth is better for a home computer. Would be cool to setup destinator to send heart beats from the gps which you could have read from your home computer and plotted on google maps.

                      you just need to buy the maps to understand the gps data, but taking your position, etc. is all free

                        Ill correct you. Road runner now has the ability to have iguidance voice talk to you.

                        but for centrafuse i beleive its destinator all the way. all depends on which front end you use what works with it.

                        Id find a front end i wanted to use and then get what works best with it.

                            how about DeLorme 2005? That's what I have, running on CF 1.3 (waaaay back). Does delorme embed with CF anymore? I saw there were still problems, I couldn't get it to work with 1.6

                              hmm im debating whether i should get gps, i wont really need it you know

                              the only reason i would need it, if i get lost in the city trying to find a place, can i just input the name of the place or its address, and itll give me directions?
