  • Which Satnav do I code for?

    Just wondering what is the most popular satnav PC software everyone is using? It will need to be worldwide.. If you could let me know which version then I will download and have a play ready for the alpha 2 release.

    thanks,

    I would take a look at Navit, I believe that's what Meego is using.

        i think iGuidance is still the most used in the states. GMPC picked up steam for awhile there but its discontinued

          Sonic is correct with his statement, I proposed Navit because it's open source and globally supported, however it has the perception of not being as up to date as Iguidance, which may be correct for the US.

            Hi fella, I just had a go of Navit and to be honest I couldn't get much out of it. The control functions on it are terrible and I couldn't even get it to route. I expected to be able to press the screen and a route to option appear not action. I'm hoping it's just me as if that's all that a car PC has to offer after my 3 year break then it's not much good.

                  I'm running destinator v9 but the original v6 maybe still works fine,

                  Haven't used iguidence but am willing to have crack at it.

                      I'd vote garmin mobile PC, discontinued but I still think it's the best
                      The epitome of Function over form and is probably the best Car PC in Europe.
