    I just saw this on It looks pretty sweet.....and they're running it on macs. It doesn't really go into much detail, but how do you think this is possible and what software do you think they are using? Please make any coment. Thanks.

    Theres no special software, they are just running a navigation program i.e. route 66, and a webcam program. They don't actually send any data through the web connection, only suggest it. Developer (I am Chuck)

            Yeah, I saw something about that on It looks very similar to something that Frodo is working on.

              That is exactly what I am working on. As soon as I get my webcam I'll have that part of it implemented.
