    I used to use routis which was the same as IG, then IG came along and I used it. For years this is all I would use. I tried them all. Then garmin came along and the graphics are very nice and the menus are easy to navigate. But then last weekend I too a trip about 100 miles and it lagged like I couldn't believe.
    Maybe it was my setup, but it froze more times than I could tolerate and the only thing I could relate it to was the distance of the route.
    I never had this happen with IG, so if your a long distance driver IGuidance all the way.

    no lag for me through NYC traffic on new years eve first time in the city.. I love garmin especially with the stuey voice and the new Navmute which lowers the audio now I triied them all and even triied the Igo08 that everyone loves but I think the POI's not in 3d mode suck! So Garmin is my prefrence also

    I'm currently using iG and considering upgrading to the latest version or switching to Garmin. I have a bit more research ahead of me before i decide, but one thing i was wondering about that I haven't found an answer to is does either IG09 or GMPC have the feature that you can save ur current location as a favorite without typing in the address? Like it just saves it using coordinates that it retrieves itself? I had this feature on a GPS on my phone and I loved it and the IG I have now doesn't seem to have it.

    oh yea and also, if using GMPC with RR is there support for lowering the volume of music when it speaks? I assume that it won't act like IG where it can switch to the GPS screen automatically when it gives directions

    If you are using ig4, cant you just click the area where the road name is displayed, it brings up the current lat/long with an option to save it as a favourite... Is this not what you are talking about?

    yes the audio auto mutes now just like IG native with "navmute", and yes on the favorites thing just touch where you want and select save as favorite. Also the scrren does change back to the GPS if your in music or other skin when a turns is approaching, I didnt notice this before the navmute though.. maybe it did but I know its doing it now.. as soon as the voice kicks in it auto swiches to the turn preview then goes back to the last skin you were on after it finishes. I have'nt found a any issues inside car with GMPC, ever since the navmute it been perfect.

    I use the newest version GMPC and it is so easy to use and integrate. If you get the OSK for it (for RR) it has all the embedding instructions right there in .ppt format. Took all of 5 minutes to do everything (embed and add the OSK)? Maybe less?

    I might be going for Garmin, only because I see they have now added the live traffic routing in the PC version. Thats something I really need, especially being in Miami. i was going to go with Navmii, but they are taking too long to release the US maps.
