    Iguidance or GarminMobile

    Ok for my CarPC I need to decide on what GPS software to use. It seems Garmins new software is good yet everyone uses Iguidance as well so Im in a bind. There are not much reviews out for either (Im talking about 09 Iguidance) so what should I get? Iguidance cost $99 and Garmin Cost ??

    I can only compare IG3 with GMPC and Garmin is my choice. POI's are better and many functions we are programing into our frontends are natively supported in GMPC. ie. Gas Prices and Weather. This is just my opinion though.

    The biggest drawback to Garmin is the lack of an On-Screen Keyboard (OSK). Although there is a working option available to overcome that deficiency, but only within the RoadRunner front end.

    So what im getting from this is that the new iguidance doesn't have gas prices and weather?? where as the Garmin does? The only cool feature I see in Iguidance over Garmin is the 3d view which knowing my area will not be supported.

    Also why is Garmin only $60 vs Iguidance $99

    because iguidance is overpriced and less supported lol thats the only real reason.
