Right, I found out about iGO when I was home for Christmas, played with it for about a few weeks on the laptop, and deployed it to the carPC in the middle of Feb. I've long since tossed my IG4 install discs as there is no way in hades I would ever go back now that I have been spoiled with iGO.

The best part about the interface is that when you are searching an address, the program constantly filters the list for you based on what you have entered. This means that more often than not, you don't have to enter an entire street name. You can also search for POI's around specific points.
As far as program looks and appeal, definitely one of the best looking maps going. The framerate is exceptionally smooth and fluid, although it can be a bit of a cpu hog on low powered pc's (mine is a 2.4 ghz).
As for the North American Maps, they are out there. I live in Canada and have all of NA installed with 3d topography and buildings, at roughly the same footprint as IG4. I'm sure that once the app is officially released these will be more available(although only on PDA, the pc version is a demo and runs as an emulator. Do not ask me where to get it as that violates the rules here).
As for the focus issue, it is easily solvable in RR by adding some code to the buttons, and I have been working with CDRSkull on doing the same in FreeICE. I am currently running FI 1.8 dual screen in my truck modified to be iGO friendly. Currently working on 1.9 dual screen skin and incorporating the same.
HELP ..everybody is talking about IGO for CARPC but i can;t find the damn program anyware...plz help me with some links Romania map and IGO 2008 for pc ..thx :(
Best for IGo8 for PC I think it is:
you will find there and links for maps. Trebuie sa te inregistrezi!
i just discovered iGo yesterday.. and can already say i'll never use ig4 again. It runs great on my little valley board embedded in RR . I only wish there was a way i could adjust the program so that the direction of travel stays north.
Good to hear you like it!
I leave it in 3d mode and i'm always driving up the screen, is that what you mean?
what i mean is my direction of travel is always UP on the screen. This is how much GPS systems default in 2d and 3d
I'm using spawns sys file, 3d is always up, 2d is all over the place, apparently there isn,t a way to fix this in 2d. you can pick a 3d view that looks like 2d, like a top down 3d view....
Does someone use CF on Vista?
I'm having trouble integrating iGO8 into CF1.2, using igozoomer.
I had no problem under WinXP, but with the same settings, the igozoomer window now appears floating over the CF interface, even if I remove the window border from within igozoomer's settings. iGO doesn't even get killed upon exiting CF.
The window name given in CF settings is "iGO Zoomer", which is ok, it worked in XP.
Any ideas what might help me?
I'll be looking for this also. I am running IGO8.3.### on a (hacked) Mio c310x and I love it. If I can get this for my carpc, bye bye IG...
