IMHO it is way better than the earthmate software stuff, god I hated the earthmate while I had it, broke down and bought CoPilot
Let us know, I am going through the same decision process. I am leaning toward the Earthmate due to cost (3x). The CoPilot would have to be leaps and bounds ahead of everything else to justify the cost.Originally posted by gizmomkr
My favorite software in the whole world was Sony (Etak) Skymap 2000. It was one ofthe first with voice nav. I still love it ,but its outdated. <sniff> it came together with reciever for 275.
I tried everything else except Copilot. It SOUNDS great, and I have no problem paying for software im going to use, but there is no way in hell I am going to shell out the cash, (not to mention I will not use anything other than a garmin reciever) before testing it myself... And sadly none of my friends have a clue what to do with a car-pc , so they dont have any software....
So I just picked up Delorme's Street Atlas USA 2003 - Read through the manual last night , going to give it a try tonight
EvoX CarPC (in progress)
Acer Aspire One, OpenPort 2.0 cable, 12V car power adapter, ignition timed relay to unused pins on Ethernet port
Rhapsody, EcoScan, EcuFlash and still trying to make up my mind
EvoVIII CarPC retired
Well, (sadly) - I didnt have much time to play, but my old Etak reciever didnt work under Street Atlas. I will play with it some more, but my Garmin unit will be here any day... not going to invest too much more time into the old stuff.
more to come...

i am using the DeLorme Street Atlas 2003 and I find it works quite nicely. Ive never tried co-pilot, it looks awesome thought. The cost of it is just way to much for me at this time.
