    iguidance no more? Alternative?

    So I contacted inav yesterday about updated maps/iguidance 201x and this was their response:

    V2011 is our current version. There is no plan to release newer version at this time, and we may no longer support retail version.

    Thank you.

    OK, so $89 was a bit spendy to begin with but now I think it would be unwise to go with iguidance. The specs say 2010 nav data and no projected update.

    All of the GPS software comparison threads I have found on here seem to be too old to be useful. Garmin Mobile is only for smartphone now and the rest seem to be crap on a small (7") touch screen?

    Where to turn?

    I use Co-pilot Live v8 by ALK and I'm very happy with it. SNO

    That's a possibility. I'll have to look more at it tonight. Also a bit spendy. At least their updates are $49 instead of $79... puts total cost of ownership lower.

    Definitely interested in other options out there as well. I would like to see a modern list.

    <rabbit trail> SNO, you get any riding in? Here in NH we basically didn't get a winter. I did 150 miles and most of them I probably shouldn't have done (definitely wrecked my brand new shaper bars) I'm hoping we get some snow this week. I might go up north as they have a foot or so.</rabbit trail>

    Well...

    A free alternative is Navit. Not nearly as nice as others, but price is right.

    I've been using Sygic Fleet for the past 6 months or so and haven't looked back. The interface is slick, gorgeous i'll say. And the voice announcements also sound very good. Also it embeds in Centrafuse using I guidance plugin perfectly. Check out the digitalcar uk forums. They have a huge Sygic thread with all the info on where to download. And for the maps and activation, Google is your friend. Only took me about 30 minutes to find everything and get it up had running.

    is development on navit not-dead? The DBus stuff seems very dead which is a shame... Maybe it's improved since I tried it last.

    Copilot Live is probably the solution. I think I will be purchasing a license. Don't know why I didn't find it when searching... oh well. Thanks for the suggestions. Anybody using the live traffic? I'm thinking about getting a tethering plan for my iphone to use the feature along with other tethering benefits.
