    Probably right. Just seems such a popular package, would be a shame to not be able to try it over here.

    Wink Co-Pilot Laptop 7 includes Maps of Europe

    I just received my Co-Pilot upgrade today(Co-Pilot Live Laptop 7) and it includes a data disc which is labeled "Maps of Europe". I don't know the details but you have to contact TravRoute for the unlock code to use the disk (AKA Mo $$$$$). Looks like you guys will get to experience a good GPS program after all. I tried to install my upgrade on my laptop tonight but couldn't get my network card to work so I can't tell you anymore. It does give you the option of installing American or European English during the initial install.


    Check this link out for the details :

    Hi there 10-75 - So, what do you think? Any cool features to report? I'm considering buying it, especially now that I hear it has some cool 2-way stuff like the ability to broadcast your position. (I'm happy to see that it's come "down" to $250 too.)

    Cheers,

    Taylor

    Taylor,

    The only new features I know of are the two way feature, improved interface, the voice recognition I think is supposed to be better, and the database is supposed to be improved and IT DOES INCLUDE EUROPE as well although I'm from the states so I won't be able nor have the reason to try that part out. The last version was very good IMHO (I've had this pgm since Ver 1.0) so I doubt that this version will be a disappointment.... I'm curious to here what you guy's from Europe think about it compared to Desinator etc.....I'll let you know when I get mine running... Bill

    Sounds like we migh tbe in with an option then. I unfortunatley won't be able to afford to be a guineapig, but, if someone aq little more weathly gives it the thumbs up, I certainly would be willing to go with it.

    Great news (hope that an europe only version will come!)

    I hate mappoint => No Dynamic Route Guidance & No Automatic Route Recalculation & No spoken instructions...

    Only nicemap

    For europe try mapsonic & destinator
    Epia M9000, lili 7" vga&touch & 2xTM-7002S compo, camera with reversed image, 2.5" 60 GB, 256Mb DDR, Opus 90W, GPS usb... AND MEDIACRUISER of course!

    Mapsonic is only 79.99 in the UK.

    Though it's for Pocket PC/PalmOS. You do get MapStore with it which is for the PC. Strange that you can't buy MapStore on its own though?

    Be nice to know if MapStore has an OLE interface or similar to embed it in another application.

    Car changed for TVR Griffith 500, so computer de-installed. Using a Dension 100ix w/60Gb HD unit in the interim.

    if you spend a couple of $ for aGPS as an add on to mappoint (and I mean just a few $) you can add routing, re-calculation, and voice instruction easily.

    there's no sdk or cx with mapstore...

    You can "pilot" it with using windows handle...

    Yes you got mapsonic & mapstore in the package!

    Mapsonic is a great choice:
    Dynamic Route Guidance
    Automatic Route Recalculation
    spoken instructions... (.wav that you can update with your own)

    SWI was bought by michelin now (let's wait for a new version)

    But europ version of copilot will be great!

    I've also heard that in addition to Copilot's improved voice recognition, there is improved voice synthesis! From what I've heard, this is a welcome feature! Look forward to learning how it sounds.
