    GPS Software & Receiver

    Has anyone here used any GPS Software without VGA and could see the street names and everything?

    The reason I ask is because I have my system together and I want to get gps also but I don't wanna buy something that won't be viewable.

    I was thinking of getting the Delorme Earthmate w/software.
    Has anybody used this without vga?

    Well, not entirely, because he *did* ask if anyone can recommend a package to use with a non-VGA screen...

    You have a very similar setup to myself (I have the exact same screen) - hopefully I'll be able to get infomap fired up on the smaller screen later (been testing on laptop) - although I'd say Destinator is the kiddy for these screens - big clear buttons (superb with touchscreen) and large font text make it a breeze to see & use.

    I have an 8" TFT VGA screen, and with Delorme Street Atlas RWE and with it Zoomed in to 150% it is quite legible.

    Other than that, it is hard to read.

    Put that in the FWIW category.
